Production Specifics

Bute are specialists in warping, weaving and darning. 18 Dobby looms are available, though we are unable to produce jacquard designs. Typical clients are architects & designers, furniture manufacturers, auditoria, conference centres, airlines, corporate businesses, theatres, hotels & restaurants, lecture theatres. There is an in-house design studio to work through specific designs, and an archive for inspiration. Ideally you understand technical specifications already (e.g file types or quantities) and can come with a budget and project timeline. Turnaround can be next day for existing fabrics.
