St Lucia - Let the Springtime light shine in



Betta Blinds visits Four Families

A recent visit to Victoria by our Sales Representatives, Mark and Sam, along with Sharyn (General Manager) and Eddie (Production Manager) was a wonderful opportunity to accept a long standing invitation to visit the Four Families operation in Geelong.

It was a treat to see their facilities and meet their wonderful team.  

A highlight was meeting with Maya (the head designer), who showed us the latest research and development on weaving and colours for fabrics coming online.  We loved their showroom too! (pic at right)

We were also privileged to see their extensive, and very high tech, fabric testing operation.  No wonder our fabric cutters praise Four Families fabrics for being the best received, flaw free fabric with the highest consistent quality. 

The sheer beauty of the St Lucia collection, is always a popular fixture of the Four Families collection, Four new colours have been added to its palette, Flax, Mist, Stone and Shale.

The new shades are earthy in appearance and tie in well to the colour schemes of the modern day interior.

Screen fabrics are popular with consumers but not everyone likes the 'engineered' look.  St Lucia is a softer version of a traditional screen which teams perfectly with Four Families most popular fabric, Berkley.

Practical St Lucia lets natural light in while it softens glare and the sun's harshness. Grab the swatch and put it in front of the window, it really does a brilliant job at softening the light entering your home.

Keep an eye out for the new St Lucia swatches and info which are making their way to you. Anyone with the Four Families Fabric Library will automatically receive the new swatch. A 33% discount still applies for purchase of the Four Families Fabric Boxed Samples Collection.
