This timeless design is sometimes referred to as a broken ottoman weave structure, and is from the style of fabric that brought texture into the world of blinds. Berkley has an organic and less structured look.

A true classic: Berkley has been popular for well over four years.  Yarn dyed for depth, and using a spun yarn instead of the standard filament yarn, Berkley appeals to people with an eye for good design and has been featured in the most elegant interior design schemes working well in both modern and traditional homes.

New Release: Sheer Vision Blinds with fabric from the Louvolite Collection


Teamed with our new Vogue Pelmet, the new Sheer Vision blind is a stylish addition to our interior blinds product range.  Featuring the Vision range of Louvolite Fabrics in 8 designs.  Innovative Louvolite Vision fabric features two layers of translucent & opaque horizontal striped fabric

Louvolite Video

Click on Image at left to view video of operation. Easy to use, a single control is used to slide the opaque and translucent woven stripes past each other. The same operation is used to raise or lower the window blind to any height in the window with ease, in the same way the classic roller blind would.

The front layer moves independently of the back allowing the stripes to glide between each other creating an open and closed effect, with limitless light control.

Sliding the fabric into a closed 'opaque-opaque' position allows full privacy and an impressive block of beautiful fabric at your window, whilst the 'translucent-opaque' position creates a stunning striped statement.

Attached please find our price list for Sheer Vision Blinds and the Order Form.  Please add these to your Betta Price List.  This product is not available to order online at this time.  Please forward a completed Order Form via email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or fax to 07 5450 1568.

Available in Chain Control or Motorised operation. Click here to view the Louvolite Vision Catalogue

Did you know?

Blossom by Louvolite has a one way pattern, and the pattern is printed horizontally on the fabric roll, not vertically as pictured (below left) and as demonstrated on their fabric swatch. To get the look pictured the fabric is railroaded.

Consequently there is a limitation on the width of blinds in this fabric.  Please make a note of this where you keep the swatch to avoid customer disappointment if they choose this fabric for a wider window.  Panel Glides are popular for wider spaces.

Roller blind: Maximum drop 1800mm. Max. width 3000mm. 
Panel Glide: Maximum drop 1900mm *
Panels Only: Maximum Drop 1925mm *. 
* Both limits are without Classic or Mode battens.

Drop size can be increased if pattern direction is changed to horizontal rather than vertical pattern (see pic below right); in which case maximum width is 1960mm. Battens are not recommended for this fabric as this restricts sizes even further and can detract from the delicate look of the design.

Please Note: Fabrics that require pattern matching may require additional metres to pattern match. In these instances a surcharge could apply and a quote will be provided prior to manufacture. 




Pattern has a horizontal look when not railroaded.



Wishing a very Happy Mothers' Day to Mothers everywhere this coming Sunday.

We hope you are all pampered and have a lovely day.

Best wishes from all of us at Betta.
