    It’s tartan and tweeds month at the online interior design store Fabricsandpapers.com which offers one of the best selection of tartan wallpaper and fabrics on the web. The latest additions to their tartan emporium reflect the increasing demand for variation and choice for this versatile fabric and come from their well-regarded suppliers including Casamance and Moon.Interior designers have been using tartans for years. It’s a great British classic, wonderfully unisex as well as cosy and traditional. Today’s modern interpretation now sees it come in many different colourways, including vibrant bolds such as bright purple and red, pinks and yellows as well as the classic blues and green.

    French design house Casamance has a glorious range of tartans, showing the international appeal of the Scottish classic with a contemporary twist. Its Mendibel range combines the warmth of wool with beautiful textures while its Mont Dolent styles with an appliqued stags head makes a striking statement for curtains and soft furnishings.

    Camengo part of the Casmance brand has revamped the classics and has given this traditional weave a new lease of life with a stunningrange of tartans now on offer.

    Moon’s heritage collection comprises dobby and jacquard woven traditional tartan and estate tweeds. By using their muted melange palette the designs and soft colours conjure up the feeling of the Scottish lowlands and highlands.
