Capsicum - Hand woven and embroidered curtain and drape fabrics from India
For over thirty years, Capsicum has worked with India's handloom weavers to source the finest of fabrics directly from India. If you are looking for custom-made curtains, Capsicum is a specialist in this art. Most of the Capsicum fabrics available in the store can be made into curtains or blinds.
The Capsicum store, located in the heart of Amsterdam's vibrant historic centre, has a great variety of fine fabrics to choose from, the following is a small selection:
Autumn Range - an ottoman (rib) in two-tone. This fabric is ideal when a heavy drape is required, and comes in a range of warm colours.
If something lighter is required, you might try Dupion Silk, which is woven from yarn spun from a twin or dupionne cocoon, creating its characteristic irregularity. Also available in a range of colours.
The Batik Range, involves a technique where wax is applied to certain areas of the fabric, following which the fabric is dipped in a colour bath. The area covered by the wax absorbs no dye, thus creating the unique pattern.
The stunning Crewel Range of fabrics uses a traditional embroidery technique of wool on cotton or linen, all done by hand in Kashmir. It comprises multi-coloured wool on a natural cotton base. A wonderful enhancement to any room.
Ready-made curtains are also available, such as the DOT Range - made with multi-coloured dots of embroidered wool onto 100% cotton organdie.
Capsicum invites you to visit the shop and explore the delights of quality hand-woven fabrics. The expert staff will be happy to assist and provide any guidance you require.
