TECHNIQUES FROM THE PAST, TEXTILES FOR THE FUTURE
No Chintz offers a beautiful and diverse range of in-house designed textiles from plains to stripes, textures to Ikats which can be teamed with trims from our exclusive range. Suitable for a variety of interior applications, our fabrics are woven with natural fibres and we use only AZO free vat dyes of the highest quality. This ensures good colour fastness in a machine wash of up to 40 degrees centigrade.
The majority of our fabrics are produced in Kerala, India where the humid climate conditions give a particular tautness and strength to the yarn, setting it apart from cotton produced in other areas of the country.
Our design and business philosophy is as true today as it was 30 years ago – use mills that are dedicated to the care of their people and future generations with a commitment to responsible environmental practices.
A BRIEF HISTORY
No Chintz was started in 1994 by Chrissie Jeffery, the creative force behind Stitches Soft Furnishings, a wholesale workroom for designers and architects only. The first store was opened in response to a demand by the general public and the business expanded rapidly, prompting the opening of a second shop five years later. No Chintz now has four stores, three located in Sydney (Mosman, Willoughby and Woollahra) and one in Thirroul on the NSW South Coast.
Every successful business knows they are nothing without experienced and loyal staff. No Chintz prides itself on having dedicated staff members who enjoy their work. Many hold tertiary degrees in either textiles or design, in addition to their years in soft furnishings retail, and understand the importance of design and fabric advice appropriate to the individual. We believe every job is as important as the last.
We know every fabric house and fabric designer in the world and can source any fabric for our clients. Our linens are all sourced in Europe and our stock printed fabrics from local designers. We also offer a comprehensive selection of current leading designer fabrics, such as Designers Guild and Dominique Kieffer. In addition, we have many fabrics woven to our own designs by a small, family-owned mill in the south of India.
Our Soft Furnishings
We stock a range of individual and small production runs of interesting soft furnishings, many of which have been designed for us. Additionally, we have great contacts in making lampshades and quilted fabrics. Talk to our staff if you have a particular soft furnishings dilema.
