Tsarina (blue)

Tsarina (blue)

Tsarina fabric was influenced by a story from my father about my Gt Aunt Kathleen who wrote down a story about the Tsar Nicolas II assassination. My Gt Aunt Katherine was living with her parents in Switzerland at the time, her father and my Gt Grandfather was a British diplomat. She came to help a Russian courtier from the entourage of Tsar Nicolas II. The story goes that the Courtier was with the Russian royal family just before their deaths and they were sitting on a train waiting to reach their destination.  Once they arrived all the Royal party managed to leave the train but when this courtier tried the train doors they were locked and she was left on the train and could not get off. The train continued on its journey and her life was saved. Somebody must have known something and did not want her to get involved or meet a similar fate as the Russian royal family. Somehow she managed to find her way to Switzerland and she stayed with my Gt Aunt Kathleen who helped her get back on her feet and start a new life.

How to buy my fabric

Stockists
We do have a list of stockists around the UK and Internationally who will be able to sell you fabrics and wallpapers direct.
Quite a few of them are interiors designers and they might not mention they sell interiors fabrics so you do need to email or ring them and they will be able to help you. 
Direct from Charlotte Gaisford
If you do not want to deal direct with a stockist it is possible to buy direct from Charlotte Gaisford just send us an email with your requirements. Because we sell mainly through the trade and internationally we do not make prices public on the website

How long before I get my fabric and wallpaper
All the fabric and wallpaper is printed to order, we do not hold any stock.
The fabric takes about 7 days to get back from the printers, we check it and then send it 24 hour courier to you or your curtain maker.
The wallpaper can take a little longer from 7 to 10 days, it depends how busy the printers are. The lead times can be longer if the printers are busy, this is usually in the Autumn.
