Craven Contracts expertise and passion for the supply of bespoke contract curtains, blinds and soft furnishing accessories

Craven Contracts Limited (CC) was established in 2000 by Chrissie Shillcock with little more than a phone book and a resolute commitment to succeed. The founding team’s combined experience in the fabric and contract industry turned an idea into a highly successful business managing contracts throughout the UK. Based in Chrissie’s home town of Pateley Bridge, North Yorkshire, CC recently expanded opening an office in Tring, Hertfordshire, a perfect location to add value to existing and potential clients in the South of the UK.

We have established, long-term working relationships with a selection of professional workrooms: “It is important that we share a common understanding of performance standards required for high quality manufacturing of our blinds, curtains and accessories. We use a wide range of fabric suppliers providing beautifully designed prints and luxury weaves, meeting the latest flame retardancy standards required for the contract market, including specialist specifications for use in all areas of care home and high dependency units, without compromising on design.”

Chrissie has developed her successful company to be flexible and responsive to the needs of the industry providing the highest quality British manufactured bespoke, curtains, blinds and soft furnishings accessories for the hospitality, and leisure market.

We work with Interior Designers, Architects, Property Developers and Refurbishment Managers to provide budget costings or exact quotations tailored to the requirements of the project. We can provide goods on a supply only basis or give a fully fitted service by one of our hand-picked team of experienced fitters. All are professionally trained, CSCS certified, DBS checked where required and fully qualified to fit specialist tracks. Experienced in all market sectors, understanding the products and providing comprehensive advice, measuring and fitting, they ensure a positive experience with an immaculate finish throughout the UK.”

CC also provide a dedicated bolt on soft furnishings team as part of your company brand. This solution is perfect for any contract business offering products or services related to new build and refurbishment projects. Chrissie says, “We can work on a project-by-project basis or as permanent members of a brand-immersed team. We have found that the flexibility this approach creates, provides an environment responsive to change, enabling clients to add expertise to their company’s skill set as and when required.”

In the case of a digital mood board, swatches of the chosen fabrics would be sent to you too.
