      I haven't been able to find any instructions on how to attempt to make them yourself but would be interested to hear if you do.....

        I have to say that I do like these, and they look superbly made. Trouble is, will they put us out of business?
        Kind regards

          Hopefully not! I guess they are an alternative to romans but would not compete with the softer effect of curtains ?

          ....also they are quite expensive.

            This site has a PDF with an example quote.... http://www.katierapp.co.uk/fabriccov...%20-%20fcs.pdf these shutters are slightly different design to the Pig Style ones.

              Great idea, especially for funny shaped windows or where there's not stackback space and they do look lovely but I'm not sure we need worry about them putting us out of business at those prices!

                I think they are fab!

                I want to know who the fabrics are from, they are stunning!

                Any ideas?

                  I really love them too!
                  I think they look really contemporay. One of the shops that I work for do a roaring trade in plantation shutters too.

                    Yes a brilliant idea,so contemporary, but don't tell too many customers about them!!!They might all want them.

                      This company have started making MDF decorative shutters to order - Jali

                      They say they can make designs to order so I wonder if they would make plain ones to then cover with fabric?

                        Jali shutters

                        Hello Louise,

                        Wouldn't that kind of defeat the object? They make theirs to emulate eastern fretwork...

                          If you wanted some plain (not fretwork) shutters to cover with a customer's fabric then Jali might make them to order as they already make the fancy ones. The other "Fabric Shutter" company will not supply mail-order.

                            Hi

                            Can't get on the site for pig style shutters. Does anyone have a link that works? Fabric covered shutters are so expensive...

                              I've been thinking seriously about doing these, and have approached a joiner friend of mine to cut them for me in his workshop down the street. I don't think they'll be that difficult ... famous last words!!
