The second wrap in our double-weave Metro Series is Piccadilly Line. With inspiration taken from the textiles that make up the fabric of our lives as we make our way around in this great city. From bus seats to tube seats in London, like many great cities around the world, timeless classic designs that transcend any one era are part of our daily journeys. We wanted to pay tribute and shine a light on such an everyday textile design with this next series of wraps, that at once speak to us of both home and adventure, comfort and durability.
In its first iteration in 1901 the Piccadilly Line formed part of the Great Northern, Piccadilly, & Bromley Railway (GNP&BR). Coloured dark blue on the London Underground map, it is the second longest line on the network with 25 of its 53 stations served being underground.
Piccadilly Line is comprised of beautiful double-weave navy, sky and blue jeans bourette silk, sat upon honey and white Egyptian cotton. With washing, wearing and breaking in it will be soft and drapey, yet have a nice amount of grip when wrapping due to the nature of the weave design.
Piccadilly Line is 84% Egyptian cotton, and 16% bourette silk.
Our Metro Series wraps weigh approximately 320 g/m².
