What is the company Stitched all about?

Stitched.co.uk is a venture backed startup and has raised over £2m to date. They are transforming the way people buy made to measure curtains and blinds in the £1.5 bn UK market.  They have sold over 5,000 pairs of sustainably made curtains and blinds since we launched in 2018.  Stitched has partnerships with design-led furniture retailers Swoon and Made. The company only work with mills that produce natural and recycled fibres, with a core value of the business being to source fabrics as locally as possible to keep our carbon footprint down, once the fabric has been milled, they then work with a network of independent local curtain and blind makers across the country producing high quality made to measure curtains and blinds. Stitched also we do some funky stuff with 3D & AR to help customers visualise products before they've been made and also have an AR app that can automatically take your window measurements for you.
