Our diverse collections within the James Dunlop Textiles catalogue each have their own unique character and style.
Outdoor furniture and textiles have become indistinguishable from indoor equivalents as new technologies allow different yarns, constructions and techniques to be beautifully resolved in a manner that will withstand the rigours of our unique environmental conditions.
Mokum’s latest release, Club Tropicalia, responds to the global trend that sees soft interior aesthetics extending to the exterior. This growing design movement allows for the creation of outdoor living spaces that evoke a luxurious and comforting ambiance, encouraging us to eat, socialize and relax outside. The collection typifies the transitional boundary between indoor and out, residential and commercial with all designs having a soft residential handle and commercial high performance attributes.
Club Tropicalia continues Mokum’s foray into visual optimism, a concept whereby joy is cultivated in the colour, form and function of our visual environment. The range is a celebration of nature and colour with its saturated palette and hand painted flora and fauna, balanced by a playful stripe and two dimensional plain upholsteries. Our hero print is the lush Tropicalia, featuring our successful La Palma pattern, digitally printed onto solution dyed polyester. The hand painted artwork is from Mokum’s collaboration with Catherine Martin, originally featured within Majorelle, her Marrakesh inspired indoor collection.
Tailored comfort, effortless precision and sophisticated charm are the underpinnings of the new Dunleith collection by Grove Studio. Dunleith weaves modern cultural influences with an underlying appreciation of classic forms, conveying refinement, harmony and quality with understated elegance and beautiful honesty. The inspiration for Dunleith has been drawn from the natural environment. Classic and architectural elements found in everyday living take on a contemporary feel with colourways inspired by significant places and people along life’s journey.
The collection tributes the traditional Japanese concept of wabi sabi, a philosophy whereby beauty is not only found but celebrated in the imperfect, impermanent and incomplete.
The Artisan collection offers a rustic yet curated mix of luxury upholstery, drapery and accessory textiles, in a refined, earthen colour palette and encourages one to pull away from the digital screens and into the present moment through tactile experiences in the home. The collection speaks to the past, through embracing traditional textile techniques but is developed with a contemporary sensibility, in keeping with Mokum’s design ethos which is both luxurious and authentic.
“With this collection we sought to contemporise craftsmanship and showcase the imprint of timeless textile techniques. We worked with specialist weaving structures, luxury yarns and artisanal printing and finishing processes to create subtly complex textiles in a palette that feels both modern and nostalgic.” - Stephanie Moffitt, Design Director
The Classic Wool collection features Mackenzie, a timeless wool from the James Dunlop range that has been recoloured and rejuvenated with 11 new shades. Paired with two new designs, Jackson and Clarke, an oversized hounds tooth and a contemporary diamond design of a jacquard construction.
The three designs offer tactility through a luxurious handle reinforcing the ongoing desire of comfort and wellbeing within the home.
The emotion and form of Parker’s ceramics has been admired, embraced and reinterpreted utilizing cutting-edge textile technology. From the richness of colour to form, function and clean lines, John Parker’s art creates a mood and atmosphere found throughout this collection.
Anchored by a range of high quality plains, the prints, geometrics and highly textured constructions provide the Perspective collection with a distinction of being practical, while providing a uniqueness of design and visual quality that enhances room settings. Perspective’s combination of textural and reflective fabrics are simultaneously beautiful and functional, while the highly textured fabrics present layers of depth, both real and imagined.
A range of semi-sheer draperies, developed through print, weave and texture, the Serenity collection creates an environment, where you can take solace from the pressures of everyday life, taking pleasure in doing nothing, but contemplating and enjoying the beautiful haven of the home.
An eclectic collection of luxury textiles, trimmings and wallpapers, Majorelle is inspired by Catherine Martin’s recent foray into tropical flora and fauna whilst taking design influence from Orientalism and exotic faraway lands.
The collection references Jardin Majorelle, Yves Saint Laurent’s enchanting retreat designed by living legend Jacques Grange in Marrakesh, famed for its sophisticated and exotic interior design, brilliant blue exterior and magnificent gardens. The collection also pays homage to Catherine’s French heritage and love affair with French culture, design and interior architecture.
“Celebrating my love of mixing discordant textures and patterns, into extravagantly contrasting but nevertheless visually enticing combinations, I seek, in this collection, to find a style where being baroque is elegant and modern. Marrying animal print and embellished tropical designs and an exuberantly luxurious palette of fabrics, this is a collection that is meant to be both glamorous and playful.”
- Catherine Martin
‘Taking tea’ is not only a lifestyle, it is a sacred ritual observed all over the world. It ignores political divisions and broaches cultural boundaries; taking tea is the international language of ‘welcome to my home’. In Australia and New Zealand hosting visitors for tea in the front room harks from a colonial era that our inner city suburbs were built upon. This ritual continues in various forms throughout our diverse landscapes and is an inescapable part of the fabric of our lives.
The Tea House collection focuses on the intimate nature of ‘taking tea’. Large floral prints feature strong patterns and bold colours of tropical fauna, fresh herbs, cherry blossoms, and bird life, which sit alongside a sumptuous velvet making for a luxurious fabric collection.
Distilled in essence and freed from superfluous detail, the Pure collection focuses on simplicity in form and function. As an antidote to todays overloaded lifestyle, this collection inspires tranquillity through minimalist design, with a focus on layering beautiful plain textures.
The Pure collection features luxury plain textured upholstery and drapery designs to deliver diverse constructions in both natural and synthetic blends. This foundation of minimalist inspired weaves is paired with a single bold abstract, which has been carefully woven as our statement pattern.
With a nuanced palette of light and dark neutrals as well as soothing barely tinted pastels this collection offers pure and refined textiles for residential and commercial application.

The Avenues collection explores the timeless design of the colonial era and reinterprets this theme for contemporary homes. Hounds tooth, luxury linen, jacquard and woven yarns are not new but they are classic, enduring, resilient fabrics which are now reinterpreted to be beautiful to the eye and gracious to the touch. Contemporary interiors may be more open plan but the importance of quality and timeless design remains.
The Avenues is a collection of enduring fabrics with inherent quality, rediscovering the authenticity of classic design within the currency of modern trends.

The Alpine collection explores reconnection to nature and embraces inspiration drawn directly from the great outdoors. Volcanic landforms, domes, cones and lava create a vivid and dynamic landscape, influencing the surface designs of the collection. At a macro level, the alpine herb garden, a diversity of plants with delicate forms and rich colours inspired both pattern and scale in Alpine.
Tongariro is constantly scarred, scorched and beaten by the rapid weather moods of the region and this constant re-shaping of its landscape provides a wondrous colour palette to draw from. Let us take you on a journey of discovery, from the mountainous beech forests to the harsh volcanic landforms and rocky terrain, with a stunning selection of warming upholsteries, stormy draperies and small-scale designs.

Just the right amount; the essentials: Lagom. This single word encapsulates the essence of the Swedish way of life and the basis of their national psyche, ‘enough, sufficient, moderation, balance.’
With the Essentials collection by James Dunlop, this philosophy has been the seed of inspiration to produce a comprehensive collection that emanates simplicity and raw beauty.
Together, the six designs incorporate a little bit of everything; pattern and plain, weave and print, but all in moderation with something for everyone. The colour palette across this collection also reflects Lagom; primarily neutral with complimentary seasonal colours and a feature tourmaline blue.
The Essentials collection provides a well-balanced and fundamental offering of drapery and upholstery product; not too little, not too much, just right.
