We are interested in what fabric can bring to life. This journal is a celebration of the lifestyle, culture and design that influences what we do.
What’s your favourite colour? Are you intending to repaint your walls this summer or maybe you want to change up the colour palette of your living spaces. If you are stuck for a colour idea then that’s where colour forecasters can help inspire you.
Have you ever wondered what our fabrics would look like on a piece of furniture or as a curtain? Do you struggle to imagine it? We call this the imagination gap.
To help bridge this gap, we at James Dunlop Group (JD Group), have invested in creating high quality digital copies of our physical fabrics. Capturing every thread and fibre so that we are able to create and provide you with photorealistic digital imagery across an extensive range of fabric designs and colourways, through 3D rendering.

Material Bank is the world's largest marketplace in the architecture and interior design industry, providing the fastest and most powerful way to discover and sample materials including fabrics, tiles, paint and flooring for the North American market.
When it comes to commercial design, architects and interior designers juggle several project variables when selecting and specifying soft furnishings. Key considerations to balance are style, performance, usability, logistics and budget. The US market, like any, has extremely high standards and it can be difficult to maintain the balance of quality and purpose driven fabrics, at a cost-effective rate.
