Market leading testing processes
Every new design goes through a rigorous testing process that checks the materials meet the demands of the average home.
The UV machine subjects fabrics to five years' worth of UV exposure to make sure they won’t fade in the sun at your windows.
We also carry out meticulous environmental testing, subjecting fabrics to varying temperatures over a 72 hour total cycle to make sure our designs keep their shape and form at the window.
“Quality is key – it’s why I love working with Hillarys”
Abigail Ahern - Interior Designer
Our partners, Abigail Ahern, Louise Pearce from House Beautiful and Margo Selby have worked closely with us to develop exclusive collections. Find out why our high quality standards are so important to them.
If the fabrics don’t meet our standards, they don’t make it into our range. Only the best performing styles should be in your home. It’s as simple as that!
There’s real craftsmanship behind every product we make at Hillarys and our experienced team are dedicated to ensuring a quality finish and perfect fit.
Twist, tilt, raise and lower blind mechanisms are tested up to 2,000 times by our specialist equipment.
Blinds and curtains are given an opportunity to hang in our test area for 48 hours prior to assessment so that we can see how they would perform at your window.
