After a fascinating C20 Society guided tour of five of the new Elizabeth Line stations, this week we look at moquette (French for 'carpet'), the fabric which covers thousands of London bus and Tube train seats. Many of the designs which are sat upon every day are by women, including the new Elizabeth Line moquette which was created by Wallace Sewell. It is "a progression of the original design on the Liverpool Street to Shenfield line...[and] adds more pinstripe details, as a nod to the suits in the City of London and creating a sense of speed as the line travels from east to west."
