But why Julian Charles?

Family

Our story began over 65 years ago when our father and my grandfather, Julian Greibach, identified a growing demand in the UK for ready-made curtains. He realised his vision through the creation of Rectella Ready Mades and opened his first manufacturing site in Bury, Lancashire in 1968. With a thirst and passion to further develop the business, the Company began to introduce fine bed linens and luxurious made to measure curtains, to meet the increasing sophistications of consumer demand.

The second and third generations of the family have continued to drive the business forward, evolving it in to the destination home furnishings retailer that it has become today.

Our heritage transcends through the Julian Charles brand and the exquisite designs and compositions within our collections. Attention to detail, luxurious style and quality are our lifeblood. From the smallest embellishment to the boldest print, every range has been designed with pride, passion and each of our customers in mind. We care as much as you do about adorning your home with fabrics, patterns and textures that epitomise your personal style.

Almost 70 years ago, our founder, Julian Greibach, identified a demand in the UK for ready-made curtains. He realised his vision through the creation of Rectella Ready Mades and in 1968 opened his first manufacturing site in Lancashire. The Company grew rapidly and introduced fine bed linens and luxurious made to measure curtains to its range.

Julian’s two sons, Francis and Charles, and his grandson, Joshua, have continued to drive the business forward, evolving it in to the destination home furnishings retailer that it has become today, led by its flagship heritage brand, Julian Charles.

The Julian Charles brand represents our heritage and what we stand for. It comprises collections of exquisite designs made from beautiful compositions. This is why we chose to launch our new online store under the name Julian Charles.

On the new site, you will find products from our Rectella and Julian Charles collections; a range picked and presented to you in the same carefully crafted way that we have been producing beautiful linens and soft furnishings for three generations.

Charles, Francis & Joshua
