Our Story

Our story began over 65 years ago when Julian Greibach, father to Francis and Charles, and grandfather to Joshua, opened his first curtain manufacturing site in Bury, Lancashire in 1968, producing Rectella Ready Mades.

The second and third generations of the family have continued to drive the business forward, building on its rich heritage and intrinsic family values, evolving it in to the multi fascia home furnishings retailer that it has become today.

Inspirational ideas, exceptional value and genuine quality transcend the Julian Charles brand and the exquisite designs and compositions within our collections. Attention to detail, affordable style and inspiring ideas are our lifeblood.

We hope you enjoy our collections as much as we have enjoyed bringing them to you.

What we stand for

Our mission is to be the Company that you turn to with confidence for home furnishings that are luxurious yet affordable and which will bring that special indulgence to your home.

What started as a small range of ready-made curtains has become a full range of home furnishing, bedding and curtain collections.

The differing experiences and expertise of the three generations of the family have driven the evolution of the business. Experiences of fine yarns and fabrics brought about our luxurious woven curtain collections, while a passion for seasonal trends and fashions directed our printed linens and accessories.

Over the past 70 years, we have evolved from a manufacturer of ready-made curtains to a multi-channel retailer with over 100 stores across the UK. We pour our passion for quality and detail in to everything we do. We rigorously test and benchmark our products against stringent quality checks to give you the peace of mind that you are buying from a trusted brand that cares about what it does.

A name synonymous with quality

We develop collections that we know you will love, from classic heritage to trend-led signature. We pride ourselves on being a brand that understands premium quality and delivers beyond your expectations.

There is a piece and place for everyone.

We hope you enjoy our collections as much as we have enjoyed bringing them to you.
