These Deans traditional shop blinds installed at Lina Stores on Brewer Street in Soho are unusual in so much as they have very special graphics applied using our unique process. The striking peppermint green stripe on these traditional shop blinds had to be created in such a way that the logo was unaffected by the striped background and we were able, with this technique, to retain the bold black and white of Lina’s logo design. Our Deans Shop Blind has been a staple for over three centuries for its strength and integrity as well as its faithfulness to the original John Dean design of the 1890s. The awning features hardwood timbers to the awning box and lath with metal parts in traditional cast iron.
