Damers Blinds has been making quality, made-to-measure blinds, awnings, canopies and materials in Weymouth since 1884.
Potter along the Weymouth seafront and the traces of this small family business with a big history can be seen with many old traditional awnings still protecting the little independent shops from the elements.
Years ago, Damers were also responsible for making beach huts during the Victorian heyday of seaside trips, when bathing in salty water and taking lungfuls of sea air started being renowned as the antidotes to city stress. The company were also known to make the odd sailcloth or two.
In fact, Damers originally were responsible for all the shop awnings and beachside material paraphernalia.
Damers Blinds has seen many changes over its almost 140-year history, but its commitment to producing the finest quality window treatments and exceptional customer service has never changed.
Leanne and Dominic Cale took over Damers Blinds 17 years ago. With a background in renovations and interiors, the business seemed the next logical step, combining their skills with a passion for detail and a flair for style.
Leanne said: “It’s really nice to think we have a big history but are quite small. We make it simple to add style to your home. Whether your tastes are traditional, vintage or modern, our expansive assortment of blinds and materials provides endless possibilities for self-expression. Our unique products are of exceptional quality and value.
“We have a long and loyal following and get lots of repeat business and recommendations. And we pride ourselves on customer service.
“We give our customer’s peace of mind. While online products might cost less, we offer high quality products with a warranty and of course, we have good aftercare and are here if any issues should arise.”
She added: “We know everything there is to know about window areas.
“With the cost of living, we have plenty of advice on the best window treatments to keep warm.”
