About Us

I started in the furnishing fabric trade over thirty years ago, originally working for Harris Fabrics who specialised in velvets  and tapestries. I later moved to ‘one of the very top end’ designer fabric companies called Warner fabrics. Harris is now part of the designer stable of top end fabric companies including Zoffany, Sandersons, Morris & Co and Harlequin. Warner fabrics merged with Zimmer+Rhodes in 2006.

We now spend much of our time dealing direct with the fabric mills and weavers both in the UK, Europe and worldwide.  We track down top quality designer fabrics at fantastic prices and pass those savings directly on to you, the customer cutting out the middle man. We also have our own fabric designer now producing both modern and classical designs with a contemporary feel. Working closely with digital printers we are able to experiment with previously unatainable fabrics and designs and our own portfolio is growing on a weekly basis allowing us to bring you some exclusivity.

Our aim to be different, selectively sourcing unique and different fabrics and products. We particularly specialize in designer fabrics for curtains and upholstery. Of course, we will sell some other items that you may recognize, after all we are in business and need to pay bills but please bookmark our page to keep up to date with what’s new and different. 

We now also have a retail shop where you can come and see the fabrics in our fabric warehouse. We offer a personal and friendly customer service and free tea and coffee. At around 100,000 metres in stock we now have one of the largest stock of fabrics in the country and a lot of them never make it onto the website which are sold at even better value.

Being able to source great fabrics at great prices is only half the story, offering great customer service is the other half and is paramount to our business. We passionately believe that the customer is entitled to expect a minimum level of service, seldomly found these days and our personal minimum is very high. Remember we are also a customer to other businesses so we know how we like to be treated. Occasionally things can go wrong, after all we are human, but we will endeavour to resolve all queries satisfactorily.

We have tried to make the website easy to navigate and uncluttered as possible. We have also tried to avoid any small print without surprises. Of course there are some terms of trading that we have to share with you but they are clear and concise and not intended to create a trap. This is only our opinion so please let us know if you think that there are any improvements that could be made

In the meantime grab a coffee and spend twenty minutes browsing the website and hopefully one of our fabulous fabrics will take your fancy, remember you can always ask for some samples to be sent to you.

We look forward to hearing from you.  Click here if you wish to email
