A bit from the founder - 'I started in the furnishing fabric trade over thirty five 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.'

After many years in the fabric industry, the-millshop-online was born with a concept to offer top quality fabrics at fantastic prices.   We began working directly with fabric mills and weavers in the UK and Europe, developing close relationships direct at the source.  Our company originally solely offered fabrics online, shipping them all over the world, before opening our doors to the public in our brick and mortar store in Northamptonshire in 2013.  We now operate both online and in store, with an ever growing team of friendly and passionate staff to deliver you the best fabric and service possible.
