Reopening for a limited period from 3rd February. 

February hours Wednesday-Saturday from 10am


We have always had a passion for beautiful fabric. From curtaining, upholstery and high fashion textiles, to interior design and costume design, quilting fabrics, knitting and art, the use of fabric has been at the forefront of our personal and professional lives.

It has always been our dream to offer the widest possible range of quality fabrics – including many unique and exotic examples – to home decorators and hobbyists in New Zealand, and to use our experience to help improve your living environment in a more personal and creatively satisfying way.

Through the many contacts we have built up in the national and international fabric supply trade, we are able to source some truly

wonderful fabrics at often-unbelievable prices. This does not mean that we sell cheap fabrics or pallets of random stock. Each piece of fabric is individually selected according to its quality, mostly direct from European mills. It may be excess to the maker’s requirements, a returned order, the closing down of a plant or whatever – someone else’s misfortune becomes your good luck!

But it’s not just our ability to source top quality fabrics, it’s also being able to help you through the process of building a “look” through colour, texture, and style, to turn your basic ideas into a personal design statement. We want you to be able to relax in the process and, if you need a little more help to turn your dream into reality, we have a team of consultants and tradespeople standing by.

Let us share our experience with you, to inspire you and help you realise your vision, with beautiful quality fabrics that will make your next project truly unique and personal.

" Great shop. It stocks very beautiful, high quality fabrics at incredible discounts. And, the staff are knowledgeable, professional and extremely helpful. I live way out of Wellington and they have bent over backwards to help me select the right fabric. Highly recommended."
