Our Story

The Fabric Store is a destination point for anyone looking for top quality designer dress fabrics and New Zealand merino products. With a strong focus on natural fibres, our range is diverse and includes a great selection of quality basics such as silk chiffons, georgettes, woollen suiting’s, coatings, cottons, linens and satins as well as specialty pieces like New Zealand merino knits, leather hides and more.

Sourcing from both local and international designers as well as sampling lengths from manufacturing runs means that stock is continually changing and is peppered with treasures that you may see one day but will be gone the next.

The Fabric Store was first established in 1995 in New Zealand as Global Fabrics with flagship stores in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin. The first Australian store opened in Surry Hills, Sydney in 2008 followed by stores in Fitzroy, Melbourne and Fortitude Valley, Brisbane in 2010 and 2011 respectively. Our flagship U.S. store opened in West Hollywood, Los Angeles in 2013.
