deadstock fabric

From time to time I am able to source beautiful deadstock fabric direct from mills in Northern Ireland.

Deadstock fabric is surplus fabric originally woven for the garment industry. It may have writing on the selvedge or occasionally small flaws. These will always been brought to your attention in any listings. In most occasions it is in perfect condition.

Gorgeous high quality Irish linens made for designers world wide and superb waxed cottons made for a rather famous British designer of outdoor wear…
