Welcome to our website
Hello from Dharug and Gundungurra land.
It's 30 years since I started my small fabric company, ClothFabric. Over all that time we have stuck to our core mission - hand-printing Australian inspired designs on high quality upholstery-weight base cloth made from natural fibres.
Offering retail and trade, ClothFabric is a small team engaged in small batch production. No agents, no reps - just me and Chrissie in my Blue Mountains studio, and my shy and talented printer Scott further out in regional NSW.
This website is where you can find what we make.
You are in the ClothFabric Shop
On this site you can buy our full range of designs and colourways currently available on the roll.
You can also shop for cut pieces or fat quarters, ScrapCloth pieces and our latest offering, swatch book pieces - hardworking swatches from our trade sample books. Stock up so you're all set to mindfully mend your favourite things and calmly slow-stitch your way to better mental health.
Keep scrolling down and you'll find a photo gallery that showcases some beautifully upholstered furniture, curtains, lampshades and stitching projects. You can explore the site and shop for fabric by clicking through on the gallery images or through the menu bar.
Please get in touch if you’ve got any questions. I’m here and I'm happy to help.
Still made by hand in Australia
ClothFabric is hand screenprinted in regional NSW in 20 metre runs using water-based commercial screen printing inks. The base cloth is hard wearing upholstery linen or hemp, heat treated with no fabric finishes, so it softens and fades naturally over time and with use.
That's why ClothFabric gets even handsomer with age.
To find out more about my philosophy and the art practice that informs my designs have a look at my JuliePaterson website.
