Can I buy less than a metre of fabric?
We sell our fabric in one metre increments, so one metre or two metres etc. If you want something in between, contact Julie directly.
Have a look at what we have by the piece - many of our cut pieces are under a metre.
Can I buy yardage of a ClothFabric design or colourway that's not here on the website?
Yes, we can do special orders and special colours or different weights of basecloth by arrangement with a 5 metre minimum.
Contact Julie directly to enquire about anything you are after.
Can I get a swatch?
Yes, you most certainly can.
Contact Julie directly to request a swatch.
What are the fabric care instructions?
We prefer to machine wash our fabric in tepid water with a mild detergent. The printed area will wear in with use and develop a lovely patina over time. The more you wash, the more it wears.
Alternatively, you can dry-clean and treat our fabric with a stain repellant finish, if you prefer. This will keep it sharper looking, but puts chemicals into the environment.
Can I make clothing out of ClothFabric?
Julie has been making clothes from her fabrics since day one. The heavyweight linen is just the thing for sailor pants or a cooler season skirt.
Julie's written a book, hasn't she?
Yes, she has.
ClothBound tracks the development of Julie Paterson's practice and process, all the way from her first sketches books through to resolved designs and collections.
In this book Julie shares the stories of her designs, champions the imperfect and offers up a modest philosophy of sorts.
Right now, you can buy ClothBound on the Julie Paterson website, but soon you'll also be able to get it right here.
