Yet more fabrics...!

Our new Spanish supplier is very efficient, a couple of weeks from seeing their samples and they're here in the shop!  140/150 cm wide cotton prints and plains, between £10 & £13's per m!
The tiny blue/brown town & co-ordinating leaf prints are a particular favourite of mine!

Lots of New Fabrics!!!

Well, it never rains but it pours...!

In a fortnight, we've had Autumn fabrics come early and Asian fabrics come late.

Our first delivery was some Autumn fabrics, which are proving popular already.   Two colour ways, in a floral and stitched polyester knit, which is a great dress/skirt/jacket weight.  It's soft, but firm and in soft pink greys or bright colours.  95% polyester, 5% spandex, 155 cms wide and £14.00 per m.
The metallic fabrics are actually knits, made from 97% polyester, 3% spandex.  They are very soft and drapey, unlike their hard metallic appearence. Again 150 cms wide & £12.00 per m.

We then had a box arrive from Asia, containing our Japanese and Indonesian fabrics - double layer!

The Japanese fabrics are cotton prints, including ripple prints, which are a bit like firm seersucker (pineapples and hibiscus prints) and a linen mix.

The second layer was our Batiks from Bali which were delayed in production, due to weather in Indonesia.  When you see the hand production, in these beautiful fabrics, you can see why they are very weather reliant.

But it was definitely worth the wait!!!  The designs and colours are stunning! Here's a few of them...
