FABRIC OF LIFE
Established in 2003, Fabric of Life are proud to offer original handmade textiles that are finely crafted, distinctive and beautiful for use in interior design and fashion.
Each of our textiles reflects the cultural identity of their community through traditional motifs & stitches many of which have been developed over several 100 years to the contemporary styles we see today. Our textiles have been hand selected directly from the community, guaranteeing their quality, craftsmanship and authenticity. We have held many exhibitions and events to celebrate the skills of our artisans over the last 10 years.
Working as a textile conservator for 30 years I have developed a passion for the preservation of material culture. We aim to stock the best of contemporary textiles expressing the values and traditions of their maker’s cultural background. Many of our textiles have found homes in our State Art Galleries giving well deserved recognition to the makers.
Recently we have been working with our producers partners in several parts of the world to develop a range of embroidered and screen printed handmade cards. Our vibrant Fair Trade cards express and help sustain the rich culture of their makers and add unique colour and style when we want to send someone a special message.
