What is MOOD fabrics? And you are speaking of a new website - do they have an old one, and if so, what is the URL?

Sources for Fabrics / Textiles - shopping in person or online
Hey everyone, I'm pretty new to TFS but I love all of the information I've gained from it just in the past evening! I am the owner of a label, Newwich and we are set to launch Spring 2008. I've found all the fabrics I need but one, silk. Any ideas on manufacturers who sell repp striped silk ? Well look forward to some feedback here and look out for the launch of Newwich, we're taking a new approach to the silk tie.

Fabric Shops in London or Online
I am new to this so apologies if this is a pathetic question

I had a look around Berwick St, London but I couldn't find what I was looking for and I found the prices quite high

Are there any more places to look in London or online.

Thanks in advance...

There are supposed be cheaper fabric shops in shepherd's bush or you could try the bricklane area. I also found numerous fabric shops in Marylebone sort of around the Marylebone Lane area.....

FABRIC itself is not so expensive, the cost in storage, ship, and other points make the fabric expensive in the cloth shop, I think.

I used to buy fabric in market, in China.

Are you willing to purchase something overseas? There are some great fabric shops here in NYC.

Also look into Spandex house here in NYC. They cover all kinds of stretch fabric.

Goldhawk Road (Shepherd's Bush) is the cheapest place to go. The Cloth House is probably so expensive because of the rent they'd have to pay to be in soho.

Remember quality over quantity. Pay more. You don't want the patters/ design fading or colour draining in the wash.
The cloth house is good.
You'll have to look it up yourself because I can't remember the address. Its a shop just full of fabrics and buttons. Near one of the Beyond Retro stores. Fairly close to Oxford Street.
Their linens are fab. Hundreds of colours too.

two stores on berwick street. one at the top end near oxford street, one at the bottom end near porno alley
top store sells more natural fabrics and woolen suiting
bottom store sells the interesting stuff and stuff like jersey and neoprene etc

can't remember if borovicks sell jersey
or try A1 fabrics in shephards bush (goldhawk lane station, hammersmith and city)
and most of the other shops along there have jersey downstairs too
