“Buying fabric and looking for a bargain? Well then your prayers have been answered by the newest store to hit the Kramerville scene, The Fabric House. The brainchild of ex-banker Heather Lund-Truter, who noticed a gap in the market, the space stocks end-of-range remnants and cut-offs from top lines. Sold according to its weight or length, the fabrics are perfect for those seeking decor on a budget.”
Sandton Mag features the best in Jo’burg style, trends, living, debate and decor. Check out The Fabric House which is featured giving tips on trends in the industry.
i for one – is a dedicated and independent fashion and lifestyle blog created by freelance journalist, Justine Stafford, who decided that life was too short to spend it worrying about what effect the global recession would have on her lifestyle. Instead, she dedicated her (colour-coordinated) corner of cyberspace to all things bright and beautiful, and set out to try and document the state of the South African fashion nation, as it is, right now.
This is what i for one had to say about our Cape Town store:
‘For budget and style-savvy fabric shoppers, try Nigel Lardner-Burke’s new Fabric House – just across the street from The Palms on Woodstock Main Road for premium quality fabrics at ridiculously low prices.
The shop requires a bit of browsing, but fabrics are cleverly organised by colour and weave to help distract from the bargain-basement vibe. I’ve spotted top fashion and interior designers perusing the stacks of fab fabrics, so is def worth a visit’
