Welcome to the ClothFabricShop
For 25 years, artist and textile designer Julie Paterson has been creating fabrics inspired by the Australian landscape. Designed and printed by hand in regional New South Wales, ClothFabric is heavy weight upholstery linen, sustainably made to last.
You are in the right place for Australian customers to buy ClothFabric on the roll and pre-cut fabric by the piece.
On the roll
Right here online, at the ClothFabricShop, you can purchase ClothFabric’s most popular and enduring designs on the roll by the metre.
We don't keep stock of everything Julie ever printed, so if you're wanting something you don't see here - like a classic design in an old colourway - we do print special orders in a five metre minimum. Contact Julie directly to make an enquiry.
By the piece
Whether they are end rolls over a metre or smaller lengths, all remnants are sold by the piece. These might be pieces that toured in a show, or left over from a commission, or maybe a prototype or a discontinued design. Have a look at what's currently available by the piece.
Julie saves the even smaller scraps from landfill to adorn existing pieces or create handsome new things from scratch. Her curated ScrapCloth bundles are good for the planet and a pleasure to stitch with, and they are available on her Julie Paterson website.
When ClothFabric sample books retire, they keep on working. Julie has curated these squarish samples into packs of four - when you stitch them all together you get a generous panel of about 60 square cm.
These four packs are a great way to make something with multiple ClothFabric designs at an affordable cost. Julie will make more packs as stock becomes available.
Julie's other work
ClothFabric textile designs are very polished work, but they come from a raw and bold creative process. To purchase Julie's fabric prototypes or art works, head over to her stockroom and shop at juliepaterson.com.au. This site is also where you will find information about her exhibitions, collaborations and other projects.
ClothFabric is made by hand in Australia
ClothFabric is hand screenprinted in 20 metre runs using water-based commercial screen printing inks. The base cloth is hard wearing upholstery linen or hemp, heat treated with no fabric finishes, so it softens and fades naturally over time and with use.
That's why ClothFabric gets even handsomer with age.
To find out more about Julie's art and design practice, have a look at her Julie Paterson website.
We are doing some renos
Cloth has been around for 25 years now, and we've gone through a lot of reiterations and changes.
This site you are on now is the new ClothFabricShop, pitched at our retail customers so they can purchase online.
Right now, the old ClothFabric website is under construction. It will be up again soon, as a portfolio site featuring the complete ClothFabric back catalogue. Handy for inspiration and designed with our trade customers in mind.
If you have any queries - retail or trade - contact Julie directly.
