FABRICS – CAPE TOWN
It is said that many great ideas are thought of at altitude! And so it was, with many climbs, on the slopes of Table Mountain and the Constantiaberg, that Wolfe Street Fabrics was conceived. Many of its current strategies are still thought of during these long walks on the beautiful mountains surrounding Cape Town.
The founder owners had bought a small decorating business in Cape Town in 1991 and a few years later started purchasing fabric directly from a mill in South Africa and dupion silk from India. Other decorators started to approach them for fabric and so Wolfe Street Fabrics was born, strategized high up on the mountain.
Wolfe Street is a quaint street in a conservation area of Cape Town, known as Wynberg Village, and has over the years become an interior decorating destination. Many well known decorating companies have shops and showrooms in the immediate vicinity. What better name for our fledgling company than to call it after the street where it first opened its doors.
Tasteful and quality curtaining and upholstery fabrics are carefully selected, from suppliers across the world as well as local mills and printers. These interior fabrics are put together into exclusive collections of curtaining and upholstery fabrics to suit all styles of interior decor. Elements of varied texture, design and price point can be selected to create ones own timeless interior space. These interior fabrics are marketed under in-house brands, Wolfe Street Fabrics and Wolfe Street Alternatives.
Wolfe Street Fabrics also represents some international interior fabric houses, one being KA International, a global textile company which has grown exponentially and supplies a large variety of quality curtaining and upholstery fabrics.
Other fabric houses which Wolfe Street Fabrics also represents are Swaffer, Tru Textiles and Pavilion, suppliers of high quality decorative furnishing fabrics from the UK. A variety of interior fabrics from 100% pure linen, silk and cotton to combinations with man-made fibres offer interior designers the most up to date collections of exclusive interior fabrics to choose from.
Wolfe Street Fabrics has a showroom in Cape Town and is represented by interior fabric agents in Johannesburg, Durban and Port Elizabeth where sampling of both curtaining and upholstery fabrics can be viewed in showrooms offering the best expert advice.
