    Hi,
    I was wondering if anybody can help me?
    I run an online store, selling Australian made clothing ( by us) using Australian made fabrics. Due to the success of this business, I am having to source more types of Australian made fabric, than first anticipated :)
    Does anybody know of companies, selling Aust. made fabrics? I am interested in any fabric for now!

    Thanks in anticipation,
    Jocelyn Serone

    Hi Jocelyn,

    We posted about this on Facebook, and a couple of people have jumped online to make suggestions. You can keep an eye on responses here.

    Hope you get some good tips.

    Cheers,
    Jayne

    I’m feeling particularly useless as I do know of one company but don’t recall their name. Last I heard they were buying new equipment and were located in South Yarra, Melbourne.

    Glad to hear you’re overrun with orders.

    Thanks for your interest, SuzsSpace- if you do remember the name, I would love to know!
    I have found quite a few companies through http://www.textilesource.com.au
    but when i have googled these names in, most don’t have websites or even email addresses!

    Appreciate everyone’s help- please keep the suggestions coming in. This one has me stumped:)

    I’ll do my best but I’ve been wracking my brains for my daughter for this info for six months.

    Hi Layah,

    For knits try Standard Universal – they are based in Botany, Sydney or if organic fabric takes your fancy, Certton are a good option.
    Wovens are much harder to find but there are still some mills in Australia – try searching on Ragtrader or in the yellow pages.

    Cheers,
    Sarah
