Machynlleth, UK sy20 8ax

At a young age, my mum Ann was taught to sew by my great Aunt Alice who was a Tailoress. When my dad Phil was made redundant in the early 80’s, and with a growing family of 4 children they both decided to start a market stall selling fabrics in our local market town of Llanidloes. With Ann offering sewing alterations and Phil attending all our local markets, the business started to grow. I remember during the summer holidays helping dad at the stall and earning some extra pocket money.

Phil & Ann began the Organic Textile Company around 2005. They became aware of the damage that happens in third world countries to people who grow non organic cotton and have to rely on unhealthy pesticides. By allowing the farmers to farm organically, they and their families could live a more healthy life that allows crop rotation and non-reliance on pesticide and fertilizer sellers.

Thanks to the internet, Phil was able to make contact with Genesh in Kerala who was our first supplier of Organic Cotton fabrics. Myself, my husband Mike and Phil and Ann went to India in 2010 and met Genesh, his family and some of his weavers. He still weaves our beautiful bespoke fabrics for us. 

As the business grew and the requests from our customers for wholesale increased we began sourcing organic cotton and bamboo fabrics from North India, Turkey and China. The haberdashery range grew too with Organic cotton threads from the Netherlands and from the USA. 

We now have a wonderful selection of Organic and sustainable fabrics and cotton. Bamboo fabric, linen, fleece, sweatshirt, jersey fabric, organic fabric of every kind. calico, dyed fabrics, threads, tapes and natural undyed fabrics. Great for arts and crafts, sewing and manufacturing for the trade looking for wholesale and for retail.
We supply to mums, dads, students, designers, manufacturers and shops.
Just as happy to supply a metre as a kilometre.

If you would like samples of our fabrics or any help and advice then please do get in touch or give us a call 01654 700 002
