What is Designer Fabric?


You may recall having read the phrase “designer fabric” in the fabric descriptions at our online fabric store or in our blogs. Have you ever wondered exactly what we are referring to with that phrase?

For us designer fabric conveys two meanings. First of all, we usually qualify those fabrics which come from premier fabric companies as designer fabrics. Novelty print fabrics from such companies as Alexander Henry, Robert Kaufman, Timeless Treasures, Shamash and Sons, Michael Miller and others are truly designer fabrics of excellent quality.

Second, we also use the phrase “designer fabric” to describe fabrics that are attributed to specific designers. Some of the designers that are represented at our online fabric store are Dan Morris, Lloyds and Barton and Patrick Lose for Timeless Treasures, E.M. Hordyszynski for Michael Miller and Mary Engelbreit for Cranston. If there is a particular designer you are interested in, just type in their name in the search box and select “All words” in the search type box.

Here are a few of our fabrics from specific designers:
