Do You Buy Fabric From Amazon, Alibaba & Third Party Sites?


Hello to all our lovely customers, first of all thank you for visiting our website and taking the time to read our blog.

The purpose of this post is to clarify some points around the Cheapfabrics brand. I am in fact beginning to feel like we are a well kept secret, an Aladdin's Cave but online I guess.

When we speak to our many customers, it comes as a surprise to them that we are actually a family based business.

We found that consumer shopping habits and behaviour changed at a high speed rate during the pandemic, and large organisations such as Amazon reaped profits from their electronic organisational facilities. versus Amazon, Alibaba & Third Party Sites

It is very easy to jump onto Amazon, Alibaba and other third party sites to buy your fabrics, so why is it better to purchase  fabrics  and  habardashery  directly from us, rather than them?

Whether you are shopping for upholstery or dressmaking fabrics, for designer clothing or modern furniture, we’ve got great options for you.

Here are some reasons for choosing Cheapfabrics when you are shopping for fabrics online:

  • We are a small family run business that has been in the textile trade for a span of just over 55 years now. We established ourselves on the online platform back in 2004 and consider ourselves fortunate to still be here to serve you all today. We believe that it is important to understand buying fabrics from a customer's perspective, and the  team is trained to think like a customer when processing and fulfilling orders.  Read more about us...

  • Our sample service is popular and the majority of fabrics do have this option, it safeguards any issues that may arise.
  • The ethos of our company is to maintain a strong communication channel via emailor a call with our customers to assure them that they can buy with confidence.
