Rosebery Fabrics - About Us.

About Us


In 2016, I initiated Rosebery Fabrics by acquiring a wholesale canvas business that possessed excellent stock but lacked an online presence. To gauge product popularity and identify fast-selling items, I initially ventured into selling the stock on eBay. From the outset, the standout performer was Sunbrella acrylic canvas—a high-performance fabric widely utilized for outdoor awnings, marine/boating Bimini covers, and outdoor cushions.

As our online presence grew, we expanded to offer upholstery Marine vinyl, a sought-after product from the physical shop we were renting at the time. Delving into the origins of the products in the shop, I traced back suppliers to assess ongoing availability and pricing. Feedback from walk-in customers highlighted the challenge of finding comparable high-performance canvases and materials elsewhere.

Motivated by this demand, I established Rosebery Fabrics as a company and developed a website to facilitate global sales. Today, Rosebery Fabrics proudly offers a diverse range of indoor and outdoor upholstery fabrics, Australian-made canvas, Sunbrella canvas fabrics, commercial marine upholstery vinyl, and high-end designer fabrics to customers worldwide.

I had a few questions regarding the care required for the Sunbrella Burgundy fabric I have and the 10 year warranty on the fabric. I wasn't sure how to best care for my Bimini that uses the same Fabric. We spoke for a few seconds with that online chat app. I really don’t like those. However, Lee immediately called me to have a chat. I can’t even begin to explain what that means vs. typing War and Peace vs. a much more professional and personalised call. Lee was very friendly, professional, articulate and very honest and upfront. Providing me with relevant logical advice. No catches. That works for me every time. Why wouldn’t it? Bottom line. I have zero hesitation dealing with these guys going forward. Trust is earn’t, not freely given. I have no doubt Lee (and his team) will offer the same level of professional personal care that he offered me.

I called into Rosebery Fabrics yesterday on a whim, looking for a particular Warwick fabric to recover some chairs. The item wasn't in stock but the friendly people at Rosebery Fabrics placed an order for me and arranged to have it delivered straight to my home - super helpful. I also found a gorgeous fabric in stock and can't wait to make some fabulous cushions. Next time I'm in the neighbourhood, I'll be calling in to getsome more fabric. Highly recommend a visit if you're looking for high quality fabrics and great customer service!

Short review: Lee is competitively priced, a consummate professional, excellent in communicating, and offers an incredible turnaround time.Long review: I initially came across Rosebery Fabrics when I was looking to have a vintage chaise lounge recovered, and I could not possibly be more pleased nor any happier with the product Lee produced.I turned up to Lee's shop in Surry Hills, showed him a photo of my lounge and a general idea of what I wanted. He met every level of criteria that I needed when looking for an upholsterer, someone who is diligent about their craft, knowledgeable about fabrics and suppliers, and who can consult based on the client's preferences and personality.With his guidance, I had an abundance of fabric samples to choose from, he communicated with me throughout the process, and turned around a pretty complex piece in record time. I'm really happy and I love my lounge to bits
