Warwick Fabrics was founded in 1966 by Tom Warwick. The business creates fabric designs for upholstery fabric and curtain drapery in its factory in the Melbourne in the suburb of Collingwood. The operation sprawls across buildings the warwick family has acquired along and across Sackville street.
Warwick Fabrics is all about quality rather than cheapness with a fresh and young design team that creates splendid bang on trend designs to keep the range fresh each year. Tom Warwick decide to set up Warwick Fabrics in England as well Australia in 1988. Which is where I started using Warwick fabrics in my upholstery business.
Colour codes are used to indicate the list price for the multitude of styles and grades of upholstery and curtain drapery fabrics so that a client or retailer like Rosebery Fabrics can easily work out the cost upholsterer a lounge suite or make some beautiful curtains. About one third of the cost of a lounge suite is in the cost of the fabric. At Rosebery fabrics we like to educate our customers about how good quality upholstery fabric resist wear and tear and most commercial clients are happy to be sold up to a higher grade commercial fabric as long as they get the objective information on performance.
