The Drapery is a real, bricks-and-mortar fabric shop in Adelaide, South Australia. We specialise in natural fabrics, particularly more sustainable fibres like linen, hemp, wool and organic cotton, plus independent designer patterns and high quality notions. Hand-crafting and sewing are an antidote to a throwaway society. So treat yourself to beautiful materials, that will last!
We started our store in April 2013 with the idea that sewists love to feel the drape, weight and texture of a fabric, and view its colours in person. However, many people can't just drop by our sunny little shopfront when the fabric urge strikes. That's why we created this online store, too. One of the loveliest things about having this business has been the growing community of like-minded sewists we have met, in person and via our online presence. In Adelaide, we'd love you to call in at:
308A Glen Osmond Rd
Fullarton SA 5063
Phone (08) 7324 5883
Wednesday - Friday 10am - 4pm, Saturday 12 noon - 4pm
We would like to acknowledge the Kaurna people, who are the traditional custodians of the land on which this shop stands. The Drapery acknowledges the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of this nation and we pay our respects to ancestors and Elders, past and present.
