FABERWOOD promotes new and innovative work by established and emerging contemporary fabric designers
At FABERWOOD we carefully curate our selection, seeking out the finest quality textiles from around the world. At the heart of what we do, is a desire to connect people with designers that will surprise and inspire them. Our emphasis is on the unconventional, modern graphical designs we love, not the mock vintage patterns of the mainstream.
FABERWOOD is in Sheffield, England, on the edge of the beautiful Peak District. Our stunning surroundings form the perfect backdrop to showcase the creativity of the designers we feature.

A Few Words From Fiona
My adventure into making my own clothes really took off back in 1991 when I was given my first 'proper' sewing machine, a New Home, that I still use today. Every weekend I'd be at my local market dreaming up projects and returning home with yards and yards of fabric! Studying and having a career in Graphic Design I have always been drawn to geometric prints and structured shapes. I was an Art Editor by day and sewist by night, everything in my head was all about design and putting things together.
The idea to start FABERWOOD came from my obsession with fabric and always looking for unique and exciting textiles. Fabric choice, for my projects, is something I would spend endless hours on online with so little choice locally. I want to showcase these amazing textiles in new and interesting ways and describe them so they come to life on screen! My family are joining me on this new adventure, fortunately everyone involved is up for the challenge!
