Instagram Stories-The Cloth House




The Cloth House London 


The Cloth House at 47 and 98 Berwick Street
 has become a London Institution for designers and crafters alike.
 Set up in 1984, I first paid them a visit whilst
 at University and hadn't been back until this Summer.

Both shops are a veritable Alladin's Cave of all things 'cloth,' 
 with their buyers travelling the world to source
 individual and unique collections. The company works as closely
 as possible with local traders and craftsmen 
to keep traditional skills alive. 
They stock the largest variety of jersey 
and felt in the UK, as well as lace,
 trimmings, and vintage buttons to name but a few.

If you can't make it to London to see them for yourself,
 check their website for mail order and contact details
