RECENTLY ADDED TO THE SHOP

THE CLOTH FOX IS A FABRIC SHOP WITH A DIFFERENCE

Established in 2019, The Cloth Fox is located in the heart of the New Forest in Lymington.   

At our St Thomas Street studio we design and hand-make our limited edition

Cloth Fox Clothing.

Cloth Fox Clothing is ethical and sustainable, using a mix of deadstock, vintage and new textiles, so you know when you leave the shop, you’ll be wearing something truly individual.

 

Ready to wear or made to order - we don’t mass produce or sell our clothing designs to anyone else.

 

We stock a carefully curated selection of homewares, dressmaking fabrics and textiles from around the world. Over 75% of our fabric stock is OekoTex or GOTS Certified. We source from small independent makers.

We also offer e-gift cards, you can purchase from £10 to £500 to send to your favourite fashonista to redeem online or in store - just click this link

Support independent retailers

Everybody loves a bargain - but it comes at a price - large retailers can buy in bulk, and it's highly likely that they are getting their goods manufactured where there is no living wage. Buying in bulk can also create lots of waste, especially textile waste.

Every year 92 million tonnes of textile waste is produced globally.

 

 Whilst there's a huge focus on sustainable sourcing (and rightly so), there is less focus on ethical sourcing - this also means making sure your goods are produced by a worker that has workplace rights, one that is paid a living wage, one that is not being exploited.

You can start your sustainable and ethical shopping journey by shopping with small independent businesses, like ours, that either design and handmake here in the UK, or sustainably and ethically source goods.

Very chic shop with a lovely vibe. Loved the unusual fabrics, such beautiful colours. Very clever lady making those gorgeous jackets.

Motivating & uplifting! Polite, genuinely friendly & helpful. Felt most welcome thanks … will be returning !

I bought a lovely vintage kimono jacket. It was a really good price and it feels so special as it is a 'one off'. The fabrics feel really luxurious and are reasonably priced. 

 

Its all about the growth of an individual business, helping many others along the way – for instance our Jaipur ladies who are now fully employed and the knock on effect of that down to women who – like me – for instance, cannot find anything in today’s young market to wear that doesn’t make them look like the proverbial mutton!!  Your clothing range enables everyone to feel ‘special’ in their custom made goods and have the knowledge that they aren’t going to see every other person in the same item.  You’ve definitely tapped into today’s market of sustainable, durable and ‘different’ markets!

 

 

A great shop with an eclectic collection of beautiful textiles at very reasonable prices

Your shop was just a joyful place to be! Justine was delightful and fully engaged with me in my love of fabrics. I can't wait to visit again.

What a lovely, lovely shop! Full of colour and texture and the best selection of dressmaking fabrics. Thank you!
