Ralston Fabrics is a small family owned online fabric company established in 2013. We do not have a shop, we operate from a warehouse and an office in Hampshire UK. All of our sales come from our online shops.

Because our overheads are a little bit lower, we offer our fabrics at better price. We do not have the costs of a retail shop to consider.

We specialise in Velvet, we sell a lot of it, in fact we send Velvet and other fabrics all over the world including Europe and the USA, Canada and Alaska.

So what Fabrics do we sell?

Cotton Dressmaking Velvet - our main business, currently offering in the region of 25 colours. Our own Truly Sumptuous range is expanding (currently 20 colours as of February ). We can offer consistency of colour and quality, which is currently a problem in the textile industry. Batches of fabric can vary in both colour and feel/quality.
