About Us

Our Story


We are a small, independent family run sewing & knitting emporium based in the heart of Cornwall.


Truro Fabrics started as a market stall in 1984 and has grown over the years into one of Britain’s largest independent fabric retailers.

Our store now has three departments; dressmaking fabrics (available here online), interiors and yarns & haberdashery.

We offer everything from textile craft supplies to high-end bridal fabrics.


As well as selling fabrics, wallpapers and paint our Interiors department also offers a made to measure service for curtains and soft furnishings.

Our team are all wonderfully creative people with their own knowledge and interests, varying from knit designers to print makers.

But of course we are all passionate about textiles.


Sustainability & the Environment




Promote slow fashion. Hand made clothes & DIY fashion have always been at the heart of Truro Fabrics.

Not only do we have everything you need to mend & make your own clothes. We're also going to teach you too.

Contact us to find out what workshops we're currently running.


Source more eco-friendly fabrics & yarns. We already have a growing collection of stock made from recycled and

organic materials. This is something we're always working on!


Cut down on waste. We've recently reduced our plastic packaging by 50% and have also introduced re purposed packaging solutions.


To do better. We're always looking for new ways to improve. If you have any suggestions, send them our way!
