ClothSpot’s all about fabrics for clothes that are all about you. We’re tired of stores full of cheap clothes that aren’t designed to last more than a season (we know you know where we mean…) and other shops where neither the price tags nor the sizes fit. We don’t think that buying cheap clothes is necessarily good value for money – and that however much you pay, it can be hard to find something you really like.
We think that’s a shame – and amidst all that conformity and cost-cutting we’ve lost the high-street drapers. With them have gone a generation of skills, the habit of sewing for yourself and the excitement of daring to be a bit different.
Here at ClothSpot we want to be part of recovering all of that. We love bargains as much as anyone (check out our prices!) but we also like the idea of choosing to make something special – or timeless – or individual. We think there’s real satisfaction of investing your time in something unique – or even knocking something up just in time for a party…
We know there are plenty of you out there who can’t find a fabric shop on your local high street – and who are frustrated at what’s on offer in the average clothes shop. We’re here for you! We’d like to offer you something of the long-forgotten draper’s shop and remind you how exciting it can be to look at fabrics and imagine what you might do with them. We think that pictures of actual clothes made with our fabrics – or at least draped mannequins – are a step in the right direction – but that’s just the beginning.
We might be starting small but we have some big ideas and we hope you’ll be dropping by regularly to find out what’s happening.
