20th Century Cloth

About

20th Century Cloth design and print our own exclusive range of mid-century inspired fabrics. We stock a range of vintage inspired dress weight fabrics as well as cosmetic and wash bags made from our fabrics and have recently launched a brand new collection of interior fabrics and home accessories.
Having a genuine passion for mid-century style, and a background designing printed textiles for leading UK high street brands, it seemed a natural progression to launch my own business creating exclusive vintage inspired fabrics.
I am equally passionate about British made products as I am about mid-century style. Having witnessed first hand the demise of the UK textile industry I have made the firm decision to support UK manufacturing.
Our products are all manufactured here using UK sourced components and my fabrics are all designed in London and printed in the UK.
