Purchase Swatches or Sample Books
purchase Fabric for Sampling - limited stock
First Appointment is to ascertain your needs and show you the Collection. To do this please first download, fill in and email a Purchase Order Request Form prior to our meeting.
It allows us to tailor the presentation to your needs plus the PO Request Form acts as your "wish-list" (regarding MOQs, fabric blends etc) plus help me consider if there are other fabrics I'm working on that may be appropriate to show - Im working on exciting new developments in sustainable textiles from around the world all the time so they may not be on the website as yet.
Moving forward this PO Form is how we keep our communication in one place to discuss the nuances of the fabric specs, pricing etc.
In the PO you can include notes to discuss re specific swatches, questions on ordering a few metres of fabric from a few different textiles for Sampling, etc etc.
As a wholesaler with very special relationships with our Mills I can often perform miracles :)
We will also use the PO form to commence Print Consulting if you wish to print.
We are in Sydney, Australian Eastern Standard time.
WHOLESALE FABRIC & SERVICE TIMEFRAMES.
Timeframes for sending Swatches, sample Books and fabric samples is approx 2-6 weeks depending on availability - some Books may need to be made and shipped, or I may need to wait for a full production run to secure sample fabrics (depends on the order MOQ) ie. could be faster but allow at least 30 days.
- Sample runs (for Low MOQs) you will usually receive within 30-90 days from STSC or the Mill after receiving 100% payment.
- Production runs (large MOQs (7-60 days) from Mill.
Usual process includes the Mill receiving a 30%-100% deposit. In some instances we require the Mill to send a Production Sample once they've finished the full production for final approval.
100% full payment plus shipping costs is required prior to its release. The Mills and STSC do not hold open accounts.
STSC have an amazing Shipping Agent and we do not use a client's Courier Account. It is enormously time consuming and so far unsuccessful to allow clients to arrange shipping due to a variety of courier security restrictions. You can get a comparative quote, but I guarantee my Agent is faster and the best. Prior to shipping it is your responsibility to contact an Importing company or our freight company to learn of the Import duty, taxes etc that you will pay once it has arrived.
WE ARE ALL LEARNING....
Given the enormous amount of variables brought about by dealing with hundreds of fabrics and multiple Mills, there will always be adjustments - but as we grow the industry we hope to have more and more fabrics available and stories to share of our farming and artisan communities, Mills, makers, dyers and eco-printers who are all the backbone of this push to support the health of the environment and the people, and the reason why I support them and love working with them.
RESEARCH & SLOW FASHION LEAD TIMES.
I’ve designed the STSC website to give designers quick access and the benefit of learning from my years of information that I’ve discovered over the years about sustainable, biodegradable, circular fashion textiles?
I feel it’s important to share so designers can use it as a resource to learn as much as possible, and as quickly as possible, to help brands pivot fast as we move into this exciting new direction of sustainable and circular fashion and to help capture the growing number of customers asking for action.
I’ve amassed a huge range of fabrics over the last two & a half years by working closely with wholesale fabric Mills and Artisan groups to be able to offer a range of several hundred different fabrics to suit various price points and target markets and to offer both large and low MOQs.
Textiles are made to order to minimise waste, therefore customers will need to factor in an estimated lead time of at least two months for delivery, with progress updates given throughout.
We focus exclusively on processes with a minimum of negative environmental footprint.
STSC and our suppliers in Austria, India, Indonesia and Japan work to ensure their business and production practices are of the highest ethical and environmental standards, and we are proud to work with an exceptional team who care as much about our communities and the planet as we do.
