From our customers
I have been a customer of Parkin Fabrics since I setup my business, they offer quality products with the best service.William Chambers MillineryGlasgow, UK
Thermoplastic - people forget that millinery can also be a form of prop. Worbla is the gift that keeps on giving, from sci-fi headdress projects to weird and wonderful body ornaments Worbla has the endless capability to create super strong but delicate creations. I’d say worbla is one of my greatest discoveries xxFern BerreenSussex, UK
I recently visited Parkin Fabrics' warehouse in Oldham for the first time. I already loved the clear manner the materials are presented on their website, but the way everything is presented in the warehouse is even better! You get a good overview of the collection, so it is no surprise that I found a lot of new materials to experiment with. One of them being a lovely lamb nappa, which is now turned into a bandeau.Elly StemerdinkNetherlands
Hey, I can't stop loving my purchases. I will be back soon after I make some sales for a restock of the materials and of course with good clearance bargains in that hut:)Nayeja NgosiMalawi
