Online fabric store is a website where you can buy fabrics distantly: either from the comfort of your own home, or even on the go.
As any other online shop, it is generally about the win-win model both for a customer and seller: you save your time on visiting a retail store, a seller saves on covering the overhead costs of running a traditional brick-and-mortar business.
However, the textile specifics bring in certain limitations to a customer experience on the other hand too, and the most evident one is a physical inability to touch the fabric he or she buys. To what extent does this limitation become crucial for a customer? Is there a way to overcome it? Where can you find the fabrics of the future fashion trends? Find the answers in this guide.
How to Select Fabrics?
When shopping for a new smart phone or vacuum cleaner, the main information you are looking for is the technical characteristics of the device: the screen resolution, processor generation, memory and battery capacity for a pocket gadget, or the sucking power, the type of a litter container and the noise level of a vacuum cleaner. However, when it comes to fabrics, the figures and metrics mainly stop mattering much: what’s that great about the ultra fineness or outstanding durability of fabric if the colour or print doesn’t suit you? That's when the visual properties of the goods and the mastery of a copywriter come to the first place.
So, here are the basic fabric selecting tips:
To spot as many properties of the fabric as possible, read thoroughly its description and look for the photos shot from different angles to let the bends display the texture and reveal matt or glossy effects.
Pay attention to the fabric content, which is crucially important in case you have an allergic reaction to various natural fibres, such as wool or fur. These days, you can find faux fur that offers no less in terms of warmth and softness.
Don’t forget, that the screen of any electronic device has its specific matrix specifications, which often results in quite a different colour display across the monitors of the seller and buyer. So, read carefully the fabric description to find out what the original colourway is.
When searching for several items — say, the fabric, buttons and lining for your suit — try to order them all at once to receive just one parcel. Having such habit will save you hundreds of dollars in the long run.
The fabric brand still matters. Trust us or not, but even in the current conditions of global market competition, lace fabrics from China and France can vary in terms of their weave quality, and the difference is often not in favour of Chinese lace.
Run out of ideas? Impressed with the fabric design, yet don’t feel like this or that cloth is truly what you’ve been searching for? Oh, this happens, believe us. To bring yourself back on the right track, find those or similar fabrics showcased in a dress concept. You would typically find them in such website sections as “Sewing ideas”, “Fashion concepts”, “Featured ideas”, etc.
Probably no one would deny the comfort of online shopping per se. However, to make it smooth and safe, we recommend that you followed these tips:
When visiting an online shop, always pay attention to the first five letters in the URL bar of your browser: it must always be ‘https://’, not ‘http://’. The letter ‘s’ means an encrypted connection that secures all the payments and personal data information processed via that website.
Online shopping is global, so check the information about the location of the shop you are going to buy at to estimate delivery terms and prices.

When dealing with coupon fabrics, pay attention to the price tag, as the price can be set as for a coupon, as for a running metre.
If feeling doubt whether this or that fabric suits you, consider ordering its swatch. This may cause you extra costs, as you will have to pay both for the swatch and for its delivery, however, the swatch will be super informative in terms of the texture and real colour of the fabric you have set your eyes on.
