ABOUT US . . .
Social Fabric [Design House] is a textile design studio based in Brisbane, Australia. Our chief designer, Lynne Tanner, is well known for her strong, impactful designs and a love of colour.
Lynne's eclectic tastes and a background in graphic and industrial surface design makes Social Fabric ideally placed to create fabrics that reflect a passion for NOT running with the pack.
We believe colour is underused in the face of an overwhelming “safeness” evident in many of today's interiors. Striking use of colour and pattern are our lifeblood and we are passionate about making sure that, once again, they become more readily accepted in the interiors industry.
Lynne's earliest ideas were expressed as large, bespoke tablecloths. Beautifully detailed, they were artworks in their own right and because they were created for what is essentially a social purpose, they gave us the idea for the name of Social Fabric.
That was 25 years ago and since then our technical skills have ensured that Social Fabric continues to develop as a respected and reliable supplier of innovative, high quality textiles.
All Social Fabric textiles are designed and printed in Australia to the highest standards. Our designs are printed on high performing, easy care, commercial grade base cloth, ideal for interior solutions. The base fabrics are flame retardant, mould resistant and have high abrasion and UV resistance, meaning they wear well and feel great. The print has great depth and is colourfast, too. Social Fabric use digital technology and we print to order. This means our designs are never out of stock and colour variation between batches is minimised.
