Extraordinary [and evolving] timesMar 24, 2020

I'm not sure how relevant this information will be by tomorrow(!) but here's a rundown of how we've reorganised to comply with Government restrictions and to ensure the safety of our team and clients - which is foremost in our minds.

Firstly our warehouse will close at the end of today. Due to New Zealand's lockdown we can no longer process yours orders - as much as we'd like to think fabric is an essential service! New orders will be despatched as soon as we are able to return to work. We will advise you if there are any changes to the availability of our indent products.

All our Account Managers and Sale Service team are now working from home and can be contacted by phone and email. They welcome your calls, orders and product inquiries - or just a friendly chat! Our Australian Account Managers are happy to visit you, by arrangement, to supply samples, cuttings and to show new products.

Our Australian Showrooms remain open to trade-only with strict adherence to safe distancing and hygiene practices. Our hours are now 9am - 5pm. Please note that we are closing for lunch 12:30pm - 1pm.

Sadly our New Zealand Showrooms are now closed. 

Stay safe and take care over the coming weeks. We look forward to seeing you when we are back in business - stay tuned!

Covid 2


Covid-19Mar 17, 2020

By now you will have received the mailout regarding our response to Covid-19. For those of you who have unsubscribed I've pasted it below (please contact our Online Editor if you'd like to sign up or re-sign up to our mailout list)...


Hi Everyone,

We would like to advise you of the procedures Unique Fabrics has put in place with regards to Covid-19.

Firstly our showrooms remain open for business. The health and safety of our employees and clients is foremost, as a consequence we have introduced practices around the disinfecting and handling of our sampling and goods. Our hard surfaces are being disinfected regularly throughout the day. Gloves and hand sanitisers are available in our showrooms. While we won't be shaking your hand on arrival, you will be welcomed with a warm smile.

Melbourne and Brisbane's hours have changed to 9:00am - 5:00pm. These branches will be closed from 12:30pm - 1pm for lunch.

Sydney and New Zealand hours remain unchanged.

We have no disruption to the supply of our indent products. We have good stock levels of our in-house collections, our orders will be supplied as normal. 

We have a strict policy for our team "stay at home if you feel unwell". Conversely if you feel unwell please defer your visit until you recover.

Our sales team are keen to show our latest collections and are still making appointments. They will contact you prior to any visit to confirm you are still prepared to see them. Alternatively we can send cuttings, samples and e-brochures to assist with sourcing for your projects. You can also use our website www.uniquefabrics.com to check stock, pricing and to order cuttings.

For any queries please contact your Account Manager or our Sales Service team on AU 1800 145855 or NZ 0800 864783.

We will keep you informed of any changes via our blog, instagram and facebook. 

Stay safe!

Kind regards,
Carol Fry

Sale of this century! (so far)Feb 03, 2020

Here's one for our VIC clients... We are on the move! This is our last full week in our Burwood Rd showroom so we're having a moving sale! Cameron, Emily and Phoebe are on a mission to sell our display drops, cushion covers and fabric lengths at heavily discounted prices. There are lots of goodies and we need them gone because we don't want to take them with us. Call in and grab a bargain!
