Our Story

Selvedge and Bolts was borne out of a love for bold and colourful fabric and the inability to readily find it at affordable prices. Our mission is to source beautiful fabric from around the world and offer it to you at reasonable prices.

At Selvedge and Bolts (SAB), you will find cottons, silks, linen, wool, cupro in enchanting prints and textures. 

Hi, I'm Dibs and I am a fabric addict.

My sewing story started in 1998 when I asked my mother to make bedding for my university room. She promptly refused, gave me some fabric, and pointed to her vintage singer treadle machine and told me to sew it myself. Unfortunately, I stopped sewing after that first introduction, till 2009 when my husband bought me a Brother machine from Argos for the princely sum of £68. I have been sewing since then and developing an addiction to fabric.

My fabric addiction, though more recent, has given me an appreciation for quality fabric. I love abstract prints, large florals, bold colours and different textures in fabric. I intend to source all of these for you and I hope you will love what Selvedge and Bolts has to offer.
