Here at Funky Fabrix we offer Australia's widest range of Sustainable Certified Organic and Vintage Textiles! We also offer super speedy service, phone assistance and fast email support.
Funky Fabrix is a small family business, based in Brisbane, Australia.
We are dedicated to bringing our customers the best collection of sustainable, GOTS Certified Organic and Vintage Fabric available in the world.
Born out of a love for vintage collectable textiles, Funky Fabrix has been online since 2004, originally selling vintage fabrics.
Funky Fabrix has been the leading retailer of fabric for nearly ten years. In that time we have been proud of our achievements of bringing you the customer- a wide range of fabrics that were often sourced from suppliers that offered a difference in fabric.
Whilst we have enjoyed bringing you colourful bold retro style prints and will continue to do so, we now are altering the direction of our business.
We will now be stocking exclusively, 100% pure organic fabrics. These will all have been certified by GOTS.
We believe that we as a business have a responsibility to stock only organic fabric. These fabrics are all natural from GMO free seeds and healthy soils as opposed to standard fabrics which are often treated with fungicides and insecticides. The dyeing and printing is low impact using natural dyes as opposed to chlorine bleaching and high temperature dying which in turn has a damaging effect on the environment. The heavy metals in pigments run off into waterways polluting waterways.
Here are some more sobering facts. Conventionally grown cotton uses more insecticides than any other crop in the world. These chemicals are deadly. Factory workers breathe in their fumes during manufacuring. World Health Organisation estimates 20,000 deaths are attributed to pesticides alone. In America, more than 10,000 farmers die each year from cancers related to such chemicals.
We can no longer support this industry.
We will now only be supporting companies which are eco friendly, sustainable, fair trade and produce organic textiles.
We still will bring you the freshest boldest prints . You can buy in the knowledge that the fabrics you are purchasing are fully organic and are fair trade.
Thank you for your continued support, we all can make a small difference to the world we live in.
