Uniquely yours

SINCE 1966

Our Story


Desai Fabrics has a unique history and unusual for today, we remain a family-run business with a long tradition in fabrics. Founded by Ratilal N. Desai and his wife Kantaben, in 1966, the business is now run by his son Satish, alongside his wife and daughters.

Located in a tranquil suburb of North London, we started out as a Sari shop offering goods from Japan, Switzerland, and France. By the 80s we had started to diversify into all aspects of western fashion fabric as Saris slowly started disappearing from mainstay Indian fashion. 

Our Story

Our passion and specialty has always been in natural fabrics.  We stock a wide range of couture and designer fabrics including cottons, linens, silks, woolens and exquisite French laces.

As ever, we are very serious about quality and we source our fabrics from recognised manufacturers across Europe.  We value the importance of well-made clothing with lasting appeal and encourage the quiet and slow nature of crafting the perfect piece for your wardrobe.

We pride ourselves on the diversity of our collections and excellent standard of service. As we continue to grow, building on our decades of expertise, we are taking our first foray into online and we’re very excited about what is to come.
