Brief Piece of History About the Direct Fabrics Family.

Direct Fabrics has come from humble beginnings and this little snippet is from an article produced relating to our now dormant retail business. Closed after the passing of the founders who started our journey is the soft furnishings world.

"Joe Simon commenced trading in 1947, his market stall was the place to buy velvet in the North East. Joe and his son Martin soon became known as ‘The curtain men from Leeds’ the chances are that if you are from the North East someone in your family will remember the ‘curtain men’ from the early days. Nowadays Direct Fabrics is a third generation family business. Over the last 60yrs we have expanded our business and thanks to our loyal and dedicated staff, continue to provide you with not only velvet but a comprehensive range of hotelweight and other quality fabrics and contract textiles, including bedding, towels and restaurant linens all at competitive prices"

Our contracts business ECS Enterprises Ltd / trading as Direct Fabrics still pride ourselves on the same ethics that Joe and Martin Simon created and we look to work with all our clients and share our passion for textiles to make your projects run smoothly and get the soft furnishings you expect from a British manufacture.

We look forward to doing business with you and we look forward to receiving any questions or comments you may have.
