Indie Christmas Fabrics
Maybe you've had your fill of the commercial Christmas fabrics that are available each year and are looking for something a bit different? Or you have a special design you've created yourself that you'd love to see printed?
Fashion Formula can help as they have an abundance of great indie Christmas designs that will be pretty different to other fabrics you can buy on the High Street.
How does it work?
In a nutshell, people can visit the Fashion Formula website, select a design they like and order it on fabric, wallpaper or as a finished home product.
Here are some of the independent designs for Christmas that you can order. Browse the whole range here.
Fashion Formula have over 500 independent designers already contributing designs on the site and you can pick from a huge number of themes for the type of fabric you want. By purchasing the fabric, you are also supporting these independent and talented designers who earn a direct commission from the sale of their design.
