Fabric Merchants Retail Outlet

Los Angeles

By Suzanne O'Connor

Buying direct from the wholesale manufacturer is still the best way to get the best price on anything…. Including fabric. Fabric Merchants Retail Outlet is that store.

Both a manufacturer and a wholesaler, they supply fabric stores, designers, and home décor stores with fabric with both their own line of textiles as well as buying and trading current lines of other mills to different stores, online outlets and manufacturers nationwide.

With over 1 million rolls of fabric, their public warehouse retail outlet has savings of 50%-85% on apparel and home décor fabrics. You’ll find everything here including jersey knits to brocades, cottons, chenilles, faux fur, denim, lace and vinyl at outstanding discounts. Fabrics are current often ahead of season.

Most tables are laid out with fabrics that they have bolts of further back in the warehouse.
Generally 70% of the warehouse is apparel fabric and 30% is home décor, though they have a big shipment of home décor fabrics coming in. They have current denim fabric for 7 For all Mankind in as well as rolls and rolls of fabric used by Splendid/ Ella Moss.

Apparel Fabric pricing is low…. Often lower than DTLA and without the parking hassle. 

Highlights include:

Printed Denim is $3.50 a yd. (retail $10-$17)
Cotton prints are $3.25 a yd.
Suiting fabric is $2.95 a yd.
Printed Lace is $2.65 a yd, (retail $7-$9)

Swimwear fabric is $3.50 a yd.
Cotton Solids $1.95 a yd.
Asics Athletic knits are $1 a yd.
Floral knits $3.95 a yd.

7 For All Mankind Denim was $4 a yd.
Sweater knits (Ella Moss) was $3.25 a yd.
Faux Fur was $5.95 a yd.

Home Décor fabrics included Waverly, Mill Creek and Colonial Williamsburg. I was pretty stunned at a Waverly fabric I bought at Jo Anns Fabrics (on sale at $11 a yard instead of $22) was here at $4.95 a yd…. an 85% savings. Jo Ann’s still carries it.

Most drapery fabrics and home décor fabrics were $4.94 instead of $15-$25 a yd. Chenille ran $2.94-$5.94 a yd. Home décor Velvet was an astonishing $3.99 a yd. instead of $8-$12 in DTLA. Toile was $4.94 a yd. and Vinyl was $3.75

Owner, Steve and his family have been involved in textiles for generations. With established relationships with garment companies and mills worldwide, Steve’s Fabric Merchants Outlet Warehouse should be your first “go to” outlet for fabric.
