Melbourne's Flinders Lane was once the heart of the 'rag trade'. Embracing this tradition, and with a family history of fashion, Tessuti Fabrics have arrived in Melbourne.
Located in the upper ground floor of 141 Flinders Lane (with the well-known button and needle sign so you know you are just where you should be) the store embraces the European Atelier style with cavernous space, plenty of natural light, the delightful antiquity of cast iron radiators gently heating the space, polished concrete floors and fabric. Fabric, fabric, fabric. Missoni, Armani, Chanel to name just a few; then there are the local designer ends too.
Tessuti have stocked the store with fabrics to drool over, fabrics for someone else to drool over; perky Japanese pattern books, notions, threads, stands of zips, linings and a wonderful refectory table complete with pews and baskets of European and Australian magazines to pour over whilst deciding just what to buy.
Open Monday to Saturday, with Saturday having a 'much more relaxed feel' this shop builds on the tradition of fine fabric, stunning designs and amazing spaces all located in this the 'smart and funky' Flinders Lane.

... Fellow Melburnians, I have only one thing to say to you: Drop everything (except, of course, newborn babies) and get your running shoes on and head on over there! The fabric/ribbon/button ranges are to die for! So many gorgeous, exquisite fabrics and textiles, all in one beautiful light filled space. Luckily our credit card has a limit, because I could have bought up the whole gosh darn store! ...- Jorth (Melbourne blogger)
... They're an experienced bunch too. Having already established themselves all over Sydney, the Tessuti Fabrics crew couldn't have found themselves a more appropriate site ...- Melbourne 3000 (Melbourne's subculture)
Finally, Melbournites have an amazing designer fabric store right on our doorstep in Flinders Lane. There's been nothing in Melbourne like Tessuti Fabrics from Sydney ... until now ...- Love Bento (Whats loved in Melbourne - See combo box 30)
... Seriously, this place is dangerously good. Full up with designer ends in a superb range of colours, textures and fibres I was in sewing heaven. And the store is really nice too - very roomy and pleasant (in stark contrast to so many of my usual fabric haunts) and out of the hurly burly of the more heavily trafficked part of town. I might move in ...- Soozs (Melbourne blogger)
