Interior fabric stores in Switzerland

I am struggling to find a trade supplier for interior fabrics in Switzerland (or even a store that has a broad range of fabrics at reasonable prices). Does anyone know if such a thing exists? There seems to be a really poor selection of interior fabrics on offer compared to what you can find in France and England. I have searched for online suppliers too but to no avail....every other country but Switzerland!

Any advice would be appreciated

Re: Interior fabric stores in Switzerland

Switzerland is a much smaller market than the UK or France. If you can't find what you are looking for you may have to go the the UK or France or online. I often by fabric online (or did when I was in CH).

Have you gone through the yellow pages and found all the fabric stores in your area?

There is a store in Etoy that has some lovely fabrics and a large selection. It's in the commercial area near the Hornbach. Schilliger also have nice fabrics. Not sure how "reasonably" priced they are. Oh, how I miss Schilliger....

Re: Interior fabric stores in Switzerland

I think this thread has a number of possibilities for you.

Fabric Store - Geneva, Lausanne, Nyon area

There is a decent interior decorating store in Etoy, http://www.heytens.ch/, perhaps the one Minimia was referring.

Thanks for the info Ittigen and Runningdeer. I knew about Heytens but I don't think they sell fabric by the metre. Will double check though in case I'm wrong.

Yes. That sounds familiar. I know they will do curtains for you. But I vaguely remember that they will also sell you the fabric too. I could be wrong. It's been a while.

If you go there used to be a lovely French style furniture shop in the same complex. Oh, Interio also sells fabric by the meter, Ikea too (obvio). But I'm guessing you hit the big ones already.

Good luck!
