Where can I find textiles in Zurich

One month in Zurich and still so much to do... I am now trying to find some
textiles for decoration, and don't know where to find variety and design. Any
suggestion?

Re: Where can I find textiles in Zurich

There's a shop at Sihlporte (Tram 2) in Zurich City - but it's quite pricey. Here's their link:

http://www.medesa.ch

There used to be a large selection in a C&A in town, but I think it closed down - or moved? I couldn't find it on google - maybe someone else knows.

Then, of course, there's always Ikea (Dietlikon, Spreitenbach being closest to Zurich)

Coop City St Annahof has a limited amount of material on some of the upper floors.

Fabric shop in Zürich

Afternoon everyone,

I was wondering where I could find dress fabrics in or around Zürich? I specifically need to look at laces for a wedding dress and really don't know where I would find this type of material.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Re: Fabric shop in Zürich

hi Fern, my aunt likes a fabric shop at the end of Loewenstrasse for the fancy stuff. I don't know the name, but it's visible from the Sihlstrasse tram stop, on the corner of Loewenstrasse and the main thoroughfare perpendicular to Loewenstrasse.

I've gone with her a few times, and they have been quite nice. If they don't have what you're looking for, I'm sure they'd point you in the right direction.

Re: Fabric shop in Zürich

check this thread...

except: the shop bartholemew is referring to is called "modesa" (not "medesa") - and, as I've just checked, their website is under (re-)construction.

Re: Fabric shop in Zürich

Hi, Fern

I also recommend Modesa (ex-C&A). If you are looking for special (dress) fabric, take a look at

LE COUPON
Storchengasse 10/Wühre 13
8001 Zürich
Tel. 043 456 30 01
Fax. 043 456 30 09

According to their website, opening hours are
Sun, Mon: closed
Tue - Fri: 10.00 - 18.30
Sat: 09.00 - 16.00

I also made my own wedding dress (but i bought materials in Italy).
Here is a link to an online shop which you may be interested in... (in German only, though). ENJOY!

Re: Fabric shop in Zürich

There's one in Oerlikon (next to Burger King accross the train station).
Or, why not go to Konstanz that is about 45min drive away from Zuerich. There is a department store in the center, called Karlstadt. They have a lot there.

Re: Where can I find textiles in Zurich

Hi

I was wondering if while looking for fabric anyone found any good shops - I am looking for something with sort of Alpine scenes on it (cheesy but its for an appartment Klosters)..... I found some lovely stuff but it was 290chf a meter!! Way too expensive.

I've looked in Manor, Coop etc but they don't have anything so wondered if anyone knew of an online shop - either Switzerland, German, UK or US - but it has to be very alpine

Thanks

Sharon

Fabric and Textile in Zürich

Would like to know where can I buy inexpensive fabric in Zürich. I am not looking for flashy patterns, rather the Cath Kidston and Martha Stewart style. Please let me know if anyone have some recommendations, thanks a lot

Re: Fabric and Textile in Zürich

You can find some nice and reasonably priced fabric at Näh-Szene on Talacker in Zurich: http://www.naeh-szene.ch/

The only other store I know of is a few blocks away from Näh-Szene, at the intersection of Talacker, Sihlstrasse and Uraniastrasse. They have very nice fabric, but more on the pricey and designer side.
