Toys For Joy Collection

A reminder to all our CRAFTING HEROES!

We’re having a ‘Toy for Joy’ toy collection for charity this month, up until Friday, 21st December 2018.

Anything is welcome but remember that handmade items are created in an environment of LOVE and JOY.

If you would like to, please put your toy in a shoebox and deliver it to the Global Fabrics Tokai or Fish Hoek Store already wrapped. Remember to include a note to specify the age and gender your toy is for.

If you don’t have a shoe box on hand, that’s no problem. Please drop your toy off at one of our stores and we’ll make sure it’s wrapped.

We can’t wait to see what our Crafting Heroes are going to create over the next few weeks and to spoil the many deserving children we support.

Thank you!

Tropical Outdoor Fabrics

Why you need them?

Outdoor fabrics are fabulously useful – especially for the South African lifestyle and climate. They’re colourfast; sun, chlorine, abrasion and water resistant. They’re anti-bacterial, mildew-resistant and machine washable. What’s not to like about them, right?

Mention that you want to have patio scatters made or your indoor-outdoor furniture recovered and any decorator or fabric house of reputable fiber, will make you understand that it’s an oh-so-important non-negotiable to use outdoor fabrics.

That’s only if you want them to last, of course.

 Take a look at our new arrivals:


• UV stabilized polyester & acrylic.

• Both fibers are resistant to rotting, mildew, mild acids & alkali’s

• Suitable for outdoor applications

• Water repellent

• 150cm width

• 73% Polyester 27% Acrylic


FOR ONLY: R150 per meter (Floor stock only)

You may order additional colours via our supplier: only plains and stripes available.

We can also order from our fabric library such as:
