Collection: Fabric - Purple

Mysterious, Inviting and Regal Purple Fabric

Purple is the colour of creativity and innovation, but it's also considered a royal colour due to its luxurious appearance. If you're looking to make an instant impression with your clothing or furnishings, purple creates an air of mystery to any design.

You can find the perfect purple fabric for your needs at Yorkshire Fabric Shop. Whether you're looking to upholster a chair or make a new dress, we have a range of quality purple fabrics in many material types.

Purple fabrics that redefine quality

Are you tired of buying cheap fabrics that don't last? Have you tried using other fabric shops, but they never work for you?

Imagine getting the highest quality fabrics at a great price. These are not just any fabrics; these are built to last and will stand up to years of use.

Quality doesn't have to be expensive, and we make it our mission to provide each customer with the perfect combination of value for money and superior fabrics.


Chenille is renowned for its elegant aesthetic and durability, making it one of the most popular choices for soft furnishings. It's made from wool, rayon, silk and cotton, which gives it a silky feel.

However, despite chenille's combination of delicate fabrics, it also lasts a long time, guaranteeing high-quality products that exceed any consumer's expectations.

We have a selection of purple chenille fabrics for contemporary and traditional designs, including the Napier Greek geometric pattern. Or, you can keep it simple with our Tanga plain chenille material.


Corduroy was the material of the 1970s, and many people wore it as a statement against the establishment. Since then, things have changed for the better, but corduroy continues to be one of the most sought after materials.

It's perfect for clothing because the fabric is highly durable and warm. Better still, corduroy is officially 'in' now, so these materials are perfect for creating trousers and jackets.


Light and breathable, cotton is a go-to fabric for clothing and soft furnishings. The versatile material is breathable, so many designers use it for shirts, underwear and trousers. However, don't underestimate cotton because it's also one of the top material choices for curtains.

Purple is always in fashion, so opt for simple patterns such as the Playtime plain cotton upholstery fabric. Or, be daring with our Opera Kilim fabric, which features an Aztec print.

Leather/Faux Leather

Leather and faux leather are two popular choices for upholstery, clothing, and accessories. Leather is made from the skin of an animal, typically a cow, and has been used for centuries as durable, resilient material.

On the other hand, Faux leather is a manufactured fabric that imitates the appearance and feel of leather. Many people choose faux leather because it is often more affordable than genuine leather and does not cause any harm to animals.

We have both real and faux leather options, so you can create designs that meet all lifestyle choices and budgets.


There's something about velvet fabrics that exudes luxury. Perhaps it's the way the light catches the material or how it seems to invite touch. Whatever the reason, velvet is associated with wealth and power.

Today, velvet enjoys a resurgence in popularity, appearing in everything from clothing to furniture. While it may have a reputation for being delicate, velvet is surprisingly durable.

When made from quality materials, it can hold up well to wear and tear. So if you're looking to add a touch of luxury to your life, consider investing in some velvet from the Yorkshire Fabric Shop.

Choose from our Modena Collection, which comes in various colours, including metallic purple, or go bold and choose a Circular modern pattern for soft furnishings.


Woven fabric is a type of textile created by interlacing two sets of yarns or threads at different angles to one another. Woven fabric can be made from natural and synthetic materials, including cotton, wool, linen, silk, and polyester.

It's a popular choice for creating clothing, upholstery, and drapery, but woven fabric is also frequently used in the production of rugs and carpets.

There Are Many Benefits To Shopping With Us

Our journey began many years ago on the cobbled streets of Yorkshire. With a small mill and a passion for creating high-quality fabrics, we set out to make each customer's life a little easier. Having quickly gained a reputation, we expanded our company, and now we're one of the UK's premier fabric suppliers.

Here's why so many people choose to buy purple fabric from us.

We're committed to quality

We go out of our way to deliver the best quality fabrics and know that the best mills view their job as a craft. Durability is essential when it comes to chenille, weaves and more complex fabrics, so we refuse to stock any purple materials without testing them first.

We don't sell them if they don't meet our high standards.

You get flexibility

Why buy by the metre when you're unsure if your chosen fabric will work? Instead, we offer our customers a £1 sample or jumbo sample for an additional charge. You can also take advantage of speedy delivery.

We go the extra mile

Whether this is your first order or you're a regular customer, we'll always go out of our way to give you the best possible experience. You can also subscribe to our newsletter to get tips and our latest offers straight to your inbox.
