Our History

If there was a beautiful fabric that Lida Baday didn’t buy, it was probably because she didn’t see it. Lida is passionate about fabric and her collections always started with the discovery or development of remarkably beautiful and refined fabrics. The feel of the fabric against the skin was as important to her as the fabric’s ability to be molded or sculptured into clean modern shapes. She is renowned in the industry for her exquisite taste, technical knowledge of, and appreciation for, luxurious fabrics and materials.

During the 27 years of creating her much admired womenswear collections, Lida amassed a vast inventory that included some of the finest fabrics and notions produced by Europe’s top mills as well as exceptional laces, ribbons and buttons made from a variety of natural materials.

After closing her company in 2014, The Fabric Room was created as a means to make these materials available to the wider industry. With more than 2,500 fabrics totaling over 200,000 metres, and a seemingly endless variety of exceptional notions, we are an unique resource for the fashion professional.

Some of the original employees that worked with this inventory over the years are now with The Fabric Room to offer advice and help you find what you are looking for.
