Max Times a Million!

20130904_143231We love how great ideas grow! First came Max the pug, then came an adorable Andy Warhol influenced portrait  of Max, and last came a chair upholstered in home decorating fabrics from Britex Fabrics. Kim sent us this photo Max with sitting on his namesake chair. Kim says, “Notice the picture on the wall behind the chair…I had that made from a photograph of our dog Max a few years ago.  When I saw the fabric in your store I (understandably) had to have it.  I recovered the chair and here is the completed project with the fabric’s namesake.  I love your shop and will be back whenever I am in the city.  Thanks again.”  This bow-licious home decorating fabrics is available on Britex Fabrics’ 2nd floor, via email at, or by phone at 415-392-2910.  Each pug square is 4 1/5″, so the minimum order is 1/8 yard. Content  75% cotton and 25% polyester. $49.99 per yard/55″ wide

Pop Art-Inspired Home Decorating Fabric

I have decided to throw a little September potluck and invite Eva Perón, John Lennon, Ann Frank, and Jack Kerouac. Seriously, I love this pop art-inspired fabric with a montage of 4” squares depicting international luminaries. One of our regular customers just bought some for a vest, but it would also be fabulous as floor cushions or mounted on stretcher strips as wall art. This home decorating fabric is on Britex Fabric’s 2nd floor, is 57” wide, and $39.99/yard.

Please email M. Du Jour at Britex Fabrics if you want to buy this fabric.

If you wish another fabric, contact us through our fabric mail order department for detailed mail order assistance.
