Posted:Does anyone know where I might be able to get my hands on a good variety of Parachute silks, UV materials.

I feel like getting creative, but I have not found any materials that inspire me in the least!

Any idea's of stores in London area or where I can purchase materials online would be much appreciated.

Thank you kindly

Posted:Thanks Tadpole,

Wish there was some shop that I could venture into to have a look though. Is it just me or does anyone else find the textile industry in the UK & Eire pretty crap

Posted:Eerrrr yea the one time, back when I used to be a piece of cheese I went to a material shop looking for silk to make me some cheesy Don King type sheets. They thought I was mad and they ended up trying to make me look at wedding dresses or something.

I live in a world of infinite possibilities.

Posted:Indeed...well no.. WHAT??



Visions of Deepsoulsheep pulling back a veil and sliiping between the skirts of a wedding dress for a good nights sleep!!

Its amazing how expensive material is and what a poor selection there is though I read somewhere that real fur was being treated and died to look like fake fur and sold as fake fur because it is cheaper than the fake stuff!

Maybe I will make myslef an outfit made entirely from paper clips Not sure if it would be very comfortable though
