About Us

Bolt of Cloth is the place to go for colourful , contemporary fabrics, gifts and home furnishings.


Bolt of Cloth is a Christchurch based family business.  Established in 2009, then nearly taken out by the earthquakes that wreaked havoc in 2011, difficult times have led to the colourful and inventive business you see today.


We encourage our customers to Be Bold – to us this is not about extravagant use of colour but being bold enough to not worry about what others might think and do what you love when furnishing your home. We think this is the key to creating a home brimming with personality that everyone loves to be in. (And lets face it, a full fridge and a friendly welcome are the real crowd pleasers!).

As well as a huge and stunning range of homewares from brands like Marimekko, Bolt of Cloth has a workroom which will tailor make cushions, curtains, lampshades, blinds, bean bags and more from any of our hundreds of fabrics.

We can support your interior projects by providing as little or as much interior design advice as you need in our own unpretentious way. If you live close to one of our stores we can come to your home to measure your windows and offer interior design advice - and if you're living somewhere more exotic than us than we can offer you the same great advice using emails and the phone. Just get in touch and see what we can do - we would genuinely love to help you.
