I’m getting an awful lot of people asking me for pricing information on Eclipse’s range of products following my last article. I did ask them, however they’ve rightfully pointed out that they’re a wholesaler to industry and don’t sell directly to the public. While this site is aimed principally at fashion students and the ready to wear industry, there are an awful lot of home sewists reading the site so indeed it’s inappropriate to publish that kind of pricing. If you are in the ‘game’ and would like pricing I strongly urge you to contact them directly as they’re a really great bunch of people and there’s no better product range in Australia (I’ll stand by that personally).
If you’re a home sewist you can ask for any of the mentioned product names at your local fabric retailer and if they don’t have it you can ask them to source it from Eclipse … the more people that do this the more likely it’ll happen. The Carvico 384 matt and shiny ranges are very popular at retail dance fabric suppliers so it shouldn’t be difficult to source.
Some of the more technical fabrics I’ve been talking about are directed at industry purchasing large meterages. I’d strongly urge industry to give Eclipse a call for some samples or swatches as technical textiles have changed a lot in the last 5-10 years and it may be time for a change.
