our expertise

EXPERIENCE IN FABRIC WHOLESALE AND TRADE. ROOTS SINCE 1966

  • Medium to high end Imported Suiting and Shirting Fabric Distributor
  • Artextile International is the authorized wholesaler of multiple suiting and shirting brands imported from Italy, the UK and various locations.
  • The majority of Artextile International fabrics are procured from premium wool mills from Biella (Italy) and the neighboring areas of Biella. Conveniently located with abundant streams and lakes, Biella is renowned for wool manufacturing as early as the 13th century. Nowadays, it has emerged as the global hub for wool suiting fabric manufacturing.

Authentic fabric origin

  • We are highly selective of fabric mills we work with and source from the mills that have a long history of repeated success. For instance, mills of the like of Vitale Barberis Canonico have dedicated 350+ years in making excellent wool fabrics.
  • Most fabric collections we have are produced with selvedge - words weaved on the fabric edges showing the brand name, quality of the fabric, hence assisting in verifying fabric authenticity and relevant information. Selvedge is weaved on most of our collections; please check with us for more information.
