Constantia Fabrics offers a wide array of locally sourced natural cottons and linens as well as an elegant imported range of fabrics. Headed by Saleh Abrahams, a talented South African textile designer who has been creating original fabrics since 2007, the Constantia Fabrics store aims to bring luxury fabrics to the market at an affordable price for all. Since inception, Saleh has transformed the store into one of Cape Town’s top suppliers of handcrafted textiles made locally and abroad. Saleh believes in developing one-on-one relationships with his customers as to better understand and meet their individual requirements. This, combined with his love and passion for beautiful design, is what encourages us to return to Constantia Fabrics time and again.
Not only is Constantia Fabrics a flourishing hub of textile designs, it’s a company with a conscience. Saleh and his team support Project Playground, a Langa-based NGO which rehabilitates street children and provides a safe haven away from the streets, in the form of curtain and fabric donations.
More recently, Saleh showcased his latest range of fabrics at the Inspire Trade Show which was held at the Gallagher Estate in Midrand, Gauteng, from the 10th to the 12th July 2014. Five new designs were launched at the show, expanding on Saleh’s existing collection.
In early August, Saleh presented his designs to the hospitality and interior design trade in Lagos, Nigeria, as part of a trade mission supported by Wesgro, and later that month, he exhibited at SARCDA.
