Promenade Fine Fabrics is a renowned, long established retail store specializing in Fine Designer Fabrics and Vintage Ribbon.

Promenade is a small family business and independent apparel fabric store in New Orleans, Louisiana (United States). Since 1968, we have prided ourselves on exceptional customer service; and an elevated quality of unique designer fabrics by the yard, ribbons by the yard or bolt, buttons, trims and more. We specialize in Silk, Linen, Cotton, Wool and Rayon/Viscose Fibers. We have also taken an interest in carrying stock of sustainable and recycled fabric options, a section we hope to expand upon. In addition, there is a bridal section that is dedicated to the finest silk satins, mikado twill, taffeta, crepes, peau de soie and designer dead stock laces. This section is geared towards the perfect, distinctive wedding dress and bridal options. Also check our new addition to the ribbon section: an amazingly inventive and unique collection of vintage appliqués, ca. 1940’s from Europe.

We specialize in couture textiles, from designers, cutting rooms and mills all over the world.

Much of what we have in stock is unique smaller yardage designer silk, wool, linen, cotton and rayon, dead stock fabric by the yard. We scour the globe and try to make sure that no one else carries what we do. That means most of our products are in short supply, distinctive and can never be had again or reordered. This is also the case for our lovely selection of vintage ribbons, discounted roll ends and vintage appliqués. There are exceptions to this rule as some of our sections can be remade in mills, especially with our sustainable fabrics. Ask us.

Promenade focuses on apparel fabrics for sewing clothes – not upholstery. For furniture and home dec fabrics, check out our sister store Back Room Fabric.
