About Us


Our History

For over 140 years Empee Silk Fabrics has been providing quality wholesale fabrics to the fashion trade, wholesale, retail shops, markets traders , bridal wear, event organisers, theatrical and film industries.

Empee Silks Fabrics became a limited company in 1940 and since then has continued to grow and develop into one of the UK's leading fabric wholesalers.

The company traded for many years in the 'Rag Trade' area of London's East End. Under the current ownership the company grew from one shop in Brick Lane, Spitalfields in the 1960’s, to 3 different shops in the area in the 1990’s.

However to facilitate the company’s continued growth and provide a better service for our customers, we moved to larger premises of 27000 sq ft warehouse in Edmonton North London in 2002.

Our Warehouse

We stock one of the most extensive ranges of fabrics in the United Kingdom, with over 4 million metres of fabric under one roof.  To view all the fabrics you can enjoy walking freely around our warehouse, or sit comfortably in our show room and enjoy a coffee while you take your time to find exactly what you want.  You can visit us at any time without an appointment to see for yourself our extensive ranges of both regular fabrics and clearance lines.
