"FibreGuard’s inherent stain resistant technology allows you to enjoy your drapery and upholstered furniture, assured it can withstand the demands of daily living."

Developed in European laboratories by major global supplier, Bru Textiles, FibreGuard provides strong stain resistance for a wide variety of common household stains. The FibreGuard process coats the yarn in the finishing process resulting in an inherent strength and longevity to the stain resistance that will last for the life of the fabric.

FibreGuard features a wide variety of fabric types, styles, and designs seamlessly combining technology and style.

Resisting stains and being easy to clean makes FibreGuard stand out from other stain repellent applications. Stains are easily removed using a clean cloth, water and sometimes soap, enabling cleaning without specialised solutions or chemical cleaners.  The simple cleaning process and excellent results on any coloured fabric make FibreGuard unique.

FibreGuard is also Oeko-Tex certified, a global independent standard involving the testing of the fabric for harmful substances. Oeko-Tex tests for numerous regulated and non-regulated substances which are harmful to human health. This certification ensures FibreGuard is environmentally safe to use in any residential or commercial setting.

A 5-year residential stain resistant warranty in Australia and New Zealand provides both design specifiers and consumers peace of mind.

James Dunlop Textiles is a wholesale supplier for the furniture trade. Please contact your nearest retailer to specify our products or contact us to open a trade account.

We’ve developed a deep-seated knowledge of interior textiles in our 110-year history. We’re interested in different ways of living, and we’re constantly exploring what fabrics can bring to people’s lives. And life has always informed what we do. 

We believe in fabrics that have a unique viewpoint, born from a curiosity about the world. Fabrics with a sense of purpose. Fabrics that are crafted with passion, and embrace the lives spent on and around them. Fabric that spans trends, generations and cultures. The fabric of life.

Our Story
James Dunlop Textiles was founded in 1907 in the bustling port of Dunedin, New Zealand as a supplier of European fabric to retailers. From a dynasty of Freemen and textile merchants based in the Scottish countryside close to the border of Northern England, a commitment to quality design and performance ensured longevity for company and product alike.

Over a century later, the fourth generation Dunlop family governs this innovative design-based organisation across the Asia- Pacific region. With a strong focus on sustainable textile excellence, coupled with world-class logistics and service, the company enjoys industry accolades and support from a wide base of global retail and interior design customers.

“We are proud of our history and legacy; delivering excellence and a sustainable future to the textile industry. We are passionate about quality fabrics, and have been for a very long time.”

Design Studios
James Dunlop Textiles has three design studios – Sydney, Auckland & Melbourne. By virtue of their locations, these studios have important access to two of our key markets and the ability to explore and forecast design trends.

Bursting with creativity, the studios and their team's research, develop and customise fabric and wallpaper from conception to market entry. Their ability to work with international suppliers and view textiles within the greater design context provides an essential service to the company and our customers.

At James Dunlop Textiles we are interested in different ways of living. We’re constantly exploring what fabric can bring to people’s life. We view the world through a uniquely Australasian lens, so in designing and curating our collections we look both outwards and inwards.

Being on-trend is compulsory, but as important to us is being relevant to the environmental and situational usage that our fabrics will be exposed to. Whether it Christchurch, Canberra or California, our textiles have been purposely designed to perform and look great.

Our Culture
We’re a people business and we’re relationship-driven. Our suppliers, and most importantly our customers like to know that our people care and are passionate about the product and level of service they provide.

We have a fabulous team of talented individuals who work together at all levels to achieve the vision and goals of James Dunlop Textiles.
