Fabric stores in Italy – Negozi di Stoffa in Italia

On this page I will try to list fabric stores in main Italian cities. Perhaps you could buy some Italian fabric as souvenir of your trip.
Italy is the country of fashion fabric. Generally you won’t find much quilting cotton as in the US or in the UK, but you will have plenty of wool, shirting cotton, suitings and more.
I also have a specific page dedicated to online stores in Europe

In questa pagina troverete una lista di negozi di tessuti nelle principali città italiane e dei negozi di stoffa online.

Store opening hours

Stores in Italy generally open at 9.30 or 10 a.m and close at 7 or 7.30 p.m.
They generally close at lunch time between 12 and 3.30 pm . It is only in the city center that stores don´t break for lunch and generally it wouldn´t apply to fabric stores.
Some stores may be closed on Monday mornings or Saturdays afternoons.
Stores may be closed during the summer around August 15th (it´s a holiday in Italy)
The above is indicative as hours may vary from town to town.

  1. Hi Silvia!!

    How are you doing? I am amazed with your in depth knowledge of fabric stores!! If not much trouble will you be able to help me with stores who keep 100% pure linen weaved in Italy which can be used for making baby stuffs and best if they can deliver to Switzerland even if not then also will need lead so that when I visit in October I can collect. Appreciate any help.

    Kind Regards


    1. Hi Tanya, thanks for reading my blog and for your kind words. You can try new tess (you need to register for pricing), lafab tessuti or possibly Allutex online. I’m not sure if what they sell is weaved in Italy but you can email them and ask. They normally could deliver to Switzerland.

  2. Where can i get the best suiting fabrics by Meter or Yard in Milan. I am looking at Super 120-150’s for Suits . Are there any express tailoring shops for suits , which could be delivered in 2 days in MILAN. I would be more interested in fabric stores in Milan , Grateful if you may help.


  3. Hello Tanya,

    I am looking for quality Italian tull in white used for bridal veil, which shop so you recommend that sells online, I’m based in Latvia.



  4. Hello Tanya,

  5. Hi Silvia

    Perhaps you can help me. I am trying to find dancefabric in Italy – namely lycra 4 way stretch and other stretchfabrics- which stores and perhaps fabrics is the best to shop at? And what is the keywords in italy?

    Kind regards Kia


    1. Hi Kia, you can find some at lafab tessuti under their category ‘spettacolo’ as Lycra bi-stretch. Email them in English if unsure about your choice. Otherwise try rijkstextil, their website is in several languages and they ship to Italy. The links are on my blog page. Hope this helps


  6. Hi Sylvia,

    Thanks for your site! Can you recommend a store to purchase cross stitch – I think it’s called ‘punto croce’ here? I’m in Bettolle so close to Arezzo, Siena and Montepulciano. Grazie mille!


  7. hi, Silvia, really great job you did. I found Pinotti through your blog and really happy with this. Ordered some great stuff, beautiful fabrics, and high quality, even delivery to Malta – 2 days. Thanks to you really. Your collection looks simply lovely – keep on. If you ever need any advise or just a dressmaker help – I am happy to do this, I am a dressmaker with 35 years of experience, really busy with my job, and still enjoying…

    1. Hi! I am really happy you liked Pinotti. I also had very good experience with them both online and at their store. I would be delighted if you could share your experience with me. Many thanks for your kind offer. Do you have an Instagram, Facebook account or blog?


      1. Hi!
        I`m going to stay in Milan (2 days) and Bologna (6 days) for a week, more precisely during 12.10-19.10.19. I’m very enthusiastic sewer so I would like to find nice fabric stores and sewing accessory shops, especially button shops in this area. I’ll rent a car there so it helps traveling around. I wolud like to sew nice clothes to mysellf. I would like to have fabrics ect. with good quality but not extremely high prices. What would you like to suggest? The shops can also be a littele bit outside Milan and Bologna.
        Best Regards, Marianne


      2. Hi Marianne, in Milan you could go to Emmepi tessuti and Tessuti e scampoli (here also good for notions and other supplies). In Bologna try Mercatino dello scampolo or get in touch with supercut.it There’s also Giesse Scampoli with several locations in Italy. Details are on this blog page. I hope you will enjoy your trip and find great fabric. I’d be happy to hear how it goes! Silvia


  8. hello Silvia, i need help, i am on your site for days now and i waned to ask you if you know some good online shop that sells silk?
    thank you for this post, it helped me alot.


      1. Thank you so much for reply 🙏🏼, I am looking for fabric in EU because of customs. I need silk for pillowcase so if you have more recommendations I would be happy to hear them. In Croatia we have very poor options for silk in fabric stores, most of stores have only chiffon and I’m looking for ‘raso di seta’ (i think that is silk satin)


  9. Hi Silvia! How amazing to share the same love for fabric ! I am from South Africa, going on a cruise this week from Barcelona. Would love to buy myself a piece of fabric in either Barcelona, Genoa, Palermo or Malta. Please advise- thank you in advance. Karlien x


    1. Hi Karlien, it sounds like an amazing cruise. My go-to place in Barcelona is Ribes y Casals near plaza urquinaona. Check out their sales section downstairs. There’s also another store right opposite. I am afraid I don’t know any stores in the other cities you’ll visit. Search for tessuti or stoffe and city name…you will likely find something. If you wish to share your finds I will be happy to add them. Have fun
