We carry out all manufacture at our purpose-built facility in Cheddar Somerset, which houses three HF welders and countless sewing machines enabling us to work with a wide range of fabrics to create bespoke shade solutions as well as prototyping and repair anything you can imagine made from fabric .

Fabric Repairs

We carry out fabric repairs, from tents, awnings and tensile structures just to mention a few, over the last few years we have specialized in on-site repairs on safari tents and glamping tents. Feel free to contact us to see if we can help.

Fabric Printing

We can print up to 5m wide dye sublimation based on a 3-week lead-time on receipt of print-ready artwork. If you require us to assist in setting up your artwork are design team can help with this, please use the artwork guide

CAD Drawings

We can work from your CAD drawings and design fabric structures and visuals to give you a clear idea of your end product.

Project Management

We oversee your project from start to finish offering support throughout the whole process.

Fabric Structure Installation

When required our site team and subcontractors can carry out the full installation of structures, to suit your project’s needs.



We work with many exhibition contractors and venues manufacturing ceilings, printed walls and hanging signage, most of which are ex-works. We are happy to assist with site installation when required.


Safari Tent Repairs

Our company is very well known in the glamping tent industry due to our high standards using both modern and old sail-making techniques to repair and maintain canvas tents. We maintain a high number of fabric structures for large holiday parks through to small one-off boutique glamping sites. Offering annual checks on your safari tents, bell tents and glamping pods throughout the UK. Helping protect your investment ensuring your tent can stand up to the harsh UK climate.


Shade Sails

We manufacture Shade Sails for both domestic and commercial clients, these are manufactured using high-grade fabrics and fittings. They come in a range of standard sizes and can also be made bespoke to suit your required layout.

No Project Too Big Or Too Small


We work with various clients ranging from designing and manufacturing a Shade Sail for your home and garden or repairing your caravan awning/tent through to a large exterior or interior structure for a blue-chip client e.g. Willams F1, Asos, Vista, NHS and those of which we can’t mention due to an NDA. Yes, we have assisted on many prototypes over the years so of which you would have seen or even used yourself.

We originally set up Fabricworks ltd to service our sister company Tensilefabric, this partnership allows us to assist you on the larger projects through Tim Youde at Tensilefabric. We will still supply the fabric and manufacture your structure but the whole project will run through Tim giving you continuity.

This approach allows us to work on smaller projects, such as Shade Sails, Fabric Repairs, Safari Tents, Trailer Covers, Awnings, Pergolas, Pool Covers, Tank Covers etc. You still get the same high-end finish using the same high-end fabrics associated with the larger scale projects, we do pride ourselves on dealing with members of the public assisting them with there one off projects and designs and bringing them to life, we get a great deal of satisfaction from seeing the end results and how happy the customer is.

Basically, if you can make it from fabric we can manufacture it or repair it!

We’ve Been Doing This For Over 30 years

Our team has over 30 years experience in CAD, manufacturing, project management and installation of fabric structures and shade sails.

Client Testimonials

Dear Gareth & Colin

We are delighted with the standard of work and attention to detail. The panels fit perfectly and will transform the use of our outdoor garden room.
You have exceeded my expectations and would be happy to recommend you to friends for any bespoke projects. Nothing was too much trouble and great we’re able to adapt the original plans to accommodate by providing zip-off panels meaning can store away when needed.

Many thanks again and also for your helpful hints for kayaking spots.

Best wishes to you and Colin.

Thanks for this. Seriously thanks again for Monday, the ceiling looks incredible and everyone has been commenting on how good it looks.

Please thank Colin & Dan again too, it was a pleasure working with you guys.


Project Manager and Designer, Arnolfini, Bristol

Just a quick mail from the hot & sunny med, (currently moored up about 20 miles east of Malaga), to let you know the awning is proving to be a great success, and has been much admired.

Hope the weather isn’t too terrible there in the UK – thanks again for your excellent service and a really well-made awning,

Peter Taylor
