Business for sale

After 30 years of importing Liberty fabrics from London Christabel is looking to retire and is reluctantly offering her business for sale.

This boutique business offers an energetic entrepreneur the opportunity to expand the business with the potential to cover the retail markets and manufacture garments (as has been done previously).

Currently Christabel is selling a large range of Liberty fabric from her showroom and increasingly, since the launch of the website in 2005, online.

The business can be run from anywhere there is room to display/store the fabric and internet access is available.

Christabel would be delighted to assist the new owner to learn the business that she has been passionate about since 1984.

If you are interested in buying this business please, in the first instance, contact Christabel.

Richard and Christabel Tylee are fabric retailers specialising in Liberty Fabrics from London. They have an extensive range of Liberty Tana Lawn and a small range of Liberty Kingly Cord, Liberty Twill and Liberty Varuna Wool.

The Liberty Tana Lawn was named after the Tana Lake in Ethiopia because the yarn to make the fabric came from the Sudan. It is a beautifully fine cotton fabric and when it was introduced to the Liberty Store in the 1920's it instantly became their best selling fabric and sold in quantities which broke all their records.

This is still the case today. The Lawn is soft and durable and is perfect for summer clothes, nightdresses and in winter to wear under wool or for travelling in the Northern hemisphere.

In Christabel's showroom in Havelock North can also be seen bags of Liberty Patchwork pieces of varying size, Liberty Lawn Fat 1/4's and Zippit bags made by the Zippit Company in Blenheim.

The Liberty Fabrics have a great tradition and history going back to 1879 and importing it from Libertys in London has been a wonderful interest and challenge for Richard and Christabel since 1984.

They hope you enjoy browsing their selection online or visiting them at 86 Kopanga Road Havelock North
