Tela Bella - a wonderful new fabric shop in Estepona

Unlike the UK where fabric shops seem to be everywhere, here in Spain, away from the big cities of Barcelona and Madrid, it can often be hard to find a place to simply go and buy material. Such has been the case on the Costa del Sol – Malaga has some good fabric stores but if you live further down the coast then it getting there can be a bit of a hike. A welcome addition then was the recent opening of Tela Bella in Estepona. They have a great space, close to the industrial estate with easy parking and stock some wonderful fabrics with a ton more available on short order. They also stock dress material and carry a great range of party decoration fabrics. In addition they can make up your curtains for you along with any other soft furnishings you need. If you’re not sure about measuring and fitting, they can do that for you too and they even offer an upholstery service.

As a lot of the fabrics that TelaBella stock come from the UK, the designs and styles are different from what you’ll find elsewhere in Spain so naturally appeal to the expat community – they also speak English and French in addition to Spanish so the lingo isn’t a problem when explaining about that tricky window you’ve got on the stairs!

Open every day from 09.30 – 14.30 and 16.30 – 19.30 and Saturdays from 10.00 – 14.00, they are friendly yet professional and can offer some great advice.

We do sell “floaty” fabric – we stock lightweight voile and organza and can also supply chiffon, crepe de chine and peachskin.

We stock a lot of fabric ideal for stage, events etc. Sequined, embroidered, diamonte, organza, tulle, spider tulle etc.

Where are you based? If you could come and visit us in the shop I will be able to show you our range. We also offer wholesale prices to trade buyers.

I look forward to seeing you soon,

Best regards,

Thanks for a really great visit, you were SO helpful.....will be back soon, in the meantime can I order 2 mtrs of the shiny turquoise and gold crumple material you pinned on a. Card for me....which I have left in the club wardrobe! Tell me when to collect and I can get some other bits.....looking for off cut/ only a metre of soft gold material to make large sash....not light weight floaty ...more like lame or inexpensive look alike,

Hello Christine, yes we are still here and this autumn will be expanding! The extended store will be stocking - in addition to our huge range of fabrics - good quality bed linen and towels, wallpapers, carpets and a fantastic range of bespoke exterior and interior floor cushions. I'm afraid we don't know of anywhere where you could rent a sewing machine from but I will make some inquiries and if I find anything I will let you know. We look forward to seeing you soon!
