I'd like to locate a supplier for flocking materials. Most of my boxes are lined with suede, but I need something different for the freeform bandsawn boxes I'm making, to allow me to finish curved cavities that are tricky to do with fabrics. I've found what looks like the perfect supplier but they're in the USA - does anyone know of one in the UK?

Turners Retreat do some in various colours that are applied with colour-matched adhesive, so you could cover any shape, although I've never used it. Just search for "flock" or "suede tex". Commercial suppliers of better quality stuff seem to only supply large sheets.

As Simon has already stated Turners retreat is the place you want. i have used their Suede tex to cover the interior of a cutlery canteen which had some odd shapes and it did the job admirably. it is not cheap but works a treat and is so much easier than trying to apply a sheet of felt to the shapes.
