More than 1,000 Samples
In the comfort of our luxury space in Shoreditch, close to Old Street tube station, you can find more than 1,000 samples of Pongees quality silks, laces and fancies – minimum order 1metre.
The Pongees team provides expert advice about the various qualities to ensure that you select the appropriate fabric - and shade - for your collection. We welcome buyers from all sectors of the industry, including established and fledgling designers, costumiers, seamstresses and students.
The relaxed atmosphere of the showroom means that you can look at all the hangers and then go online and order samples – swatches, shade cards and catalogues – or place an order for delivery to your preferred address or collection – often next day – from the showroom. Our team can help you set up an account if you do not have one. Swatches are available to take away if your request is urgent.
Showroom Collection Service
We can arrange to have the Pongees van deliver your securely packaged order to the showroom for collection, in person or by your courier company, for £3, plus VAT.
Same day delivery/collection is available, but dependent on the timing the order is received, its size and busy periods. Orders can also be sent onwards from our showroom to your studio by our designated courier.
Sanmartin Bridal and Haute Couture CollectionsPongees represents Sanmartin, a well-established Portuguese supplier, so also on display are bridalwear, haute couture fancy and sustainable ranges to provide an even greater choice of fabrics available with low minimums.
Bargain BuysSAVE UP TO 50% by buying our clearance stock, samples of which are in the showroom. You can also see what’s available online.
Who's Talking about the Showroom?
I’ve received the silk safe and sound - it’s beautiful. I’m really impressed with the whole service and will recommend you to anyone I think you can help! My dressmaker will also do the same”
The thing that amazes me is the level of communication from you. You deserve to succeed because you care, you communicate and this clearly comes across
A veritable wonderland of silks, the Showroom offers both natural and synthetic mixes in (almost) every glorious hue imaginable! Louis is amazing - incredibly helpful and welcoming - and I never leave disappointed. The best customer service I have ever received, and my favourite silk shop! Would highly recommend to any student or designer
Pongees is a big advocate of helping next-generation designers. I often feel intimidated going to other wholesalers as my minimums are low, but Pongees welcomes all customers - from students to start-ups.
