About Us

"The Skip" was founded in 1978 as a small shop in Bangor, Co Down. Originally selling remnants of dress fabrics from large wheeled wickerwork baskets known as textile skips. These were originally made to transport bales of cotton cloth around the mills in Lancashire.

Many years later the business occupies a 5000 square feet showroom in Newtownards selling fabrics from many of the best known brands in the soft furnishing industry.

Curtains and blinds are manufactured on the premises to the customers own specification, chosen either from the wide range of fabric in stock or from sample books or displays. Customers are encouraged to try samples of the fabric at home before ordering. Where the fabric is in stock we will provide cuttings free of charge, whilst display samples are available on loan for short periods.

Our custom-made curtain service provides unrivalled choice and value whilst the ever-popular Roman blinds have become something of a speciality in recent years.
