Weaving history since 1976.
Defab began its operations in 1976 as a small specialist apparel weaver and has today developed to be Australia’s premier supplier of quality fabrics.
Since its humble beginnings, Defab’s range of fabrics has expanded to include apparel, internal and external sun protection, canvas and made-to-order fabrics for large scale purpose-designed developments.
World class design and production facilities, an international sales network and responsive customer-focused and after-sales service has enabled Defab to achieve unrivalled expertise in total textile solutions throughout the global textile market.
