A Message From Our Founder
At Pound A Metre we've been working tirelessly to enhance your shopping experience and bring you a wide array of sustainable fabrics for over 4 years now. As the founder of Pound A Metre, it brings me immense joy to see how far we've come and how much more we can offer you now!
1. Faster Shipping: Your Fabrics, Your Way
We understand how crucial it is for you to receive your fabrics promptly, especially when you're working on time-sensitive projects. That's why we've revamped our shipping methods to ensure most orders are now dispatched within just 2-3 working days. Your creativity shouldn't be bound by long waiting times, and we've made it our mission to get your fabrics to you swiftly without compromising on quality. Actions taken to reduce dispatch times include the implementation of a new software- developed to help our order picker team to find and dispatch fabrics.
Sustainability: Stitching a Greener Future
One thing we deeply care about at Pound A Metre is sustainability & we've taken significant steps to minimize our carbon footprint. We're proud to announce that 80% of our parcel deliveries in 2023 are carried out using electric only vehicles. It's our small way of contributing to cleaner air and a healthier environment for all.
We've set ourselves on a path to completely remove single-use plastic from our business activities. It's a challenging journey, but it's the right one. We believe in being accountable for our impact on the environment, and we want to inspire positive change in the fabric industry and beyond. The introduction of 'Forever Use' muslin bags has allowed us to transport our fabrics without the use of single use packaging.
Retail Shop in Bradford: Embracing Tradition and Modernity
While we've embraced the digital realm to cater to customers worldwide, we also cherish the importance of personal touch and connection. That's why we've set up our retail shop in Bradford, West Yorkshire. For those of you who prefer to see and feel the fabrics before making a choice, or simply wish to save on shipping, you can now select our shop as your order pick-up destination. It's our way of blending tradition with modernity and ensuring your convenience.
An Abundance of Fabrics: From Our New Warehouse
Recently, we've moved into our new warehouse and it really has been a game changer. This move has allowed us to expand our storage capacity, resulting in an unparalleled variety of fabrics. Whatever your style or project, we've got you covered. Classic designs, trendy prints, and sustainable materials—we have it all. Our goal is to be your ultimate destination for all things fabric, and with our ever-growing collection, we're confident you'll find the perfect match. In 2023 we have also introduced some new creative lines such as bagmaking supplies, haberdashery & an upcoming launch of sewing accessories.
Community and Environmental Projects: Making a Difference Together
As a business, we believe in giving back to the community that has supported us on this journey. That's why we actively engage in local community environmental projects. We know that collective efforts bring about real change, and we're committed to being a positive force in the areas where we operate. Together, we can create a greener, more sustainable future for generations to come. Follow our socials to see some of the local projects we are involved in.
