We aren’t your typical
store, and we don’t want to be!
is an online boutique-style fabric shop. Our brand has been
developed as an answer to the sterile and unoriginal products and environments offered by typical fabric stores.
We want our customers to feel comfortable and at home when they buy from us; we promise our products and website will
and mesmerize you. It’s a joy for us to work here and we hope it will be a joy for you to shop with us.
Our inventory is driven by our customers’ needs. Opening our doors in Fall of 2011 with limited inventory allowed us to take the time in developing our curated collection . We wanted to meet and learn from our customers prior to fully stocking our shelves. Since then, our assortment has grown to include leather, upholstery, crafting, quilting and hardware because that’s what our customers have asked for. Our phyiscal location closed in Winter of 2022 but we still offer our locals eaiser ways to shop and the occasional pop-up.
Focusing our efforts on stocking designer deadstock fabrics for the quality, exclusiveness, and variety. They are harder to find, but well worth it. Deadstock fabric refers to the fabric from the designer’s sample rooms that were not used in production. We at Measure focus on designer as this fabric usually ends up in the trash and we just can't bear to see that! It's just one of the many ways we focus on reduce, reuse, recycle.
Most of Measure's stock comes from Italy, other European countries, India, and a few from China. Maria handpicks each quarter in every collection that is sold at the shop, with love and care.
We are constantly looking for new and original products and our buying strategy allows us to bring in a variety of new inventory every 3-4 months. Because we offer our customers a one-of-a-kind selection the products aren’t available in large quantities, this means the products move off the shelf quickly. Thankfully this makes more room for new fresh inventory; while keeping our items limited editions.
When our customers need that special something, when they want to make a statement, or when they need help making the right choice, they confidently shop with us. We are based in the heart of Savannah, Georgia. Our team is always available to provide personalized help so you find exactly what you want; we pride ourselves on the individual attention we give to our shoppers. We even have a customizable survey ( located in the footer of our website) to help us assist in choosing the right fabric for your projects!
We were built from the ground up with the help of family, friends, and colleagues. Our owner is a proud SCAD graduate and is committed to employing, promoting, and encouraging the SCAD community to the very best we can. It’s important to us that we use sustainable building materials and employ local small businesses whenever possible. We fully support community in any way we can.
She graduated from Savannah College of Art & Design with a degree in fashion, and immediately began working as a merchandiser for 25 stores.
After working her way up to becoming an assistant designer, she spent her time buying shoes, jewelry, accessories, and fabric for the clothing department and private labeling footwear and clothing. She soon became a department chair for three departments and increased sales by 65% in 3 years. She quickly learned that she had a particular talent for determining what fabric would be best for not only garments, but footwear, handbags, and accessories. Fabric buying became her favorite aspect of the job and she transitioned again.
During Maria’s time as an assistant designer and buyer, she used her unique fabric determining talents when working with many international companies to specify the drape, texture, and appropriateness of fabrics for garments via photos and the internet. Realizing that this wasn't something everyone could do, she felt pulled to start her own fabric shop that focused on a comfortable atmosphere with hands-on customer service.
In her spare time, she loves walking around savannah, crafts (she rarely finishes) and searching for her next outdoor adventure.
Terr is our social media manager who can be found behind the camera, helping Maria work out the details of initial ideas, and keeping the Measure feed up to date with content for sales and giveaways. She is studying fashion design and marketing at Savannah College of Art & Design, and started working at Measure in October of 2018. She was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, however, due to her family’s work, traveled overseas for much of her childhood. She enjoys hiking, reading about mysteries and ghost stories, and creating with her hands, whether that be sewing a garment from scratch, upcycling a preloved piece, or making earrings. Before joining the Measure family, she worked as a freelance editor, talent agency intern, and assistant costumer. She loves Measure because of the relaxed and fun environment, the emphasis put on sustainability, and how much she’s learned about determining fabric drape and texture.
M.K. is our shopgirl in heart. Graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design with a degree in Fashion. She managed our brick and mortar store for 4.5 years before moving to Charlotte, NC, where she contributes both remotely and on her many visits to Savannah. M.K. is the shop’s “get it done” girl and can’t seem to stay away from Measure, even from 2 states away. She can sew up anything in a flash, will gladly teach you the difference between silk and satin, and started her interest in textiles through the couture bridal industry. M.K. is also a human calculator, which comes in handy often. When not working, M.K. has two cats, loves wine, and is known for being a tad bit “extra.”
Paige is the shop assistant near and far. She graduated from SCAD in 2019 with a degree in accessory design and worked behind the scenes of the shop throughout her time at SCAD. She was often in and out of the shop and doing the little things to make the shop run a little smoother. Now she provides emotional support all the way from London, England. She is working on her masters in footwear in London and you can probably guess that the leather section at Measure is definitely her favorite. If her bank account would let her, she would have one (or two) of everything. When she is not working, Paige is probably starting a new project despite the other 10 that she has not finished.
Stephanie is the newest addition to Measure; she’s a rising fashion marketing & management major at Savannah College of Art & Design. Stephanie is from Irvington, New York, and is enjoying her time studying in Savannah. Before working at Measure, Stephanie was first able to work with fabrics at a local sewing studio in Hastings-on-Hudson, where she helped teach kids the basics of sewing. When she’s not working, Stephanie loves to take walks in Forsyth park, wind down with some yoga, or cook with her roommates. When not in Savannah, Bald Head Island in North Carolina and New York City (particularly SOHO’s shopping district) are among her favorite places in the world.
Gabby was born in Rhode Island but fell in love with Savannah while studying fashion at SCAD. Before working at Measure she worked retail in a jewelry store and gift shop where she had the opportunity to meet people from all different walks of life. She likes to keep busy knitting, sewing, baking, and (in the summer) gardening. While quarantine has made her a home-body, Gabby enjoys exploring new cities, with Savannah, Boston, and Paris being some of her favorite places in the world.
Kyla is our newest product photographer! She is currently working towards a BFA in commercial photography at The Savannah College of Art and Design. Born in Hunan, China and raised in Keystone, Colorado, Kyla grew up with a love for skiing, hiking and mountain biking. She incorporates nature into her photographs. Her work with pet portraits has been published with appearances in National Geographic and The Huffington Post. Before joining the Measure family, Kyla has worked as a freelance photographer for outdoor and luxury jewelry brands. She is excited to learn about fabric draping and selling.
Jana Perez is a current SCAD student majoring in Equestrian Studies with a minor in Fashion. In her fashion world, she loves designing and styling anything bright and bold. In her equestrian world, she rides dressage and show jumping, but loves relaxing trail rides equally as much as she loves competing. When she is not at work you can find her spending time with the SCAD horses, in a coffee shop, or thrifting new clothes.
