Montreux Fabrics was started in Leicester in 1973 by Michael Mulligan and Sharan Marsh. Over the years it has expanded from selling fabrics on market stalls into various textile activities.
Montreux has remained a family business with two of their five children involved in the day to day running of activities. Michael and Sharan never imagined when they first started that one day they could bring their fabrics to the wonderful people who sew through the magic of the internet.
