Our story • Remnant Kings


We are a passionate and family run Glasgow-based business selling furnishing fabrics, made to measure curtains, ready made curtains, dress and bridal fabrics and patterns, craft fabrics, haberdashery, ribbons, trimmings, wool and crafts.

We have a rich heritage in the fabric industry having begun trading in 1946 by Frank McKeon and James King, two brothers-in-law who shared the same drive and passion to provide the best fabric range at the best possible prices. They liked nothing better than to see customers leaving the shop with a genuine bargain and a smile on their face. The Remnant Kings reputation quickly spread and people travelled from all over Scotland to the shop in Glasgow’s east end. Over the years the company has expanded and we now have 5 fabric stores in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Falkirk and Hamilton. Although our roots are in fabric remnants we now sell fabrics sourced from around the globe including designer names Harlequin, Moon, Voyage, Lorient, Casamance, Casadeco, Clarke & Clarke, Prestigious Textiles, Brian Yates plus many more.

So whether you’re looking for plain, patterned, traditional or contemporary fabrics or curtains, ribbons, buttons, trims, motifs or wool, you can rest assured we’ll have exactly what you’re looking for in-store and online. Combining this breadth of product range with our experience and know-how, Remnant Kings is well placed to provide you with exactly what you need and want to create unique interiors, outfits, costumes and craft designs at the best possible price.
