About Us



Fabtex has been in the family since it was founded in the 1980s by the late Roy Armstrong, under the name Golden State Automotive Products. A motor trimmer by trade, Roy had a true passion for the intricacy of the fabrics and upholstery that he worked with. Fast forward to today, and we’ve expanded to suppling premium upholstery, fabric, leather and vinyl solutions across an array of industries.

Even through time and growth, Fabtex is still traditionally run by Roy’s family and long-standing team of fabric specialists. We strive to keep our prices realistic, our quality high and can meet the demands of both large and small manufacturing operations. But our true purpose lies in our ability to exceed your expectations in product, service and delivery – every time.



Offering a variety of fabrics and textiles, from vinyl, suede, leather and carpets, to sourcing your specific fabric needs from world-leading mills. Whatever your upholstery needs, Fabtex specialises in providing premium solutions throughout Australia and abroad.

If we don’t have it, we’ll do our best to find it – sometimes you need a specific material or accessory to do the job. If we don’t have it in stock, we have access and knowledge to find what you are looking for, or work with you to create a product that suits all your needs.
