Accessing fabric samples made easier with Material Bank

Material Bank is the world's largest marketplace in the architecture and interior design industry, providing the fastest and most powerful way to discover and sample materials including fabrics, tiles, paint and flooring for the North American market.

Founded by visionary entrepreneur, Adam Sandow in 2019, his goal of creating the most user-friendly and sustainable sampling system for designers and architects in the United States and Canada has been a game changer for the industry. The platform powers complex searches across hundreds of brands in seconds.

 

Samples ordered by midnight are delivered in a single box by 10.30am the next day.  A free service for professionals, the technology can help turn hours of work into minutes with detailed search filters from colour to performance and design to technical attributes. 

James Dunlop and Mokum fabrics are proud to be a part of this innovative marketplace, where we have a large selection of our curtain and upholstery fabrics and wallpapers available to our growing North American audience.

Located in an 80,000-square-foot, robot-operated, state-of-the-art warehouse in Memphis Tennessee, Material Bank have partnered with FedEx Express’s world hub to execute handy overnight shipping for every order.

What’s more, Material Bank significantly improves the sustainability of the design industry by reducing the number of inbound packages to firms by over 70%.

A diverse range of samples across multiple brands are aggregated into a single box, eliminating unnecessary shipments and reducing waste. Through their sample return programme, Material Bank reclaims and reuses more architecture and design samples than any other company in the world, estimated to be around a 70% sample return and reuse rate.
