Sophie Strohmeier

I am a textile artist that has studied, grown up, worked and lived in Perth, Western Australia.

I love to make all kinds of things with my hands and my imagination, but I like the things in my life to have a purpose and be useful…

Inspired by my Mum who made most of my clothes as I grew up I fell in love with fabrics to the point of distraction.

I now have a major fabric fetish. I collect all kinds of beautiful and seductive textures, which are used to make my work…

I actually started my shop because after my Mum past away I thought… “Hang It – just do what you Love! Enjoy it everyday and hopefully others will find it enjoyable too. LIFE is SHORT after all…”

So this shop is dedicated to my Mum… Thanks Chick!! Without you it would never have been possible! You were a constant source of inspiration in my life…

It’s Important……..!


With hundreds of fabric options we have something for everyone

Design & Inspiration

Design for me often evolves from the many things that I find intriguing, interesting or inspiring… It could be a fabric, my friends, a musical performance, a plant, a picture, a dream or even some cool graffiti…

I surround myself with fabrics which I often find inspire me to make products which let there best qualities shine.

At Materialise the process of design evolves with each new customer that comes into the store with a will to want to create something for someone they love.

Each person who comes in looking for inspiration and design has an idea or a brief of something they wish to create. Our job is to help you in your quest to unlock the inner designer within you to create something for your life that makes your heart smile.

At Materialise we run a range of classes & tutorial sessions that are designed to suit you as an individual…… Our method of teaching enables you to learn the techniques & skills required to complete your desired project whilst giving you the creative confidence & knowledge to design & produce future projects with a successful outcome.

Come in & make beautifully crafted things in our comfortable & colourful store…… You’ll Love It!!
