We are here to service your outdoor fabric and sewing needs. Park Avenue Mercantile's goal is to stock or have available the materials you need to make, repair or modify your outdoor or heavy duty sewing project.
If you're making a formal dress or quilt, we probably won't have what you're looking for. However, if you're repairing or modifying a back pack, wall tent, or other outdoor equipment this is the place to shop. We have a great selection of supplies.
We carry PU coated 900d polyester canvas in black, green, burgundy, gold, grey, and red. Priced at $7.50/yd, this fabric is perfect for bags and covers. Also in stock is an assortment of 500 and 100 denier cordura in subdued colors and digital camo. Available by special order are numerous fabrics, including Sunbrella, Sunforger, Star Fire, Leno Mesh, and many others.
Our webbing is available by the yard and price varies with width. In 1" width, we stock colors to match our canvas; as the width increases the available color selection gets smaller. Our webbing is a heavy weight 799 pattern weave perfect for straps, handles or almost any use you can think of. In addition to webbing, we also carry nylon tapes that are a great way to reinforce or finish your seams or edges. We have a selection of Velcro in several widths and colors, as well.
We stock the following zipper tapes that are sold by the yard:
We also carry locking, non locking, single, and double sided pulls, along with an assortment of heavy separating zippers in #5, #7 and #10 that are perfect for leather jacket or coverall repairs.
We have a complete selection of nylon and acetyl hardware for webbing from ¾ to 3 inch. The smaller and larger sizes have limited hardware available, but ¾ and 1 inch sizes have a large assortment of hardware available. The picture is a representation of what we carry but our actual selection is larger.
