February 7, 2024

GMC is delighted to welcome new member LoomTex, Australia’s last remaining woollen furnishing textile mill and dye house, proudly based in Geelong.

InStyle and Colan Australia announced the joint acquisition of Geelong Textiles Australia late last year. Rebranded as LoomTex, the textile manufacturer has been repositioned towards a stronger future and long legacy in Australia. LoomTex will continue to create upholstery, apparel and technical fabrics in Geelong for commercial and domestic use, with plans for investments in technology, research and development that will ensure it remains at the forefront of the industry.

Instyle is an award-winning sustainable textile wholesaler supporting Australian design and production, while Colan is an internationally recognised manufacturer and distributor of high performance industrial textiles.

LoomTex manufactures heavy duty commercial upholstery fabrics including Native, Atlas, Tonic and Source from the company’s sustainable LIFE Textiles collection as well as Think Plus.
