Don't have a full answer, but here's an address:

Beaten Path Studio Cotton Street Castle Douglas DG7 1AR United Kingdom

I assume that this is in Scotland.

They don't seem to have a website, but writing them may be the best bet.

Don't know if this helps, but I saw an episode of "The Furniture Guys" where they refinished a 1950's couch with vintage fabrics. they visited a store in Philly that deals in 20th century vintage fabrics (20's - 60's). Maybe search the net for them.

I have just found a company called Chess who do a range of Mackintosh fabrics priced up to 30 a metre. I believe they are sold in John Lewis stores. I have spoken to them, they are based in Chesham, Bucks. Their phone no. is 01494 772074 There is also a company called Voyager who apparently do a more limited range. I haven't yet found their address but am going to look at some samples tomorrow in a fabric shop in Taplow.

I also have been looking for MAckintosh fabrics as we are constantly asked for them - we already stock many vintage fabrics such as GP & J BAker, Mulberry, Borderline and Florence Broadhurst but with the latest MAckintosh revival we have needed to find further suppliers - so hopefully by the time anyone reads this we will be able to be of some help to you - call us on 0208 360 3082

Art Deco - Djoeke Wessing in Amsterdam, The Netherlands has a fabulous range of original Art Deco Designs http://www.21stcenturyvillage.com/art-deco-fabrics.html These fabrics are unique in that they are orginal designs still made using the original techniques and materials so they are very authentic. So much so they've been used for the refurbishment of the Tuschinski Theatre and The American Hotel in Amsterdam - both famous Art Deco landmarks in the city. Djoeke has a wide range of designs to choose from. This shop is a haven for lovers of Art Deco materials, lighting and lamps and accessories.

Not sure exactly what you are looking for but there is a store in Renfield Street, Glasgow called Mandors which stocks beautiful fabrics and has some with Rennie Mackintosh designs. You can see some of them at this site www.charlesrenniemackintoshfabrics.co.uk but this may not be there full selection. They stock quality fabrics and will ship. The staff are very helpful and I have been extremely happy with everything I have purchased there.
