    Five stars simply because it allowed me to say "WHAT WHAT? IN Z BUTT" about 20 times (much to the chagrin of my adventurer(s) in crime) while walking up & down Brick Lane. No idea if this establishment is the slightest bit reputable, but I DO get a chuckle every time I look back at London pics.

    Warning, it is both highly frightening & highly hilarious.

    First to Review

    This is one of 3 fabric shops left on Brick Lane - from many.
    As early as 5 years ago this used to be an area of fabric and trimmings shops catering to local factories.

    As this tradition has slowly died the fabric shops have also relocated or closed. However Z. Butt Textiles has survived.The shop has been there since the 1950's and is family run - now in its 3rd generation (4th ready to take over in 10 years!) They are so nice as well.

    Catering mainly to the theatre business now - its busiest selling time is pantamine season. And the fabrics reflect this -- no high end Berwick street here - They are pretty basic with alot of polyester satins and chiffons  / some upholstery fabrics and odds and ends .Cheaper to buy more than less, a tarif is put on meters less than 10.

    If you just need some plain cottons , calico or canvas with trims -or perhaps feel inspired - and have a need for a litttle gold poly lurex with sequin foil print or perhaps a little dayglow chiffon - it is all here.

    Seems to be one fo the few places left on Brick Lane that sells haberdashery type things (like needles & cotton), aswell as fabrics. They also have a selection of trimmings but wish they had more. Z Butt gets 4 stars as the staff are always very helpful; I was in there this week and they let me rummage in there many boxes of different coloured large cotton reels which are suitable for sewing machines. Thanks Z Butt!
