Pigeon Wishes is a wholesale fabric shop. Emphasising fibres, sewing and fashion.
We source high quality, exclusive fabrics not usually available to smaller retailers. Focusing on natural fibres, bold prints and colour we ensure the fabric we stock will bring a garment to life.
We are a responsible brand and source all our fabrics ourselves, personally visiting all our suppliers. We source the most sustainable fabrics we can. That means working with Lenzing approved factories, deadstock suppliers and buying overstock.
Pigeonwishes shops was founded by Megan Valero (an avid stitcher) and Duan YuHao (a tea enthusiast and tech master).
Megan’s sewing….and subsequent fabric buying, started in her twenties as a hobby to relieve stress and bring some creativity and happiness back into her life. Needless to say sewing slowly started taking over her life and the house! She is passionate about the sewing community that has evolved from the creative women sharing their dressmaking and the sewing businesses that have supported them.
YuHao grew up around craft, which was entwined into the everyday life of all the women in his family, unfortunately the craft gene missed him but we won’t hold that against him. His creative outlet is music and he spends his free time playing his vintage classic guitar. His collection of tea, love of efficiency and organisation make him the cornerstone of the business.
The very heart of the business itself is Olimi Duan, our mascot, intern and all around helper. He’s been with us sourcing fabric, working late organising the studio and most importantly stroking fabric to check the quality. He currently enjoys watching the fabric rolling machine do it’s thing!
Valerie Valero (Megan’s mum but likes the title Creative Director better!) a Mental Health Nurse by day and an integral part of the team in her spare time. Never short of ideas and always keeping us on track, she is the reason all the plants in the studio are still alive and thriving.
Brian Robinson (another unpaid family member!) and the best handyman out there! He helped us transform our studio into the cosy pigeonhole it is (pigeon palace on the good days). Our business wouldn’t be here without him.
