Our History

Charles Parsons Group

Craft Project is part of the largest and most diverse textile and fabric wholesale group in Australia and New Zealand.

The Charles Parsons Group is a privately owned family business comprising diverse and highly successful businesses operating throughout Australia and New Zealand, as well as servicing markets in Europe, Asia and North America.

Commencing in 1915 supplying fabrics to suit manufacturers, Charles Parsons has diversified across almost every category wherever fabric or textiles are used. This includes the supply of roll stock to garment manufacturers from basics to high fashion, performance sport, school and corporate.

We also supply the home textile market in drapery, upholstery and finished goods in home accessories including cushions, throws and napery.

Charles Parsons provides garment manufacturers with the trims and accessories necessary for all aspects of garment construction, but also designs and manufactures fashion garments for well known Australasian vertical retailers.

Our team has deep technical and specialist textile knowledge and are able to deliver highly specified garments and related products for emergency services, defence and the rural markets as well as specialist textile based products to the industrial, commercial, marketing, medical, agricultural and consumer sectors.

Our Story

WE HAVE A RICH PAST, A PROUD PAST. WE HONOUR IT NOT ONLY FOR HOW IT DEFINES US TODAY, BUT ALSO FOR THE WAY IT POINTS TO OUR FUTURE.

We go by the name of the man who started the business in 1915, and it is now four generations of Charles Parsons who have steered this company over nearly 100 years, to become the most formidable of fabric houses in Australasia.

Charles Parsons recognised very early in the business' history that the strength of the business lay in the commitment and expertise of his staff, and whether the challenges of World Wars, the 1930s depression or just the ever-changing competitive landscape, it was the Charles Parsons team that always made the difference.
