Macquarie has a Design Philosophy that combines creativity and innovation with quality of design, product performance and customer service. Macquarie creates all of its designs in the Melbourne design studio and then carefully and closely monitors their evolution through each manufacturing stage.

The Design Team at Macquarie utilises CAD and CAM technology to design and manufacture its stock service ranges, as well as custom design fabrics, for specific end uses. Macquarie's flexibility enables the Design Team to take a customer's design concept, transform it into a fabric simulation computer printout and then ultimately supply a fabric sample representing design, colour and quality, all within a short timeframe.

Macquarie explores many avenues of fabric design, from heavy duty Commercial Upholstery to 100% super fine Merino wool Suitings. Macquarie's many and diverse product areas include fabrics for Transport, Hospitals, Hotels, Commercial Furnishings, Industrial applications, Schoolwear, Corporate and Fashion, covering many areas of the woven fabric market.

Macquarie visits and exhibits at domestic and international textile fairs keeping the Design Team at the forefront of the latest developments in design, colour and technology. The Macquarie Design Charta is to satisfy market needs by creating inspiring, innovative and functional designs. The Design Team can create new fabrics, either jacquard or dobby designs, or simply recolour existing base fabrics upon request. The possibilities in partnership with Macquarie are endless.
