Many of the fabrics on this website and the majority of what we carry in our New York City store are originally from top-of-the-line European fabric mills. They are often produced in France and Italy, and eventually reach our shelves in the heart of the NYC fashion district.
Most of our stock are designer fabrics. These are the last cuts of overstock rolls produced for major international fashion design houses, which are no longer in production, and all that remains on the market. Our buyers look out for these high-quality fabrics and purchase them to offer to our customers. We have over 40 years of relationships that allow us to secure the best fabrics available.
For this reason, we always encourage ordering swatches first to get the best sense of weight, stretch, and fabrication, as we frequently do not receive these details upon acquiring our fabrics.

Supporting sustainable fashion
The fashion industry has a reputation for being harsh on the environment. Our fabrics celebrate the slow-fashion movement, and are for those who appreciate quality and wish to express their individuality and creativity. In this way, we’re helping to reduce the carbon footprint of fast-fashion.
