After Hours Britex Fabrics Textile Tours on Wednesday, February 12 from 7pm -9pm. Preregistration is required! This after-hours excursion, made up of part Britex store tour, part textile 101, starts on the Main Floor of Britex Fabrics. We’ll share with you a bit of unknown history and talk about how fabrics from all over the world end up in our San Francisco store. We’ll show you where to find what you’re looking for in this floor-to-ceiling finely curated and solidly-packed store. From wool coatings and imported designer silks on the Main Floor to outdoor adventure wear and laminated linen on the Fourth Floor, you’ll know the ins and outs of this 62 year old establishment after this two-hour tour. We’ll also talk about the basic textile categories and how they are created using different fibers, yarn construction, weaves and knit styles. Be sure to bring a notebook–our after-hours excursion is as densely packed as our four-story building. The fee for this social evening is $20. Light drinks and snacks are included.

After sixty plus years in San Francisco, Britex has seen unbelievable changes from the close of City of Paris and I.Magnin to the rise of tech in our very neighborhood. And now, even our usual style of keeping production local is receiving a different sort of attention. Our fabrics still come from all over the world, but our tote bags are made right here in San Francisco. We’re proud to announce that this year we are officially SFMade members.
SFMade’s mission is to build and support a vibrant manufacturing sector in San Francisco, that sustains companies producing locally-made products, encourages entrepreneurship and innovation, and creates employment opportunities for a diverse local workforce. Visit SFMade before you shop and you’ll be surprised to find out how many local companies are contributing to our local economy from casual fashion to your favorite food truck.
If you want to celebrate with us with great design, purchase your limited edition tote bag soon before they’re all gone.
