Limited Edition Britex Fabrics Totes

These limited edition canvas totes were created and hand-screen printed for Britex fabrics by a local designer in foggy San Francisco. Our basic black tote has an image of lace hand-screened onto textured canvas. Our natural tote has an image of a lacy San Francisco silhouette, including the iconic Britex Fabric neon sign. Want a great gift giving idea? Instead of a stocking, give something people can use, and stuff a beautiful Britex Fabrics canvas tote with meaningful goodies such as handmade, home-baked and locally crafted gifts. Size: a hunky 14” by 16”

Vintage Britex Advertising – 2012 Calendar


We’re bringing it all back! To celebrate our sixtieth anniversary, we have raided the Britex archive to bring you some of our favorite advertisements beginning in the 1960s. This 2012 calendar is full of history; together we can reminisce on the good old days when luxurious camel hair fabric was only $24.95 for a 3 yard panel , and sporty wide wale corduroy was only $1.95 per yard! This calendar is a delightful peek at vintage advertisements from Britex Fabrics. (Or receive a free 2012 Britex Fabrics calendar with any purchase over $100)

SF Tweed, Cyclist Club par Excellence!

Drat! We missed the last SF Tweed ride, however ‘tis never too early to prepare for 2012. We have a plethora of tweed fabrics at Britex Fabrics, ready to be sewn into wooly dapper attire…capes, Norfolk jackets, riding suits, smoking jackets (pipe optional)! According to SF Tweed, we are “a rare breed of cyclist — ladies and gents who refuse to endure anymore spandex! For us there is nothing better than a spin through our fair streets in the finest most dapper attire. As we are courteous, we do not look down on our more pedestrian fellows. SF Tweed will embrace all forms of Tweed Culture: from cycling to croquet outings to picnics — anywhere there is a spot of tea available. If you yourself are hosting an event where tweed would be welcome please let us know!” (photo from Boston Tweed Run, 2010)
