20% Off All Online Silk Category Fabrics 8/23 – 9/5

Silk Sale August 23 September 5 for Blog

Britex Fabrics loves everything about silk and it shows. Silk is a natural fiber that is usually derived from the mulberry silkworm’s cocoons. Silk has it all; it is smooth, soft, strong, and lustrous. Silk is ethereal for a summer frock, and just as smart for a winter frock-coat lining. We delight in traipsing about to find you the most chic Italian silks, natty necktie silks, brilliant jacquard silks, and airy sheer silk chiffons.

Britex Fabrics presents: PROJKT Maiden Lane

A Runway Showcase Featuring Four Designers
from Project Runway and Under the Gunn

 

Friday, Sept. 23 2016 / 7:00– 9:30pm  / Union Square, SF / Historic Maiden Lane is about to be transformed into a runway, as Britex Fabrics presents PROJKT Maiden Lane–featuring new fall designs from Emily Payne, Kini Zamora and Richard Hallmarq (All Three From Project Runway) and Rey Ortiz (From Under the Gunn), along with new work and collaborations with local artists Michael Covington and L.V.M.

Local designer/Britex Fabrics alum/Project Runway All Stars favorite Emily Payne explains, “I realized how many pieces in my collections have always been made with fabrics from Britex, and that it just makes sense to collaborate on a show. Both Richard and I have done draping workshops at Britex before, but this event is just huge.” Britex Fabrics has a long history of supporting local designers, showcasing their work in window displays and on social media, and even sponsoring the Academy of Art’s Britex Fabrics Project collection in 2009 (which previewed at Mercedes-Benz NY Fashion Week). “Fabrics make fashion–literally,” says Britex Fabrics owner Sharman Spector, “You can’t have one without the other. It’s wonderful to see what designers like Emily do with our fabrics, and we think it’s incredibly important to support that kind of creativity.”

Attendees of PROJKT Maiden Lane will enjoy free giveaways and pop-up shops with Britex Fabrics, Leathertongue & Devon Rose designed by Emily Payne, Goorin Brothers Hats, Threads Magazine, Myla’Cor Martinis, Caffe’ Central and more.

Doors for the Myla’Cor Martini Bar inside Britex Fabrics to open at 6:15pm. Runway show at 7:00pm.

Britex Fabrics offers a variety of workshops, online tutorials, community partnerships and store tours. A San Francisco landmark since 1952, Britex is four floors of fabulousfeaturing high quality fashion and furnishing fabrics along with notions, trims and 22,000 styles of buttons.

Britex Fabrics’ Website Redesign is Almost Complete

blog under construction

We’re gussying up our website! If you experience problems, please email us at service@britexfabrics.com for assistance.

The Britex Fabrics’ website redesign is almost complete, however during this period, there are a few tiny snafus.

All customer accounts are temporarily unavailable. They will come back soon. You can still place your order without logging in. There is an odd mystery message on order confirmations, which is meaningless.

Thank you for your patience!
