Britex Fabrics                    117 Post St, SF                             415.392.2910

Britex Fabrics began as the brainchild of Martin Spector, who was a fabric merchant in Poland. The San Francisco store officially opened its doors in San Francisco’s Union Square in 1952. Today, Britex Fabrics features textiles from new local and international designers, alongside goods from world-renowned fashion icons. The store itself has become a landmark–attracting ‘seamsters’ of all kinds, fashion and design students, and myriad performers and costumers in film and theater. Celebrities bump shoulders with brides-to-be, and DIY-ers and professionals come equipped with paint chips and diagrams in search of drapery materials and upholstery. The latest styles in fabrics can be found here.
