Brocade Textiles


for Fashion Designers


Our for profit company is a black and women owned space with a mission to provide independent designers with sewing and fashion business equipment to thrive in the fashion industry.

Black fashion designers make up less than 1% of the recipients of funding for business. In 2020 over $5 million was raised to support the fashion industry. In order for designers to receive access to industry capital and job opportunities they must show the skill level of experienced designers.


Designers require sewing machines, cutting tables and notions to produce innovative and culturally creative fashion collections. Here at our creative sewing studio Brocade will  cultivate a community of black and multicultural designers who need space to design fashion collections.
