At this location is the iconic Britex Fabric whose main entrance is around the block on Geary. They are “a San Francisco landmark, Britex Fabrics is a must-visit for designers, sewers, DIYers and anyone seeking creative inspiration”.
“Britex Fabrics began as the brainchild of Martin Spector, who was a fabric merchant in Poland. He came to the United States in 1939 and established the first Britex Fabrics in the heart of New York City’s garment district, and then decided to relocate when he and his wife Lucy fell in love with San Francisco. The store officially opened its doors in San Francisco’s Union Square in 1952.”
