The LA Fashion District is home to the largest selection of textiles and notions in the United States.
There are nearly 200 wholesale and retail textile stores selling trim, beading and fabric, crafts and home decor. Shoppers can find nearly every type of fabric, running the gamut from novelty to exotic silks and European upholstery. Prices range from 99 cents up to hundreds of dollars per yard.
Designers, stylists and crafters all rely on the textiles and resources of the LA Fashion District, including textile tradeshows held in the California Market Center.
Textile and notion stores are generally centered within four blocks, from 8th Street down to Olympic Boulevard, between Maple Avenue and San Julian Street.
A directory of fabric and notions stores in the district can be found here.
