Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions – Sellers

 What is a Textile Broker?

 A Textile Broker is an individual who brings a buyer and a seller of immediately available and/or off-price fabrics together.      The broker sells immediately available leftover fabrics from fashion designers, garment manufacturers, fabric converters,

 jobbers or importers. A Fabric Broker never owns any fabric inventory, and works entirely on a commission basis. The commission is paid either by the buyer or the seller. The commission is either a percentage of the total sale or a preset amount per yard sold.
