Textile Discount Outlet
Situated on a quiet residential street in Pilsen, Textile Discount Outlet is easy to stroll past without a second glance. But behind the unassuming, narrow façade, the store unfolds into a 75,000-square-foot wonderland of fabrics, rhinestones, trims, and upholstery accessories, all available at wholesale prices. In addition to the store’s unexpectedly vast depth and selection, part of its allure stems from the diversity of its wares: in room after room, practical, durable textiles, such as waterproof fabrics and leather by the square foot, wait to be discovered. Nearby, more than 100 varieties of delicate satin and organza ribbons, vibrant feathers, and hundreds of vintage-style fabrics attract the eye like a treasure chest or a picture of Teddy Roosevelt in the buff. If customers can’t find the fabric they’re looking for, the store’s textile experts are happy to special order it.
