Welcome to Worldwide Textiles
Worldwide Textiles was conceived while waiting for a taxi on a dirty side street in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2013. Since then our passion for experiencing other cultures and traveling has given us the chance to source beautiful handmade textiles and ethnic goods to provide you with a piece of markets worldwide. We believe in economically supporting local communities by buying their handmade goods and sharing them with you.
Each of our pieces is completely unique and one of a kind as many of the weaving techniques are no longer being passed down through families in village communities. Our inventory is a mix of newly designed items made by repurposing vintage textiles found in different countries, as well as wholly preserved vintage items and new items found in street markets. It is our goal to send you a little piece of each market we visit and provide a greater understanding and appreciation for artisans around the globe.
