About Textiles

Since 1991

I’ve been passionate about fashion for as long as I can remember, and I opened my own business to help women find their own individual, independent style (and so I wouldn’t have to wear pantyhose to work). Using my education in Fiber Arts from the University of Iowa, I opened Textiles in 1991 as a fabric store on Linn Street. After 5 years and a move to our present location on the Ped Mall, we transitioned to selling women’s clothing. Our philosophy: Life is too short to be uncomfortable! Comfort has always been important to me—not just the comfort of the clothing itself, but also comfort in your own skin, in who you are, and in what you want to do. At Textiles, we celebrate clothing that gives you that freedom!

Thank you for supporting a local, woman-owned business. We’ll see you soon!
