Welcome to the TextileX resource guide—a growing effort created to map out and connect the vibrant textile community and resources in the Portland metro area and beyond. The foundation of this guide was built from the diversity of organizations that participate in the Portland TextileX Month festival every October.

Development of and funding for this guide have been provided by Textile Hive with additional funding from a RACC catalyst grant in 2019.

We encourage you to contribute additional resources through this form and consider becoming a member of TextileX to help further develop this resource guide as well as Portland TextileX Month.

Drawing inspiration from many sources, I have built a dedicated clientele. My skill and esteem as a designer and creator of clothing has garnered me collaborations with the Portland Art Museum, Contemporary Craft Museum, and Oregon Ballet Theater. My garments are known for their clean lines, tailored silhouettes, timeless appeal, and impeccable construction.

Hidden Opulence Design House

www.hiddenopulence.com

Hidden Opulence is a Design House that’s focused in Apparel sustainability and upcycling. We enjoy serving both existing apparel brands and the general public. We feel pride especially serving those who identify as Queer, Non-Binary and/or BIPOC. It’s all about meeting you where you are at in your slow fashion and sustainable journey!

We are your one stop shop when it comes to refreshing or perfecting those cherished items in your wardrobe or from your home. Basic tailoring, mending and altering are a part of our core. Projects that have anything to do with heirloom refurbishing, repairing and re-configuring (garment or textile) touch our hearts. Unfortunately at this time, we do not provide pattern rendering or clothing concept development.

Over & Over Style

www.overandoverstyle.com

Over & Over Style is the project of Barbara & Vivian, veterans of the Seattle apparel industry, with shared passions for textile artistry, history & travel, and the transformative power of clothing.  In search of our next act, we came across a treasure trove of vintage kimonos (way too beautiful to be hidden away in moth balls) and decided to give them new life. The result, after hours upon countless hours of designing, deconstructing, washing, steaming, cutting & sewing, is a collection of unique home decor and one-of-a-kind garments in a dazzling array of patterns and colors.
