  Frequently Asked Questions – Buyers

      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 pre-set amount per

      yard sold.
