Once each month, the BF+DA invites a sustainable textile vendor to come present their materials and processes. Join us for July’s Textile Tuesday with Shokay.

Learn about traceable supply chains and the versatility of yak – a fiber warmer than wool and more breathable than cashmere. For year-round fabrics, Shokay blends yak with in transition cotton, lyocell, bamboo, recycled PET, and more. Shokay offers sustainable yarns and fabrics to conscientious designers, with no minimums and fast delivery.
