CUT & SEW WITH HTX SEWN GOODS
The home of HTX Sewn Goods, an initiative of Connect Community, is the Gulfton Textile Lab & Entrepreneurship Center. We offer industrial sewing training, prototyping, cut and sew production and packaging.
We pride ourselves on creating liveable wages for our sewists, quality craftsmanship and care for the fabrics we use and the objects we create.
Working with our partner cut and sew shops, we support designers throughout the process - from initial concepts to creating patterns, prototyping and then, finally, to producing small batch apparel and non-apparel items in Houston's Gulfton neighborhood.
Designers choose to work with us because:
1. Sewing is a skilled craft that takes time to master and sewists deserve pay that allows them to support their families and build wealth.
2. We are local which means more oversight of the design process and production.
3. We have a network of small businesses that we partner with for sample-making, screen printing, and technical sewing.
4. With a focus on supporting local sewists and small businesses, we continually reinvest dollars into the immigrant community of Gulfton as well as the larger Houston community.
