Asian-Owned Sewing Companies & Businesses

There are so many independent sewing companies and businesses nowadays that it’s hard to keep track of them all! If you are looking to support Asian-owned sewing companies and businesses with your sewing-related purchases, this list is for you. We’ve organized the list by country, and tried to note whether or not their business is primarily online or a physical store.

If you are a business owner and would like to be added to this list, please reach out to us at asiansewistcollective(at)gmail(dot)com.  Please note, this list is focused on businesses who are geared toward providing items and services for sewists such as fabrics, notions, hardware, classes, one-on-one instruction. We hope to publish a separate list of Asian-owned retail businesses that offer handmade and sewn goods in the near future.

Looking for a broader list of BIPOC & ally crafting vendors? We suggest Pink Mimosa by Jacinta’s Shut Up and Sew Vendor/Store List.
