“Buy Local: Textile & Fashion Companies Around East Falls,”


Click here just before 7 PM on Wednesday to join this Zoom event!


Textile historian Jade Papa will present a Zoom program, “Buy Local: Textile & Fashion Companies Around East Falls,” for the East Falls Historical Society, on Wednesday, April 27 at 7:00 pm. The program is free and open to all: the Zoom link is posted on the EFHS website April 26 and emailed to members.

Our area was at one time bursting with textile manufacturers and retailers selling homegrown goods to eager customers.  Sadly, they’ve mostly disappeared.  But, their legacy lives on in the archive of the Textile & Costume Collection on the East Falls campus of Thomas Jefferson University.  Join Jade Papa, curator of the collection, as she uncovers the stories and showcases objects from these local manufacturers. She brings to her work not only extensive experience in object preservation, identification, and research, but an intense curiosity about how these objects shaped and were shaped by the people and cultures who wore the garments and created the textiles. For questions about the program, please email
