Hi! I’m Queenora. I founded Finer Fabrics by Queenora to give black representation on custom fabric because of the lacking identity I found in searching for fabric representative of the black community, culture and its people.
It started from me learning to sew in 2014.I was looking for professional clothes for a new job and experienced a difficult time finding clothes that I liked and suited my body. While looking on Pinterest for outfit ideas to camouflage certain parts of my body, I came upon a sewing blogger who handmade a dress that I fell in love with. From that point, I committed myself to learn to sew because who else can make clothes for my body better than me :)
From these years of sewing for myself and close family/friends, I have seen how underrepresented the black/African American community is within the custom fabric world. As a black woman, I know too well how important it is to see yourself in all facets of life - including on fabric. With Finer Fabrics by Queenora, I aim to help bring representation to black and brown people and start a conversation on issues within the black community. Pre-orders are held on a monthly basis.
