Hello and Thank You For Stopping By!

Better Than Jam textiles are Hand; Printed, Dyed, and items Made in Brooklyn NYC by Karin Persan since 2007. The STORE, open in Bushwick, Brooklyn since February 2010, has always hosted the handmade works of local makers and artisans beside the Better Than Jam line.  Along the way we started to carry supplies that relate to what we make and the workshops that are taught here.

Outgrowing the original location at The Loom, BTJ moved to 20 Grattan Street October 2015 to expand the STUDIO and realize a dream of running a communal work space. However since COVID19 outbreak, a necessary downsize forced a move, just down the street to 10 Grattan (June 2020). The new location has a small showroom and large studio but it is no longer communal. The STUDIO will continue to host a variety of textile based workshops. The STORE has moved online for now (see below). In the future I will continue to travel for markets and open up the showroom from time to time.

Due to COVID19: Showroom is closed to browsers. Please shop online.  If you need to see items in person or try on items for fit, you may schedule an appointment for one person at a time one day ahead of time. Many items are not displayed due to size constraint, so to see all there is offered, head to the online shop.

Workshops are now available as private or quarantine buddy booking only, but at a discounted rate. Must wear a mask during session and have temperature taken.

NEW Showroom/Studio Location: 10 Grattan St. Brooklyn NY  11206
