East Coast Trimming

Recently while in Manhattan sourcing goods for our Marketplace,  we carved out time to wander the aisles of East Coast Trimming in the garment district. East Coast Trimming opened in 2011 amongst storefront after storefront of some of the finest ribbons, lace, trims, buttons, zippers, threads and anything else you can imagine that is an essential component to constructing a garment.

Immediately upon entering you know you are in for an experience!  This is Narnia for trim aficionados!





East Coast Trimming overflows with every imaginable accoutrement needed to create gorgeous sartorial creations or stunning handmade crafts. The day we were there we may have overheard a few Broadway costume designers trying to decide on just the right swath of ribbon.


One can only imagine that any bride in Manhattan with a yearning for a one-of-a-kind dress heads straight to this establishment to ponder the goods!


Everything is just exquisite!


Of course you can find gorgeous satin, grosgrain, and velvet ribbons in every color you could ever dream of!


You can also find a gorgeous selection of vintage and new flowers


In 2014 East Coast Trimming was chosen to be the new home of Hyman Hendler Ribbon which was established in 1900 and was known to design some of the most beautiful ribbons in the world! So if you are looking for vintage ribbons and trims you will most certainly find it within the Hyman Hendler goods! Visit this magical place and as they say “prepare to be trimspired”!

East Coast Trimming is located at 142 W. 38th Street
