About us


We are located in Brooklyn, New York. All our products ship from our warehouse in Red Hook, Brooklyn, New York.

We offer PPE donations to people in need.

We are a marketplace for equipment. Most of our products ship for free in all of the continental US. We encourage protective equipment manufacturers and merchants to list their products on our website.

It is particularly difficult to find supplies these days. It is even harder to spread the word about our products and availability as most ad networks ban all advertisement for Personal Protective Equipment. 

The best way to help us is to help spread the word about our company who manufactures and has masks, hand sanitizer, face shields, gowns and other products in stock in Brooklyn, NY.

A few thank you letters we have receive from customers that particularly touched us

From Anita C. , Jun 19 2020:


I worried that you would not fill my order because it seems impossible. YOU DID IT!! THANK UTHANKUTHANKU! My 90yr+ mother; a life long nurse is cared for in her home by her children. Her only sister died in NJ nursing home from corvid19. Sad to say her children made the best choice they could. My brother in-law is life long EMT air ambulance pilot and I got a neice in nursing now. My family members have a long list of service in all branches of the military and my dad earned a Silver Star. We thank you and your team for helping us.

Hi, George. I got my second box of much needed products in record time! I cannot express my gratitude enough for you and your employees for helping keep our families safe. Even my precious Abigail Rose (my six pound Yorkie) is grateful. Thank you once again George!!!”

  • Lynne, S

Hello, and thanks so much for handling this issue well and quickly. I received my new shipment over the weekend; in a box this time, wrapped in so much packing tape that any would-be thief would have a tough time breaking in quickly! It made me feel a lot better about the whole thing. 

Anyway, I have my masks now and am taking them in to work with me tomorrow. And when I need more, I’ll order them from you.

Again, thanks. I’m impressed by your professionalism and kindness. We all need that now, more than ever.”

“Received my order. Very fast delivery . So happy I found a company that I can get the Lysol products with no problem. The last company I ordered from was a total scam. I wanted it for the COVID and also flu season is on its way. Thanks to your company I’m all set now. Take care and stay safe.”

  • Barbara, K

“George: 

 Received my order today in the mail.  Everything was OK and I am just that much more safe from the COVID19 Corona Virus.  
 The process of receiving this was very fast and I am happy it got here in such a speedy time frame.
I will continue to look at your emails and I always will have a hug for the Brooklyn Equipment owner and employees.  Such a winning team.”

  • Walter, H.

“Brooklyn Textiles,

Thank you so much for this quick response! I must say I am quite impressed with your customer service. I purchased through Brooklyn Textiles because it was recommended to me through a family member who had been looking for wipes for her business and I must say I understand why she recommended you. I will be sure purchase again through Brooklyn Textiles in the future. Thank you!”

  • Mari, R.

Our team

George A Popescu

George Popescu, Founder and CEO

As an entrepreneur George decided to help as he can with the crisis. He therefore started a company to deliver warm bread ( link ) and this present company, Brooklyn Textiles. George has been using his skills to manufacture products in Brooklyn, New York, using stay at home seamstresses, which was what was needed during this time. 

We started with face masks and we expect to add other products on an as-needed basis.

George most recently was the founder of Wave Soul, a surf travel company. The Cov19 Pandemic has put his travel company on a pause. 

 

Previously, he was also the co-founder and CEO of Lampix, a table-top augmented reality company in New York. He took the company from a concept to the sales of hundred of devices. Among 50 other AR/VR companies who participated from worldwide, Lampix won the best AR/VR startup from the SXSW festival! Lampix raised 40912 ETH ( about $14.2mil at raise time) in August 2017. The ICO lead to the building of the PIX platform. https://www.pixtoken.co/ PIX is the world's first decentralized human-in-the-loop platform for image sourcing, labeling, and detection to enable the next generation of computer vision applications.

George is also the founder, CEO and Editor in Chief of Lending Times, a media company in the online lending space. Lending Times has won the Best Journalist Coverage from the LendIt Industry Awards on Tuesday, March 9th, 2017. The other nominees were Reuters, Business Insider, deBanked, Bankless Times and Tradestreaming. The award was earned for “the journalist who has provided the most insightful and original coverage about lending innovation and fintech.” He started recently Blockchain Times on the same model.

Previously George have been a partner in LunaCap Ventures, a hybrid early stage growth capital fund. And he founded Block X Ventures, a boutique blockchain investment bank in which he raised capital for a dozen projects.

George sold and exited his most successful company, Boston Technologies (BT) group, in 2014. BT was a technology, market maker, high-frequency trading and inter-broker broker-dealer in the FX Spot, precious metals and CFDs space company. George was the Founder and CEO and he boot-strapped it from $0 to a $20+ million in revenue without any equity investment. BT was the #1 fastest growing company in Boston in 2011 according to the Boston Business Journal and the only company being in top 10 fastest in 2012-13 as it was #5 in 2012. BT has been on the Inc. 500/5000 list of fastest growing companies in the US for 4 years in a row ( #143, #373, #897 and #1270). After the sale George was Head-of-Strategy for Currency Mountain ( www.currencymountain.com ), a USD 100 million+ holding company focused on retail and medium institutional currencies.

Over the last 10 years, George founded multiple companies in online lending, craft beer brewery, exotic sports car rental space, hedge funds, peer-reviewed scientific journal, etc. George advised 30+ early stage start-ups in different fields. George was also a mentor at MIT’s Venture Mentoring Services and Techstars Fintech in NY.

Previously George obtained 3 Master's Degrees: a Master's of Science from MIT working on 3D printing, a Master’s in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Supelec, France and a Master's in Nanosciences from Paris XI University. My scientific career led to about 10 publications and patents.

On the business side, Boston Business Journal has named George in the top 40 under 40 in 2012 in recognition of his business achievements.

George is originally from Romania and grew up in Paris, France.
