Where art meets industry

If you’ve got something to make, Globe Dye Works is the place to make it. A former yarn-dying factory, Globe Dye has been transformed into a community of artists, artisans and fabricators. Globe Dye has everything from 500 square-foot artist studios to 30,000+ square-foot production facilities. Located in the Frankford section of Philadelphia, Globe Dye Works is convenient to I-95, the SEPTA Elevated train and Center City.
