Being in business since 1921, we've learned a thing or two about the entertainment, event, and display industries. What started as a small, family run business has grown into a national company employing over 250 people in two locations.

Ninety-five years ago we opened our doors on the Lower East Side of Manhattan selling rags. As time went by we expanded to the sale of theatrical fabrics and developed in-house, custom sewing capabilities. We also began carrying various production supplies and stage hardware. Fast forward to today and we're manufacturing custom theatrical and event drapery, backdrops and virtually anything sewn with fabric for venues that range from high school auditoriums to Radio City Music Hall. Our custom service also includes technical project management for the design & installation of curtain, track and projection jobs.

Combine our bi-coastal facilities, hundreds of thousands of yards of in-stock fabrics, plus the expertise of our project managers and you have the quickest turnaround time on the most intricate jobs.

Ask around about our reputation. You'll know you chose the right partner for your production. Our continued growth is the result of the strong relationships we've built with you, our customers.
