Kravet is a story of innovation and global brand expansion that evolved through the successful leadership of key people in the Kravet Family. The inception of Kravet Fabric began in 1903 when its’ founder, Samuel Kravet, immigrated to the United States from Russia and settled in New York City. With his sewing machine and talent of tailoring, Samuel Kravet eventually opened a trimming store in 1918 with his four sons, Morris, Sam, Sol, and Hy. In 1930, S. Kravet and Sons began to sell trimmings and fabrics exclusively to the interior design trade. This shift of selling directly to businesses instead of directly to the consumer is the business model that Kravet still follows today. As the profession of interior design grew in New York City, Kravet Fabric opened its first showroom in 1938. In 1949, Kravet added a new leader to the Kravet empire; Samuel’s grandson, Larry Kravet. Under this new leadership, Kravet began acquiring new high-end fabric brands such as Lee Jofa, Groundworks Fabrics, G.P. & J Baker, Monkwell Fabrics, Mullberry Home, and the most recent acquisition, Brunswig & Fils Fabrics. Each division of Kravet adds to the sophistication and unique style of the overall product line.
