The year was 1929, and Franco Scalamandre begins Scalamandre Silks in New York City. During this time there was a movement to restore historic homes in the United States, and Scalamandre was in the middle of it. In fact, that same year, Scalamandre was contracted by the famous William Randolph Hearst to work on his home. This began a tradition of Scalamandre working on high profile projects including the White House, the home of Mary Todd Lincoln, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In 2017, Scalamandre merged with Stark Fabrics. Today, Stark and Old World Weavers are a part of the Scalamandre family of fine home furnishings.
