Furniture Today: “Textile execs turn attention to color, innovation and customer service”

November 16, 2023

HIGH POINT – Along with fabric, leather, and trim introductions, upholstery buyers at this week’s Interwoven Textile Fair by ITA (International Textile Alliance) are garnering firsthand knowledge about new initiatives their textile partners are planning for coming months…

Regal Fabrics’ Steve Kahan, president, said that a new 100,000-square-foot building is a physical realization of the company’s commitment to its customers. The facility houses Regal’s design department and headquarters showroom, a custom print department, sample production, corporate offices, and a new warehouse with state-of-the-art machinery and storage for delivery efficiency and continued future expansion.

“Regal was one of the only fabric suppliers that remained steady in bringing out new product and shipping rolls throughout the pandemic, and that’s the way we run,” Kahan said. “We are a family-owned and operated company that treats our customers like family. Our directors of design, operations, and merchandising have been with the company an average of 18 years and that’s a wealth of experience working for our customers.

“We began offering digital printing capabilities at the height of the pandemic — this year, we’ve added a second Mimaki wide format printer and are expanding our printable base cloths to more than 30 interesting weaves, textures, and plains. … We’re always on the lookout for novel ways to provide beautiful fabrics at a value, and we’re leveraging our exclusive partnerships with weaving mills worldwide to combine expert craftsmanship with new capabilities, reflected in our unique offerings.

“It’s all about curation, customization, and comfort,” he concluded. “Buyers will see a range of qualities, designs, and prices that offer curated design at different levels.”
