The storied tale of Kravet Inc.’s 100-year-old history starts in 1903, when Samuel Kravet arrived in New York City from Russia. With a passion for men’s fashion and luxury tailoring, he started selling buttons, elastics and zippers for apparel. He would often visit the luxurious homes of his clients, which inspired a new endeavor: trimmings, tassels and tie-backs for the home.
Woven together through the years thread by thread with people, places and passion, Kravet has grown in size, all the while remaining true to its founding principles: extraordinary quality, unwavering integrity, and uncompromising commitment to the industry.
Five generations and 100 years later, these same principles continue to act as Kravet’s guiding light. At Kravet, style curators search far and wide to supply only the finest, most luxurious and unique product in the world.
Every idea and vision at Kravet is stitched together, each piece an essential fiber in our vibrant tapestry, to tell one story.
Along the way, Kravet has expanded to include a distinct global style, exhibited perfectly by brands Lee Jofa, GP & J Baker and Brunschwig & Fils.
Kravet’s commitment to innovation continues with its latest venture, CuratedKravet.com, where designers can find an edited selection of finished products, available for an easy shopping experience and in some cases shipping within days of placing an order.
On this centennial celebration, Kravet honors its history and looks to its future – which is as bright as the brilliant people who make Kravet what it is today.
