Valencia, Spain—As of May 2024, Hijos de Antonio Ferre, SA a linen and natural fiber upholstery fabric producer since 1914, has made an agreement with King Textiles, LLC. to stock and distribute a limited range of its products in the USA according to Silvia Sanz, Export Manager, Antonio Ferre. 

“We have started to work with King Textiles to distribute all our upholstery fabrics in USA,” Sanz says. Previously, Ferre had a traditional distribution arrangement with a U.S. sales agency with no stock available in the USA. Under the new formula, Ferre will have stock in the USA at King’s warehouse in the hopes this will increase sales with the more rapid delivery from King as opposed to FOB delivery from Ferre in Spain.

Matthew Underwood, King Textiles President could not be reached for comment as he was still traveling overseas. He was last seen at Proposte in Como, Italy earlier this month having lunch at Harry’s Bar. Ferre was also an exhibitor at the recently concluded Proposte.

Antonio Ferre is a fourth-generation family owned vertical mill with a 250,000 square foot factory and 140 employees.

King is based in Archdale, North Carolina. It is a distributor and importer of residential upholstery fabrics in the $19-$28 price range. King also has a showroom at 312 Hamilton Street and participates in Interwoven, the US based fabric exhibition.
