NEW YORK—Swavelle Fabrics a major converter and mill owner, has decided to stop selling contract fabrics directly to the A&D community including hospitality designers, specifiers and purchasing agents.

Instead, Swavelle will work through its network of 30 plus contract wholesalers who now service the hospitality community. This network includes Arc-Com, Carnegie, Maharam and Kravet.
In a statement on its website, Swavelle said it will honor all open orders or pending quotes for hospitality jobs.

The move was effective as of October 1 and the announcement is posted on the Swavelle website.
Swavelle has been in business since 1982 and is a major converter and mill owner.
Jeff Thomases, the founder stepped back in 2020 as CEO, making way for the next generation of the Thomases family to run the business, namely Greg Thomases CEO and David Thomases, Jeff’s two sons.
Jeff continues as Founder and Chairman but is not involved in day-to-day business activity.
Swavelle executives were not available for further comment.
