Len Gliner, Former Owner of Jacquard Fabrics, 83

July 6, 2020

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.—Len Gliner, who ran Jacquard Fabrics Inc. for nearly four decades, died here June 13.

He was 83. Gliner was born Oct. 1, 1936.

Jacquard Fabrics was a small upholstery mill in Lakewood, New Jersey, that Gliner sold in March 2018 to The Pearlstine Group.

Jacquard Fabrics had annual sales of about $6-$7 million at the time of the purchase. Gliner had owned the mill since 1980, but retired a few years ago to Palm Beach, Florida.

His daughter, Michelle Gliner Rogers, continued to be sales manager but has since left the company. Under Gliner’s watch, Jacquard Fabrics became a resource to many high-end fabric jobbers.

It sold custom woven product direct to the hotel industry. For example, The Venetian Las Vegas was decorated with Jacquard Fabrics.

The original mill was founded in Paterson, New Jersey, in 1937, as a tie-silk manufacturer and moved to its current location in 1987. Before Gliner purchased Jacquard Fabrics, he was in the fabric jobber business from 1962 to 1980. Prior, he worked for his father in the custom drapery and slipcover business.

He is survived by his daughter, Michelle, and his wife, Donna.
