Stout was started in 1927 by Harry and Charles Stout. Their father had also been in the textile business as a partner in a high-end print house that still exists today. The Stout brothers formed their company after gaining experience working as sales representatives for another textile distributor.
The Company is still in family hands with four members of the fourth generation now actively involved in the business.
Today the Company sells textiles and trimmings sourced from all over the world. Many of our styles and designs are exclusive. We are represented in showrooms throughout the world as well as in most interior design and architectural firms.
Marcus William is a vibrant and exclusive brand, a new addition to The Stout Group. The inspiration behind the brand started with the creation of new designs, techniques and styles in a contemporary and sophisticated way for all areas of the home.
