We are an interior furnishings company that designs and distributes fabric, trimmings, and wallpapers together with custom window treatments and drapery hardware.
Stout Textiles was founded in 1927 by brothers Charles and Harry Stout. Four generations later, the company is still in family hands and is located only a few minutes from its original birthplace of Philadelphia. It began as an upholstery supply shop during the early 20th century in center city Philadelphia but quickly changed its offerings to appeal to the rapid rise of interior decorating.
Over the last several decades, we have expanded our company through acquisitions and diversifying our product offerings. While designs and styles have changed over time, our core values never have. Integrity, fairness, and approachability are the guiding factors in everything we do.
A Brief History of Stout
In 1979 Stout acquires S.J. Battler, a fabric competitor from Cleveland, OH. The strategic purchase allowed servicing of central and western states more effectively by lower shipping costs and faster delivery.
