“…we have never looked upon ourselves as ‘dealers in textiles.’ We regard textiles simply as one means of artistic expression…” — Theodore Greeff, President, Greeff Fabrics, Inc.
MAKER: Greeff Fabrics, Inc was founded in the US by Theodore Greeff in 1933 to make a wide range of mostly traditional style interior fabrics and wallcoverings, grouped in collections, for high-end interior designers. Jackson’s book points to Marion Dorn, John Little, Dan Rasmassen, and Dagmar Wilson as key designers from the 1940s and after.
