Tools of the Trade

It takes space to create

Bolts of fabric and lining take up space. There should be order and organization within the workroom that creates an effective workflow. We use standard systems of receiving, labeling, and categorizing customers own materials to keep track of supplies. A vigorous inventory and staging sections throughout the workroom allows for progress checks. This process starts with the initial phone call from the Retail client or Interior Designer. The paper flow is as important as the manufacturing flow.  There must be strick organizing standards used that effectively uses the time and space.

Work orders 

Our process includes formal work orders and change orders. Nothing in the workroom is taken for granted. All orders include pertinent customer information with fabric samples, direction of fabric, fabric company, etc. All change orders must accompany an accurate description of the change and current signature from the client or Designer. No exceptions.

Special Orders

All special orders are handled on a particular time line. Special orders consist of difficult fabrics or two story windows. They also include:

  • Multi-width Drapery panels
  • Motorized Hardware
  • Motorized Shades
