Fabric Specialists and Real Artisans at Work

Over the years, Adrette has hand-selected our suppliers who provide the very best designer fabrics, trims, and drapery hardware, as well as our artisans and fabricators who apply premier craftsmanship to create stunning pieces of art.

We recommend only the most suitable textiles for your application, stable fabrics from quality sources that will drape and perform well for years to come. You may even select fibers that were grown sustainably, without the use of chemicals or pesticides, then made into certified organic fabrics for truly healthy living environments.

Adrette’s seamstresses have decades of experience creating custom draperies and shades, bedding, cushions, and pillows. They understand the characteristics of each material, how the textures and weights interact, and how to cut fabrics so that they will hang properly. This emphasis on consistency and quality in Adrette’s custom fabrication process usually requires many steps of hand stitching, tacking or basting – we call this our tailoring process – until your custom creations are just perfect.

We are committed to providing you with the finest quality products, whether it is custom finished hardware, hand-painted motifs on fabric, or hand-carved drapery poles. Our artisans will create something unique and beautiful for you, right here in the USA.

Call Marlys or Jens with any questions and to schedule an in-home design consultation.
