KLS fabrics are printed in New Jersey and Pennsylvania; their pillows made in Industry City, Brooklyn.
Most KLS fabrics are made to order and delivered in 3 to 5 weeks. As with all fabrics made from natural fibers, some variation in the shade of the base cloth is to be expected. This can have subtle effects on the printed colors.
All fabrics are suitable for all kinds of home furnishing, upholstery and window treatments.
