Harsey and Associates was founded in 1979 becoming the first company to import silk fabrics for the U.S. home furnishing’s industry under the Orient Express Silk Collection identity specializing in woven silk fabrics from India and Thailand. Steven Harsey Textiles began where Orient Express left off — with high-end exclusive decorative fabrics, not just in silk. . . always primarily focused on natural fiber fabrics.
In the mid-1990’s several trips to Europe led to discovery of unique weaving mills in Italy, France, Belgium, and Germany. Working with our exclusive designs from leading artists around the world and with the mill’s own archives, new patterns and colors are constantly being created to separate our collection from the large mass-market distributors.
The collection continues to grow as Steven and Rosemary travel the world looking for that special piece of art, a wonderful new textile construction, and new fashion leading colors to set the trends, not just follow them.
