When we think of summer decor, usually the first thing that comes to mind is coastal or nautical motifs. Throw in the occasional marine animal print and you have “summer”. This year though, the decor trends have changed slightly. One of the hottest summer decor trends this year is something you have probably seen a million times before and paid it no mind – a cabana stripe. Yup, that’s it. A simple stripe.

Throw pillows, table cloths, placemats, beach towels, tote bags, umbrellas, & so much more.  This classic stripe is EVERYWHERE. It’s simple, classic, & timeless. The cabana stripe can be in any color, but most common tends to be a nice black and white or a royal blue and white combo. The stripe can be small or large and it most commonly runs vertically. These stripes can be seen in almost every store you walk into – H & M, Home Goods, Pottery Barn, Target, Walmart, Pier 1, Kohl’s, the list goes on and on and on. It is also featured in more magazines than I can count on my 2 hands. Have you seen the latest issue of HGTV magazine?

I am a lover of stripes in general, but I absolutely love a good cabana stripe. It works year round, not just in the summer, and it can really bring life to a room. I prefer black and white everything, but this year we decided to branch out a bit at Fabric Textile Products, Inc. and offer a very wide variety of cabana stripe linens. Our 3 inch cabana stripe is printed on Milliken Signature Polyester and then in turn made into pillow covers, tablecloths, & table runners. We currently offer  12 colors and are always adding more to the mix!

Available in  Black, Navy, Royal, Pale Pink, Fuchsia, Red, Gray, Yellow, Khaki, Orange, Turquoise, & Lime Green.

Below I have included some of the fabulous cabana stripe products I have while shopping the internet! Check them out!

#TransformationTuesday: The Jump from Napkinsonline to Fabric Textile Products, Inc.

transformation tuesday

I am obsessed with social media. I love sharing my pictures on Instagram, keeping friends up to date with my Facebook status daily, and tweeting about whatever comes to my mind. Come on, though. What 23 year old isn’t?! My day always begins the same. Turn off the alarm, get my glasses on quickly so I can find my way out of bed without falling, and swipe right to unlock my iPhone. A wave of emails, statuses, photos, tweets, and whatnot floods my brain for a few moments before I start my morning routine. While scrolling along this morning, I noticed the daily hashtag on almost every post I saw- #transformationtuesday. A light went off and the idea for today’s post came about!

“Transformation Tuesday”.

“Yes.”

“That’s it. I got it!”

Fabric Textile Products, Inc. is the place I call home Monday through Friday. I assist with shipping orders, taking care of our customers, managing social media accounts, shopping for new products, sourcing new vendors, and whatever else may come my way, but things weren’t always this way. Believe it or not, up until 2 years ago this company was a just a 1 woman operation.

Flashback to 2007.

We began selling hemstitch napkins as Napkinsonline on the internet. Our products were well-liked and in high-demand by both commercial and home buyers, so we began to offer matching table linens. After a few successful years, we started selling leftover fabric scraps given to us by our sister company, Something Different Linen, Inc. and business really began to boom! From there on out, we sourced our own products and sought out the help of various vendors. Before we knew it, we had outgrown the little space we once occupied and needed more hands on deck.

Flash forward to 2013.

EDITED LOGO march 15

I joined the Fabric Textile Products, Inc. team fresh out of college as an assistant. The job had become too much for just 1 person and we were planning a move. By this time our product catalog included not only hemstitch table linens and fabrics, but also a wide array of textiles for the home. The keyword here is growth. We officially dropped the name Napkinsonline and became Fabric Textile Products, Inc. – a subsidiary of Something Different Linen, Inc. We launched a fresh website, left our small crammed space and settled quickly into a new larger location on the other end of town. And here we are now!

In just 2 years Fabric Textile Products, Inc. has transformed from a small internet operation into a full-fledged supplier of fabric and textile goods for all. Our inventory grows daily, our customer base reaches farther locations, and our name is recognized by so many. The only place to go from here is up!

Warmest Regards Always,

Joanna
