THE HUNTER GATHERER...The search for exciting new products for Wesco Fabrics.

We definitely are "Hunter Gatherers", searching the world for exciting and unique decorative fabrics, furniture & accessories. This is a clipped modern jacquard woven design from one of our best resources from India.
When we first opened our showroom at the Denver Design District we imported Japanese antiques. Our customers knew us for stocking a very eclectic mix with an emphasis on Asian antiques. Marla is checking out a Mizuya kitchen chest from the late 19th at a resource near Kyoto with our agent

We hunted for antique obi at a temple fair in Tokyo.

On freezing cold January we ventured to Holland & France to source European antiques. We found great Eastern European antiques, 18Th century French Armoires, and many other items to sell in the showroom.

Bali & Southeast Asia was our next destination in the search for new products.

Marla found some wonderful woven baskets.

This was one of our favorite places to buy fabulous accessories in Northern Thailand. Sadly, the lady who owned it went out of business! We purchased from her for many years.

Finding great new fabrics is a lot of fun ...and a lot of work!

We found these old drums from Java and thought they would make interesting designer accessories. They were quickly scooped up!

Finding great new furniture is often an adventure in itself. Since we started directly importing furniture we have brought in over 50 containers for our showroom and warehouse!

As in everything in the design world styles and looks change and evolve. We have moved our focus toward more modern designs.

We will soon begin a new hunt for exciting products for Wesco Fabrics, so stay tuned as we will share our discoveries with you!
