From war-torn Europe, to the streets of New York, to the heartland of America, where a 60-year history in Tulsa was established, the Fabricut story is one of determination and destiny. Joe Finer and Harry Guterman, two survivors of Nazi Germany, became friends through incredible circumstances during World War II. In the early 1950s, they operated a drapery/slipcover store in Huntington, New York. Both had a dream of opening a wholesale fabric operation of their own somewhere in the Southwest. So, on behalf of the duo, Harry Guterman set out to explore locations. He landed in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1954 and was joined by Joe Finer five years later. In 1998, Fabricut implemented an Employee Stock Ownership program, which made all employees owners of the company. This program has contributed to the most rapid growth in Fabricut’s history. Today, Fabricut is one of the largest, most progressive distributors of decorative fabrics in the world; the brand designers depend on!
