Emdee International was established in 1994 out of the aspirations of two women entrepreneurs, Manju Vaswani and Deepa Dharamrup. In 1997, Manju's Daughter, Jenny joined the company for what was supposed to be a temporary job and and has been with them ever since. 

From the very beginning, they set high standards for their products and customer service. They are only interested in selling products that they love and would want in their own homes. It is also important for them to have a relationship with their customers and to create a synergy between the product, themselves and their customers. They feel they can be most important to a retailer who holds the same values as their own, so they go to great lengths to meet the needs of such customers. Custom products, smaller minimums and quick shipments are just a few of the services they feel it is important to offer.

Under their ownership, Emdee has grown to be one of the leading distributors of Unique Home Textiles in the US Market. Their product is globally sourced and includes products made in India, China, Belgium, Italy and even the United States.

Emdee's largest category is drapery panels and they were the first company to bring 10 foot ready-made drapery panels to the US Market.  Emdee also carries decorative pillows, table runners, bedding and fabrics by the yard.  Recently Emdee has partnered with a US based lighting company to offer a new collection of lamp shades featuring Emdee fabrics.  

Although Emdee likes to keep up with the trends, their consistent theme is quality and their look can be described as elegant and timeless.
