Who is Emdee?
We are a women owned and run business that was established in 1994 by two best friends, 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 us ever since. In June 2022, Deepa left the company to persue other ventures and Jenny became the new co-owner of Emdee.
From the very beginning, we have set high standards for our products and customer service. Our selection of textiles and offerings has always been based on two guidelines: 1. Is it a high quality product at a reasonable price? 2. Is this a product that we would put in our own homes?
It is important for us to have a good relationship with our customers and to create a synergy between the product, ourselves and our customers. We feel that we can be most important to a retailer who holds the same values as our own, so we 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 that we feel are important to offer.
2019 marked our 25th year in business. Over those 25 years, we had grown to be one of the leading importers, manufacturers and distributors of finished home textiles in the US Market. We specialize in Unique Home Textiles, with drapery panels being our largest selling category, however, we also offer products such as decorative pillows, throws, table linens and designer fabrics.
In addition to our own luxury textile line, we have the ability to do private label development for catalogs, retail stores and hospitality.
Our curated collection is a mix of domestically sourced and internationally imported textiles. We have a large selection of ready-made drapery panels that are produced overseas to keep them at a reasonable price point. Although our ready-made panels are made overseas, we work with our mills to ensure that we offer the same quality and details as our custom drapery panels.
In recent years, our custom window treatment business has grown exponentially and we have been lucky to partner with a local workroom to offer complete custom window treatment services. So, in addition to custom draperies, we can also offer roman shades, cornices, valances etc.
We have also recently partnered with a local hardware company in Georgia which has allowed us to offer our designers a one-stop shopping experience, where they can order their custom window treatments and drapery hardware all in one place.
Coming up on our 28th year, we are so grateful for all of the wonderful clients we have gained over the years, many of whom have turned into great friends. The many places we have been and people we have met because of this company is something that we are truly thankful for. Thank you for stopping by to get to know Emdee!
