We're Shannon Fabrics, a fabric wholesaler that believes fostering meaningful relationships is just as important as selling fabric. Here at Shannon Fabrics, we’re more than just a fabric wholesaler. We’re a community of employees, fabric retailers, distributors, manufacturers and consumers, all Making The World A Softer Place™.
We believe there’s a better way to sell fabric — transparency, honesty and ethical business decisions are the backbone of our company. We’re revolutionizing the wholesale buying experience from first contact with our stellar customer service team members, to our educational materials and extended community of fabric enthusiasts. Talking fabric is what we do best, and we’re excited to help you get inspired and collaborate with you on all levels.
Pull up a chair, let’s chat — welcome to the Shannon Fabrics family.
You can say fabric is in our blood.
My father Ebrahim Pairavi, a Persian immigrant who grew up around my grandfather’s fabric business in Iran, established Shannon Fabrics in 1995. Five years later I joined the family business, and in July 2000, we opened a new retail store in Los Angeles. Seeing a bigger opportunity in the wholesale side of things, we shifted the direction of our company from retail to wholesale in the following three years.
Fast forward to today, and Shannon Fabrics has become the premiere go-to source for all types of plush fabrics. We've earned the trust of our customers, suppliers and other industry leaders with our friendly, no-nonsense approach and consistently strong integrity.
Shannon Fabrics imports and distributes several different types of fabric, including super-soft Cuddle® minky plush fabrics, fabulous faux furs, Embrace® double gauze fabrics, terry cloth and other novelty fabrics. We don’t rest on our laurels, and we take pride in being an innovative and creative market trailblazer. In addition to licensing agreements with Robert Kaufman, Premier Prints and other industry leaders, we work with independent and in-house designers to develop and create some of the best fabric collections available.
Our signature Cuddle® collection has become a household name over the years, and we supply fabric to many industries including retail fabric stores, quilt shops, apparel manufacturers, home décor, bedding, spa, costumes, pet products and accessories.
We're not interested in closing a sale and moving on — we create meaningful, value-driven relationships with our customers that span decades. Our superior selection, quality products and top-notch customer service remain the cornerstones on which our business is based. Shannon Fabrics understands the urgency of our customers' needs, and we maintain an in-stock position of over 1 million yards of our expansive collection at all times.
We've proudly watched Shannon Fabrics grow and evolve for over twenty years. And together, my father and I continue to run our business with passion while maintaining a loyal, family environment for our employees and customers. As a united team, we’ve made it a constant practice to run an honest business, with a win-win mentality for everyone.
Your trust and business means the world to us, and you can count on our entire team to treat you with all the care and attention you deserve.
—Arvin Pairavi, President
