Regal Fabrics to launch Mastercraft, pick up Hafner business 

Middleton, Mass. – Upholstery fabric house Regal Fabrics has acquired exclusive rights to produce and sell the Mastercraft novelty tapestry designs for furniture, including best sellers such as Route 66, Rue de Paris, and Fly Away Home.

Steve Kahan, president of Regal Fabrics, said that 14 patterns have been woven for introduction at June Showtime and more are on the way. “We are happy to have the chance to bring these great designs back to market” said Kahan. “We’ll be reaching a more diverse customer base and offering shipping availability from either Middleton or China to China.”

Regal, which produces jacquard and high-end Krelan fabrics, called the agreement “a natural fit.”

“Regal has been designing and weaving beautiful novelty tapestries for 20 years, said Herb Kahan, ceo of Regal Fabrics. “Now we can offer our own vast selection as well as provide our customers with continuity on the Mastercraft bestsellers.”

With the deal, Regal becomes the producer of the residential furniture fabrics formerly produced by Hafner, Inc.

“We regret that market conditions have led to the closing of Hafner’s production facilities in North America. We are pleased, however, to have made this agreement with Regal Fabrics that will allow our customers to continue to purchase the items they are running in their lines,” said Adrian Spoerry, president of Hafner, noting, “Any other companies offering Hafner designs will be in violation of our copyrights, which we intend to enforce.”

Regal has started contacting select Hafner customers to review their needs so that early production can be focused on the most important items. Customers seeking Hafner fabrics are encouraged to contact Trish Horgan at Regal Fabrics, trish@regalfabrics.com or (978) 777-6868 ext. 20.
