Home & Textiles Today Staff -- Home Textiles Today, June 14, 2012
PHILADELPHIA - Kevin O'Brien Studio next month will move into a new space that is triple the size of its current studio.
"We are re-purposing an old movie theater, and inventing and building new equipment that will allow us to make an even greater variety of fabrics," the company reported on its web site. "Since we will make everything there we will have more control over our environmental impact. No fabric will be wasted, scraps will be made into stuffed animals or patchwork quilts."
The new, 9,000-square-foot facility is located at 1412 South Broad St. The scheduled move in date is June 20.
The new space "will allow us to paint larger pieces of fabric making our production more efficient and enable us to grow with the increasing demand for our product," the company said.
