Escolys is a leading manufacturer of jacquard interior fabrics. The company was founded in 1958 by Richard Depraetere. Today the third generation has made its entry in the family business.
The company owes its name, given in the year 2000, to the confluence of two rivers which have embraced our textile region for centuries: the Scheldt and the Leie – “l’Escaut et la Lys” – a symbol for the merging of quality and creativity.
Our European style heritage as well as its contemporary interpretations inspire us season after season. Next to innovative and inspirational, we also – and in particular – want to be seen as commercially attractive, and thus appealing to a broad market. In this sense, we regard our creativity as functional, for the furniture manufacturer, the wholesaler, the retail trade, and also, at the end of the day, for the consumer, thanks to flawless product quality.
Our product quality is assessed by accredited testing laboratories throughout Europe. Our furniture fabrics therefore always meet the comprehensive BS2543 standard.
Our product range has broadened over the years.
We weave upholstery, drapery and seamless wall covering. Our segment of upholstery has been strenghtened by adding action proof fabrics , a stock programme and a collection of high-end fabrics with a more luxureous appeal.
The company has always firmly believed in the importance of product quality, excellent customer service and the value of "made in Belgium".
