Known for their extensive range of the highest quality cotton fabrics, the Los Angeles based, family-owned company has always been a key destination for LA Textile’s diverse fashion and lifestyle designers and fabric retailers.

For nearly 80 years, Robert Kaufman Co., Inc., has been supplying quality fabrics to the U.S. market. Manufacturers from a wide range of markets (women's, men's and children's wear; sportswear; career and uniform apparel; home and kitchen, among others) have all relied upon their extensive open stock line for their various textile needs.
Further, Robert Kaufman Co. offers a Sourcing and Design Department for those customers whose needs go beyond the stock line and require custom development, as well as custom digital printing and a finished package program.

INSPIRATION & NEW COLLECTIONS
Beyond following their normal trend sources, Robert Kaufman is inspired by their surroundings, communities and customers. Based in Southern California, they’re inspired by the natural beauty and diversity of the state, their surroundings, and customers. The latest RK collections have had a focus on coziness and comfort (ex. French Terry and Flannel) reflecting their current WFH lives, while some upcoming collections embody the optimism that we will hopefully be traveling and gathering again soon (Sunset Studio collection and Athena Gauze from our upcoming April release). They are also continually inspired to add more sustainable fabrics.
