Co_history_01
Maharam was founded in 1902 by
Louis Maharam, a Russian immigrant.

Through the generations, Maharam
evolved from a source of theatrical textiles
for costume and set design in the 1940s
to a pioneer of performance-driven textiles
for commercial interiors in the '60s.

The Maharam Design Studio governs
the research, engineering, design,
and development of textiles for

Balancing an appreciation of history
with innovative interdisciplinary
exploration, the studio focuses on
