Since Harry Zarin opened the shop in 1936, the thousands of bolts of drapery and upholstery material at Zarin Fabrics have brightened homes and businesses with their elegant designs. Like your family's antique-wig collection, the company is now in its third generation of family ownership, with shelves and walls stocked with a meticulously curated collection of millions of yards of colorful threads. Custom upholstery and window treatment services add personal touches to at-home decor, and foam inserts, intricate patterns, and decorative trimming help crafters will their own fluffy sofas and eye-catching curtains into existence.
Nestled in a charming, mass-transit-friendly corner of the Lower East Side, the shop has also lent its signature fabrics to New York television icons, with set designers for shows such as 30 Rock and Law & Order creating memorable settings for TV episodes out of Zarin's extensive textile resources.
