The latest in a series of acquisitions that have included Quatrain, Kerry Joyce, Gérard, and Rose Cumming, Kenneth Meyer brings to the Dessin Fournir catalog a large selection of to-the-trade trims and accessories, a vast custom capability, and access to high-quality European imports.  Originating in pre-war Frankfurt, Kenneth Meyer was formally established in San Francisco in 1938.  At the helm for over 30 years, former owner Hildegard Kleinen purchased the family-owned company, channeling her passion for textiles into developing "jewelry" by way of luxurious trims.

With the intentions of preserving the distinct art forms and old-world craftsmanship developed during Kenneth Meyer's 80+ year history, Dessin Fournir Companies' purchase ensure Kenneth Meyer's survival into the next generation.

According to Dessin Fournir, operations have already transitioned to their headquarters in Plainville, KS.
