American Family Owned & Operated for 4 Generations!

Our Story

Lewis and Sheron Textiles is a four generation, American owned and operated textile company located in the Westside Design District of Atlanta. Founded in 1944, our name and reputation have been forged the hard way, and with that dedication we have built lifelong relationships with the community, our suppliers, and the thriving Atlanta design trade.  We are proud to offer the worlds finest home fabrics, gorgeous trimmings, artisan crafted American furniture, and heirloom quality hand-made rugs.

It all began seventy years ago, in downtown Atlanta when Harry Lewis started Lewis Textiles on Pryor Street.  A man of love and charisma he was known as the “Mayor of Pryor Street”.   He started selling dressmaker fabrics at a time when people made their clothes because they couldn’t afford to buy them and there were no mass production clothing stores.  Their motto at the time was “A woman who sews, has more clothes”.  Over decades of hard work Harry grew the business to about 30 small stores throughout Georgia.  Harry had 2 sons Bernie and Chic, and a daughter Marian who all worked in the business.  Marian married an angel of a man Alec Sheron who became integral in the survival and longevity of the business.  Marian and Alec’s son Larry grew up in the business and in 1980 he and his wife Bobbi took over the operation.

As mass production clothing stores came about, Larry saw that the fabric industry was heading toward home products and away from apparel.  In 1986, Larry and Bobbi decided to close all the small stores and open one singular location with a focus on fine fabrics for the home.  At the new location they started with about 15,000 square feet and wondered how they were ever going to fill it all up.  As it happens though, Larry’s vision worked out and over the span of his ownership, that same store has grown from 15,000 square feet to 60,000 square feet and expanded its product line from fine fabrics to include trimmings, furniture, and rugs.

The company is now on its fourth generation with Larry and Bobbi’s children Sam and Stacey.  The duo literally grew up on bolts of fabric, and have since taken leadership "rolls" in the company.  They make a great team with Sam running the day to day operations / technology, while Stacey is the genius Creative Director.  Together they hope to continue the legacy of their ancestors with a true love of interior design and the desire to create beautiful homes for all.  To achieve this Lewis and Sheron will continue to provide family style service, premium quality products and the passion that has sustained them for over 70 years.  Come by anytime to feel the love, get inspired, and join the family!
