AST Fabrics, formerly A. Sommer Textiles, is a wholesale distributor of high quality, decorative textiles serving the home furnishing industry as well as the contract and hospitality markets. AST Fabrics has been serving the design community for over 50 years, spanning two generations of the Sommer family ownership and operations.
AST Fabrics was a pioneer and is today an industry leader, in providing a wide range of natural fiber, yarn dyed chenille and boucle fabrics as its base offering. Our relationship with our core mill allows us to quickly deliver most orders.
Layered in with our soft palettes of textures, you’ll find complementary subtle patterns, interesting solids in bold and traditional hues and those perfect accent fabrics to complete your look. We also offer a broad selection of indoor/outdoor fabrics, exclusive jacquard patterns, linens, silks, and wool blends as well as a selection of more casual fabrics.
AST Fabric’s home-base is in the San Francisco Bay Area. We pride ourselves in offering personalized service. Whether it is in our showrooms throughout the US or on the phone with our in-house staff, we meet the varying needs of the professional designer. Our core Chenille line is woven exclusively for us, locally here in California. You’ll find our fabrics are either stocked on our shelves or woven for you in as little as two weeks! We have become known for our quick-turns as well as excellent customer service and our commitment to excellence and quality.
