Maker The Sanford Narrow Fabric Company

Maker Details The Sanford Narrow Fabric Company was started in Germany and later moved to 351 Fourth Avenue, New York. It produced a variety of lace edgings and trims out of mills in Germany, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts. Although some of their trim was registered with the patent office in 1908, they did not begin consumer advertising until 1918, previously advertising only to dealers.
