Jaftex Corporation is an 87-year-old, 4th generation, family-owned business based out of New York City. Jaftex has several well-known fabric brands under its umbrella which include: A.E. Nathan Co., Inc.,
Henry Glass Fabrics, Studioe Fabrics, The Blank Quilting Corp,. and Fabric Editions.

The companies predominantly offer coordinated 100% cotton quilting groups that are both licensed and unlicensed. Some of the key licensed designers include: Kim Diehl, Shelly Comisky, The Whole Country Caboodle, Jan Shade Beach, Tana Mueller, Pepper Cory, Dt-k Signature, and Sandra Magsamen. In addition to the 100% cotton quilting groups, the companies offer 100% cotton flannel groups, double gauze, yarn dyed flannels, and 108" wide quilt backing in prints, solids, and flannel too. In an effort to grow and diversify, the companies have started to sell tea towels, which lend themselves to embroidery, as well as precut fabrics such as fat quarters, jelly rolls, charms, and squares.

More recently, Jaftex has formed a partnership with Air-lite Manufacturing out of Pontiac Michigan. Air-lite specializes in batting, foam, and similar products. Of note is the embroidery batting gaining much recognition and fanfare in the industry. Another new partner is Stof Fabrics out of Denmark.
Stof offers distinctly different and fresh quilt groups with a European flare.

We are proud to be attending our first VDTA Show. The show will be attended by one of the owners, Greg Fortunoff, and by Cliff Garfinkel, sales manager. Greg and Cliff look forward to welcoming you at Booth 855 with the opportunity to demonstrate how fabrics can be a great complement to your sew and vac offerings.
