Thief River Linen has long been known for exceptional fabrics, a fresh approach to home fashion design, and outstanding customer service. Featuring designs infused with a spirit of comfortable elegance, the company is a prime resource for interior designers and retailers shopping the furniture and accessory markets, as well as those in the Hospitality industry looking for unique fabrics at a competitive price.
The company was founded in 1986 by Linda Bentson in Thief River Falls, MN, in an effort to provide a way to boost income to a small community that was suffering from a downturn in the farming industry.
In early 2010, Emily Peele, a former employee and designer for Thief River, formed StudioPeele Home LLC, and purchased Thief River Linen. Manufacturing was then moved from Minnesota to North Carolina, keeping the high-quality techniques and working close to the long-time hub of the home furnishings industry-High Point, NC.
Thief River Linen continues to build on its commitment to wonderful fabrics and quality products that meet the unique needs of our diverse design and retail customers. We love the thrill of hunting for truly unique fabrics, the intensity and effort of the design process and the deep satisfaction that comes from helping to create beautiful products and environments. As a supplier and collaborator in your design process, we strive to be a resourceful, reliable and friendly partner who consistently provides excellent products and first class customer service.
