INGENUITY STARTS WITH A SINGLE SPARK.
In the 1950s, the wife of Glen Raven’s president had a great idea. Why couldn’t they create a pair of stockings that were all one piece, like a pair of pants? So he set to work at Glen Raven, and soon Panti-Legs were invented – the first pantyhose.
RETHINK WHAT A FABRIC CAN DO.
Sunbrella fabrics revolutionized the awning industry in 1961 with the longevity of its acrylic fibers compared to the standard cotton fabric. Since then, Sunbrella has continued to forge new paths with introductions into the marine, casual furniture, indoor furniture and contract markets.
