Source Textile Reads10-08-19
As we continue to strengthen our presence in North America, we are delighted to announce the acquisition of Luna Textiles, a San Francisco based textile company. Founded in 1994 with a vision to introduce a new style to commercial interiors, Luna has a distinctive portfolio of patterned textiles, designed for the corporate, hospitality and healthcare markets.
Luna’s brand legacy comes from its founder, Anna Hernandez, who established the company as an industry leader in the commercial textile field through her creative design portfolio and company credentials, but also memorable marketing techniques which have led to several prestigious industry awards.
Luna has been an important innovator and contributor in the North American textile industry and the acquisition will only expand and strengthen Camira’s presence in the market, with a broader product portfolio complementing Camira’s current offering of upholstery and panel fabrics.
“We are both humbled and excited about continuing the legacy of Anna Hernandez and Luna. We believe there is a strong synergy of values and sustainability initiatives between Camira and Luna and we are very much looking forward to making Luna part of the Camira family,” commented Rune Akselberg, President of Camira North America’s operation.
Michael Vanderbyl, designer and co-founder of Luna Textiles, overseeing the management of Luna since Anna Hernandez passed away in 2016, commented: “Although a very emotional decision, we believe the presence of Luna as part of Camira will continue to profile everything Anna built and embrace the legacy she created. We look forward to seeing Anna’s vision and ethos develop with Camira.”
Luna Textiles will remain as an independent brand, selling through its network of sales representatives.
We hope you will join us in celebrating the continued growth for Camira and the exciting future ahead!
