Company Profile

Since 1876, C.M. Offray and Son, Inc. has created, manufactured, and merchandised "The World's Most Beautiful Ribbons". Claude V. Offray, Jr., President and grandson of the founder has carried on the family tradition, succeeding his father in 1962 and his grandfather, who as a seventeen year old fabric designer from France arrived in New York as a manufacturer's representative of French textiles and fancy ribbons. The magnificent silk ribbons he designed many years ago are still used as inspiration for today's lovely products. C.M. Offray and Son, Inc., an international company, is the largest and most modern producer of ribbons and narrow fabrics for the apparel manufacturing, home furnishings, home sewing, craft and floral, industrial and high tech, gift and packaging markets. Offray's ribbons are colorfast, washable, dry cleanable, do not shrink and require no ironing. Offray was the first to meet government specifications for flame retardancy without the use of chemicals... a leading factor in the children's sleepwear industry.
