In doing so, it became the first bedding company to combine U.S.-based product design, customer service and technology with the cost benefits and manufacturing capabilities that are best achieved throughout Asia. Today, Standard Fiber works together with its customers – manufacturers, distributors and digitally-native brands – to supply fabric, components and fully-manufactured textile products to the home textile, mattress, hospitality, healthcare and pet markets with the aim of delivering innovative and sustainable solutions consumers want, at the competitive prices they need. With offices and staff in the U.S., UK, China, India and Pakistan, Standard Fiber is a global leader in home bedding products and textile manufacturing, and one of the largest producers of utility bedding products in the world.
