About Us

horses-derbyfabrics2.jpgDerby Fabrics Incorporated was established in 1961 by Hugh Kettring to serve local upholsterers in the Louisville, KY area. 

Through the years Derby Fabrics has grown into one of the premier wholesale distributors of upholstery supplies and textiles in the Midwest. 

While Derby Fabrics still remains a family owned business our focus has grown to include not only automotive and marine textiles but also hospitality/contract and healthcare textiles and supplies. 

 Derby Fabrics is always looking to offer their customer the best products on the market while also offering a wide variety of products such as Naugahyde, Spradling, Nassimi, and Morbern vinyls.  The diverse fabric lines that Derby Fabrics offers include products from Crypton Fabrics, Johnston Textiles, and Absecon Mills.
