How Are We Different?

American Century Home stands apart from the competition in two distinct ways.

First, American Century is a converter, manufacturer, and distributor of upholstery, multi purpose, cut and sew fabrics, and home fashion products.


As a converter, we have the ability to sell direct to large users (furniture manufacturers, retail fabric stores, pillow manufacturers, bedding distributors and chain stores) bypassing he middle men who drive jobber prices out of these markets.


By operating our own cut and sew facility we are able to maintain a closer proactive overview of all products being produced in China as well as a turnaround time advantage.


We operate a 570,000 square foot shipping and receiving plant with full EDI capabilities in N.C. USA. i.e. For cut order division, we will ship all orders the next day if the order is received prior to 3:00 PM. We stock over 2 million yards of decorative fabrics and over 1.5 million finished product units in our own warehouse. This gives us a stronger position with shorter lead times for final product delivery.


Second, American Century Home Fabrics has its own in-house design team. Our design team is

consisting of multi talented group of artists and textile designers from various countries.


With our designers, and the use of their CAD systems, we are able to design, create, and color virtually any woven fabric that can be imagined. This, coupled with a very progressive sampling philosophy in China, gives us the most competitive edge.


We are very proud of our accomplishments towards providing innovative new products, superior service and very competitive prices.


American Century Home is, without question, one of the few decorative fabric and fashion bedding designer/distributors in America to offer all of these products and services to our customers.
