The Craye family business was founded in 1880. In the 1970’s they were well known for the quality of their jacquard fabric and began manufacturing cloth for Dior. Craye came to specialise in the reproduction of wall tapestries and recreated the style of Flemish weaving of the 14th and 15th centuries, for which they are world leaders.
Metrax-Craye is a division of B & T Textilia based in Belgium.
