Houlèswas established in 1928 in the Faubourg Saint-Antoine area in Paris, the heart of the traditional district for upholsterers, interior designers and architects. Today, from its humble beginnings, Houlès are creators and designers of trimmings, decorative fabrics and hardware collections. Many of the Houlès creations are featured in palaces and castles like le Château de Versailles, or Presidential Residences in France and abroad. 

One of Houlès standout designs is their Double Piping Cords. With a range of textures, colours and styles, they are one of the only brands to produce this sort of piping. Our clients love it, with many using it for upholstery.
