Title: Texas Fabrics & Foam
Historia Type: Photograph
Texas Fabrics & Foam, an El Paso staple since 1974, has been a dedicated part of the community since first opening its doors to the public nearly a half century ago. The business has remained family owned-and-operated since its inception, and it has served both the wholesale and retail markets of the upholstery trade for three generations. Established by George, Tony, Martha, and Mike; four siblings of the Salom family, who made their way to El Paso from Mexico in the 1940s after the family emigrated there from Jwaikhat (a small village in Syria).
From humble beginnings to becoming a mainstay of the city as a base for all creative needs for home, automotive and commercial upholstery projects, Texas Fabrics has remained committed to representing and supporting our incredible border city by always “going the extra yard.” And, while the future remains uncertain, the family hopes to remain an essential thread in the incredible tapestry that makes up El Paso.
The business, located at 1500 Texas Ave just over the Cotton St. bridge, will continue to serve the community with any and all upholstery needs as it has for almost 50 years. The family hopes to be able to continue to do so for at least another five decades and three more generations, as new members of the Salom family grow up and look to make their mark in continuing the legacy here in our vibrant, beautiful, one-of-a-kind desert city.
