In 1993, Craig and Randy Rubin hatched an ingenious plan from the basement of their Michigan home. The super duo wanted a fabric that could stand up to life’s messes and still be touchable and beautiful, a fabric that would change the way many people live their lives.

Crypton® is still a family-owned business, driven by passion and purpose, now selling products world-wide…and in our own CRYPTON STORE. We create a range of products that make life easier and continue to exceed expectations. Crypton is more than a fabric company. If you look around, you’ll discover Crypton in some interesting places, from furniture to mattress protectors to child car seats.

Our products are not only soft and beautiful, but are also designed to perform, and have varying levels of protection depending on where they will be used. In situations where heavy demands can be placed on fabric, like pet beds and booster seats for children, we use our flagship Crypton Fabric, which offers superior performance with exceptional protection from stains, odors, and mildew. For outdoor furniture, which is often exposed to harsh elements, we created Crypton Outdoor, with additional mildew and UV protection.

Not every situation demands so much from its fabric, so we developed a line of fabrics specifically for residential use, Crypton Home Fabric. Crypton Home is the perfect blend of beauty and durability, with the  performance features of our Crypton Fabric, but tailored for use in the home. We recently partnered with Valdese Weavers to broaden our Crypton Home Fabric product line and extend our reach within the residential market.

At Crypton, we’re passionate about living clean, so we aim to make cleaning easy and simple. Maintaining the beauty of upholstered furnishings hasn’t always been easy – until now!

    I just wanted to send a HUGE thank you for the excellent customer service that Katara House has provided to me for the last few orders I have placed. May I say first that I am a huge fan of your products being a William Wegman fan as well as a weimaraner owner. We ordered our first beds for our 2 dogs about 8 years ago and they are still in excellent condition. My family are fans for life! I was first introduced to Katara House when an order I placed last Fall had one product out of stock. She kindly contacted me promptly and suggested something else or a refund. It was totally personal and very kind. Recently with the fantastic sale you had over the holidays, I ordered 2 more beds for my weimaraner and realized after the fact I should have ordered a different size. Katara contacted me to apologize for the delay in processing the order and also kept me updated on what was happening. She went above and beyond to perform wonderful customer service. I am so pleased about all my experiences with your company I will be a lifelong customer. I have thanked Katara directly by e-mail but I wanted to make sure she got some recognition for being an example of top notch communication. We are in the process of considering furniture now and I am certainly entertaining order everything for our living room. Stay tuned and please continue to provide that personal touch and customer experience I absolutely cherish about your company.
