About C & F
C&F Enterprises, Inc. was originally established in 1976 under the ownership and direction of Carol Fang. C&F began as a one-woman operation, which imported porcelain and antiques from China and sold the merchandise from Mrs. Fang's home in Yorktown, Virginia. The business grew at a steady rate, showing profit each year, which allowed C&F to expand its territory throughout the southeast. During the early 1980's, the company branched into the table linen and seasonal gift categories and experienced tremendous success as a result. The company then ventured into the handcrafted quilted bedding and needlepoint merchandise, which quickly made C&F a leader in these two industries. This is mainly due to the fact that C&F Enterprises, unlike most other import companies, have their own design team in China, as well as in the United States. This enables C&F in many ways to differentiate itself from its competitors. C&F has also established its own licensing department, which allows them to obtain their designs from some of the best artists in the country.
One of C&F's greatest strengths is their line of handmade needlepoint merchandise. C&F is the largest importer of handmade needlepoint products in the United States today. They have over 600 different colors to choose from when designing their needlepoint. This allows C&F the freedom to develop an extremely vivid color scheme, which produces a unique illusion of depth and detail, creating a final product of superior quality. Needlepoint merchandise is available in a variety of items, ranging from everyday pillows to stocking to accessories. C&F has also been extremely successful in their line of Christmas needlepoint.
C&F has also been extremely successful with their quilted Christmas category. With more than a dozen themes to choose from, C&F has developed Christmas quilted throws, pillows, tree skirts, stocking, and table linens. C&F designs, prints, and manufactures most of their fabric from overseas, which allows them to capture the detail and quality comparable to American fabrics, but at affordable and competitive prices. The detail and originality of these designs will accent any home décor.
In 1997, C&F opened a separate division of the company named Gallerie II, building on the company's strengths as well as bringing new product categories to the market. Gallerie II is known for its distinctive and exclusive product based on proprietary and licensed designs. With the primary product focus on Seasonal trim, tabletop decorations, accessories and gifts, Gallerie II is taking a leading role in transforming homes during major holidays.
In 2000, C&F introduced the QK Collection, a line of handbags, tote bags and travel accessories in well designed quilted fabrics that has continued to grow and gain market share. Again, all of the fabrics are exclusive designs and printed by the company. About the same time, a licensed Collegiate collection was introduced in a variety of products including throws, pillows, holiday, and accessories.
Licensed properties have been an integral part of the C&F line. These properties have included Walt Disney Classic Winnie the Pooh and Mickey and Company as well as Coco-Cola Santas.
Several well-known artists have also contributed to the success of C&F Enterprises. Colonial Williamsburg, Kate McRostie, Susan Winget, Ingrid, Lainey Daniels and the Hautman Brothers are just a few. In January, 2007, C&F will be introducing the April Cornell Collection which will add another dimension to the Bedding and Holiday Collections.
Today C&F Enterprises is a multi-million dollar company with its manufacturing facilities in China and over 250,000 square feet of warehouse space in Newport News, Virginia. C&F continues to expand with a current sales team of over 100 individuals, as well as expanding marketing and design teams. These teams are constantly working to insure that C&F will continue to offer quality merchandise that is innovative and unique for years to come.
