Message from Leo Novik


Growing up in Chile, I saw the wonder of the natural world around me, and I’ve always been inspired to preserve that beauty. I love to say that Fil Doux Textiles is an eco-conscious, tariff-free, mill-direct supplier of beautiful textiles, vinyl, and sheers from our family-owned mills in Chile and Brazil.

We are also soft touch for everyone we serve, including our beautiful planet.

We are completely vertical in our mills to ensure the highest standards of quality control, with our amazing on-time track record of 4-6 weeks lead times on all of our products.

We air freight all of our products to ensure our customers are meeting and exceeding all of their deadlines.

Our goal has always been to produce luxurious and residential-feeling fabrics for the hospitality, contract and cruise industries, while always leading the way in sustainability. We proudly supply our textiles across all brand levels including Marriott, Four Seasons, IHG, Wyndham and many more.
