For 70 years, Graber and Springs Window Fashions have been providing beautiful, custom-made window treatments to help unlock your inner designer and bring style and sophistication to your home. But like most good things, Springs Window Fashions started small, with a good idea and hard work.
The Springs Window Fashions success story began in John N. Graber's Wisconsin home in 1939. According to his daughter Marie, the Venetian blinds he had installed did not look right. They needed to create a balanced effect between many windows, but Graber did not want to move the bracket that held the drapery panels and put more holes in his wall. Instead, Graber invented the "Badger Crane*" — a handcrafted, metal drapery crane which would hold the drapery side panels as they hung over the Venetian blinds. Before long, Graber booked orders for his Badger Crane with department stores all over the Midwest, and Badger Crane Drapery Hardware went into full-scale production.
Eventually, John Graber's company expanded to become Springs Window Fashions, maker of Graber-brand custom window treatments. Yet despite all the changes over 70 years, John Graber's spirit of innovation has never faded. Springs Window Fashions' "Best Experience" philosophy is a commitment to quality window treatments, the very best customer service and no-hassle warranties to give every customer peace of mind. We've also developed "Green by Nature™" business practices that include high-recycling manufacturing facilities, environmentally friendly material harvesting, energy-efficient window treatments and healthy-home window treatments that are tested for low volatile organic compound emission.
Best of all, you can count on the Graber brand from Springs Window Fashions — the Best Experience Company — to back up every window treatment with a 70-year tradition of excellence and a lifetime warranty.
