In 1895, E.W. Bredemeier & Co. was created by the Bredemeier family to produce button cards. As the market grew so did EWB creating gorgeous sample books and cards for the clothing and drapery fabric industries. Sampling soon became the must-have tool for merchants, from door-to-door sales to lavish showrooms.
Like so many Americans during the Great Depression, Bredemeier adapted, making whatever it could until World War II when Bredemeier contributed to the war effort producing portable materials for soldiers like mini checkers sets.
With the increasing popularity of the internet and online merchandising, many of our formerly family-owned business partners have transitioned to corporate partnerships. In the last five years business has boomed, leaving EWB like the proverbial small fish that ate the big one.
Our client roster lists industry leaders from Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 Internationals to some of the largest grossing privately owned companies in Apparel and Design.
