– About Gelmor Lace – French Lace Importers-
Gelmor Trading Company, Inc, or more affectionately known as Gelmor Lace, was founded in 1948 by three partners, all of whom escaped the Nazis and found their way to New York. Together with a family member in Lyon, France, they became the largest French lace importer in the United States. From the beginning they served the ready to wear, bridal, and hat market. Unlike many of their competitors, they stocked the lace in New York so as to be able to serve their customers’ immediate needs.
Through the years, as tastes have changed and trends have come and gone, we have continued to add new styles and designs.
