This press release announces the 70th anniversary of Springs Window Fashions. It provides a quick look at the beginnings of John Graber's company and describes how it became Springs Window Fashions, maker of Bali, Graber and Nanik window treatments.

Our dedicated associates have enabled us to grow over the past 70 years

For 70 years, Springs Window Fashions has been providing beautiful, top-quality window treatments to people around the world. 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 became Springs Window Fashions and expanded to provide a complete selection of blinds, shades and decorative drapery hardware. 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 Natureā„¢" 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.
