The Company was started in the late 1960’s by the Kehls family in the centre of Cape Town before moving in 1988 to the now landmark building in Maitland.

The KZN branch opened in 2006 in Pinetown and has grown to include a wider range of décor fabrics, vinyl and technical fabrics for the Upholsterer and the Motor Trimmer. The branch also stocks green and compressed chip foam sheets.

Kehls supplies the interior decorator, upholsterer, motor trimming trade and public. Kehls offers a comprehensive range of fabrics, vinyls, foam, tools and components. Over the years it has become the largest fabric, fillings and upholstery supply house in the country. Kehls continually brings in new fabric ranges priced to suit all budgets. Kehls also offers a same day cut foam and button covering service.

Kehls is known for its affordable and quality products, great service and free delivery.
