C & F Enterprises, Inc. was originally established in 1976 with the main products being porcelains and antiques from China. The business grew and expanded into table linen and seasonal gift categories during the early 1980's, quickly followed by the addition of handcrafted quilted bedding and needlepoint merchandise making C & F a leader in these two categories. C & F has been able to differentiate itself from its competitors by having a strong U.S. design team as well as designers in China.
