The story of Sanders.
How it started. How it grew.

A walk down memory lane to the mid-1900s

Where it all started

New to the US, Jacob Reisman started a quilting shop for bedspreads. With his small, but mighty team of 5, combined hard work, and lots of coffee to fuel them, they grew steadily.

1951

The next generation

Congrats! Jacob's son Martin got married! He soon found himself with a family to support and so he started his own quilting factory for coats.

1972

It's a move

Martin moved from Brooklyn to Edison, New Jersey. He began by selling bedsheets and comforters to major retailers like Macys and Walmart. Here’s where the explosive growth happened in the form of 150+ employees and dozens of new machinery to keep up with the demand. .

1985

Time for a pivot

Imports became very common and Martin could no longer compete. Not one to give up, he pivoted, sold his factory, and jumped on the import bus.

1995

It’s official — Sanders Collection is now incorporated

Emanual Reisman joins the business. He incorporated the business and called it ‘Sanders Collection’. He took care of the cold-calling part and did hundreds of calls a day bringing in fresh leads daily. The business grew by the day. At this point, it was about scaling efficiently and profitably.
