About The Mitchell Group

Co-founded by Bill Fisch and Ann Brunett, the Niles, IL.-based Mitchell Group is a premier textile source and converter for furniture manufacturers and retailers, contract & hospitality, boating and RV markets. Strategic distribution has placed Mitchell products in hotels, casinos, restaurants, offices, and commercial spaces.

The Mitchell Group’s collection includes Sta-Kleen®, the industry’s first dry-erase urethane upholstery. It surpasses all other polyurethane fabrics; faux leathers and vinyl upholstery in stain protection. The fabric has high-end designer appeal, the hand of fine leather, is highly abrasion resistant, anti-bacterial, and durable enough to last for the life of the furniture.

Mitchell’s ReCast® collection is a technically advanced engineered bonded leather product available in a wide variety of patterns and colors, many exceeding 100,000 double rubs for abrasion. ReCast® is competitively priced and has maintained significant market share due to design, durability and its remarkable resemblance to real leather – at a fraction of the price. Mitchell’s sister company, Big Kahuna Fabrics, is a leading textile converter of Hawaiian-influenced tropical prints suitable for upholstery, bedding and window treatments. For more information, visit
