Distinctive Details beginning...

In 1993, owner Francesca Nilsen was embarking on a new business venture, a venture that turned out to be exactly the opposite of her intended idea. After moving to Houston in 1992, she decided to change career paths. All she knew was she had a passion for decorating and a sense of style with fabrics. While decorating her own home she decided to make a decorative table runner out of a beautiful peach brocade fabric. The runner was so lovely and so easy to make, her thoughts turned to manufacturing her own line of home accessories. After spending months marketing a line of home accessory products for the wholesale trade, a tip from a local caterer mentioned marketing her product to the linen rental industry. The fabrics she used for placemats, linens and napkins consisted of rich damasks and brocades and the caterers loved them...but....they were not willing to purchase the items due to the lack of not being able to service them. Upon further investigating, it seemed that the 4th largest city in America was indeed lacking a high end linen rental company. Francesca dismissed the unknown hurdles encompassing starting a new business and swiftly took distinctive details to the top with a thriving linen rental company. Houston was hungry for new looks for their important events and was thrilled that a specialty linen company now existed. Business came in fast and furious and the inventory grew at an alarming rate.
