Master Screen Printers
Keeping the tradition alive
Two generations working together to create luxury hand printed textiles and wallcoverings. Our company remains stubbornly passionate about offering our clients the richest and highest quality printed textiles available. Our hand printing process gives each yard of fabric a vibrant and highly pigmented color range that simply can’t be reproduced by an inkjet printer. We encourage you to be fully involved in a collaborative process with us. It centers around our craftsmanship combined with your unique specifications to create a finished creation that is the realization of your vision.
That’s the heart behind EFS Designs Inc.

Luxury fabric available to the public
Printing is our tradition, and design is our passion. Explore our very own fabric lines created by EFS Designs' very own textile designer Maria Suarez.
When you walk into our 100-year-old Brooklyn textile printing factory, your eyes will rest on the 165-foot-long tables that run the length of our space. You’ll witness the love for our craft in the back, and forth motion of our wooden squeegees evenly spreading the ink over the silkscreen that replicates the gorgeous textiles.
Because of that heart and work ethic, you’ll more than likely meet the founding father of the whole operation, Eudoro Suarez. He’s always here, doing what he’s done since he started printing t-shirts in his aunt’s living room as a young man. A terrible car accident 35 years ago in Ecuador brought Eudoro, a twenty-something at the time, to the US for surgery to address his extensive injuries. Barely escaping with his eyesight, he recovered in the care of two aunts who nursed him back to health and eventually gave him his start in screen printing.
You may also meet Maria, the young textile designer, and creative director with a soulful heart that learned this trade from her father, Eudoro. She can tell you the history and passion for their craft that still carries the bone-deep tradition and exceptional quality that started it all to begin with.
