History & Mission


JKS was established in 1975 as a sales agency for textile suppliers. Originally founded in Huntington Beach, California, JKS opened their first New York showroom in 1980. In 1992, the company moved all operations to New York and opened the International Textile Building on 29th Street, in the heart of the home textile industry.


JKSAgents represents a number of top suppliers: home textile producers, converters and manufacturers. The sales group of agents is over 43 countries on 5 continents. The mission is to put JKS textile producers directly in touch with the international textile buyer...importers, converters, distributors, manufacturers, and in some cases directly with the retailers.

Johnny Keeton doesn't buy and resell textiles. A group of independent sales agents helps Johnny Keeton Studios market the newest designs, colours, and looks that these textile producers create each season. Active in textile fairs worldwide, it is the goal of Johnny Keeton Sales Agents to offer the hottest, most saleable home textiles in the market at any time. Sources range from the USA, Brazil, UK, Turkey, India, Pakistan, Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and China.
