Who is Ricardo Trading?
Richard Corelle, Owner & President
 
After earning his B.S. in Marketing, Richard immediately entered the textile industry as a sales representative. Over the following twenty years, he worked in sales and product development for several nationally-recognized companies including Nettle Creek, Park B. Smith, Inc., Richloom Home Fashions, Bloomcraft Fabrics, and D. Kwitman & Son. During that period, Richard created successful window, bedding, and accessory programs with a wide variety of retailers, including Pottery Barn, Crate & Barrel, Spiegel, Country Curtains, Garnet Hill, Sears, and Montgomery Ward’s.
In 1996 Richard expanded his enterprise and established Ricardo Trading as an importer of soft window treatments from China, India, and the Philippines. Since that time, he has mastered the challenges of fabric design, the intricacies of its production, and the complexities of international shipping. Today, in addition to offering a comprehensive line of window and shower curtain products, Ricardo Trading also creates programs tailored to individual customers and their particular channels of distribution.
As the company has evolved, Richard has realized that being successful at the highest level requires a team of skilled professionals. To that end, Ricardo Trading promises its customers with complete confidence that everything they need to create a successful window program, from styling to delivery to service, will be handled expertly by our knowledgeable, experienced team.
