Made in the Shade Blinds & More launched its debut in January 2004, by Founder and CEO, Cathy Morse, a 25+ year veteran in the home interiors industry. Her vision was to build a trusted brand through a team of window covering industry professionals who carried the same passion – a commitment to excellence by adding beauty to every home and business.
Headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, Made in the Shade has since expanded its locations throughout the US and Canada, emerging as a leader in the custom window coverings industry.
We created our custom window coverings franchise opportunity with your success in mind!
