The roots of Bernet International date back to 1953 in Zimbabwe when Julius Bernet began selling yarns with major textile production companies throughout the world.


Thirty years later, in 1983, Julius' sons Mervyn and Kevin joined the business and established their own sales operation in Los Angeles in partnership with a major Japanese trading company. The business evolved and expanded over the years to include fiber, fabric, and garment capabilities. In 2003, the Bernet family acquired the U.S. operations of its partner. Today, three generations of Bernets lead the business.


As we have done through decades in the textile industry, we continue to maintain a team-based approach that is dedicated and focused to satisfying our customers’ needs. We have the ability to ship both domestically and internationally and we are excited at the opportunity to be your global trading partner.
