WHO WE ARE:
Sri was founded by Stephen Szczepanek in 2001.

Prior to opening Sri, Stephen held post as a curator for a private art collection in New York City--a collection that includes over 2,000 museum quality artworks and highlights masterpieces of 20th century design and the arts of Asia. During his ten years as a private curator, Stephen traveled widely throughout China, India and Japan where he was given access to these countries' most important museum collections and their store rooms. 

Stephen founded Sri in order to share his deep, abiding and personal interest for the language and meaning of Japanese and Indian cloth.
 
The name Sri was chosen to as a homage to the Hindu goddess associated with prosperity, well-being, and illustriousness.
 
Sri is open weekdays, weekends and evenings by appointment only.
