KRAVET RESOURCE CENTER
The Kravet Resource Center is a unique industry tool available to current DISD students. Students may browse current sample books of Kravet and Lee Jofa fabrics, trimmings and wall coverings in the DISD Library. They may order free memo samples and find more information about these materials online.
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE SAMPLE BOOKS ARE FOR REFERENCE ONLY – NO CUTTING!
Accessing Kravet information online
eDesignTrade, Kravet’s website for design professionals, is available to current DISD students. With eDesignTrade, students can find complete information about each fabric, including the cost and environmental features, print full-color “swatches” to use in reports, and order free memo samples to use in projects.
Current students will receive an email at the beginning of each semester with their usernames and passwords, and a link to the eDesignTrade login page.
NOTE: Your eDesignTrade password is NOT the same as your DISD password!

Ordering Memo Samples
To order free memo samples, download the Kravet Material Request Form from the P (Public) drive. It is a fillable PDF form. Enter your name and address, and the pattern and color numbers of the materials you want to order. You may order up to 10 free samples at a time.
Save the completed form to the Desktop, your Z drive, or another location of your choosing (you will not be able to save it to the Public drive).
NOTE: If you are unable to save the completed form, choose File > Print and select Adobe PDF as the printer. In the Save PDF File As dialog box, save the form to the Desktop, your Z drive, or another location of your choosing.
Email the completed form as an attachment to the Kravet email address listed at the bottom of the form.
Most samples arrive in 7-10 days, but there is no guaranteed delivery date. You can check online to ensure that memo samples are available before ordering them.
