Braving the economic uncertainty of post-war society in the late 1940’s and diving into the textiles industry, Ben Schneer was rewarded with a successful enterprise – La Lame, Inc. – which catered to the fashion needs of the baby boomers of that new era.

Ben’s La Lame, Inc. fabric business centered on embroidery, fancy yarns and embellished cloths which drove a thriving trade between his local endeavor and his European clientele.

Today the business is still steered by his family – namely Ed and Glen Schneer, his two sons. They pride themselves on the legacy of quality and service left by their father and strive to maintain the traditional values that has hoisted La Lame, Inc. into a respectable position as a go-to textile trader.
