Since 1977, Tapis Corporation has been a pioneer in the development of high -performance fabrics for aircraft interiors. The company’s innovative materials maximize passenger comfort, durability, weight savings and sustainability. Tapis’ products are found in the world’s leading airlines and business jets.

Tapis originally began in the VIP sector of aviation, making flame retardant custom carpets/ The next offering we developed was our Ultrasuede for headliners in the private jet market. Later, the founder, Al Caputo, innovated one of the first AN61 heat release fabrics, which is now used by more than 50 carriers around the world. 
In 1985, Tapis entered the commercial aviation sector, and by 1988, President and CEO, Karen Caputo began officially running Tapis Operations. Under Karen’s leadership, our additional company based in Texas (BAKS) was opened. BAKS expands the product offering and becomes autonomous in flame treatment.
