History

In 1904, German immigrant Henrietta Gattle began selling imported lace curtains door-to-door in Cincinnati.  Customers then encouraged her to take her business to the location where they spent their summers.  So Henrietta began traveling to Petoskey, Michigan, where she opened her first store in 1919.  A year later, she and her son, Otto, opened a Cincinnati location.

 

The Gattle's name soon became synonymous with luxury home linens assembled from around the world.  By the 1950's store locations began to appear in Florida and later in North Carolina.

 

Eventually, Otto's son, Tom Gattle Sr. would carry on the family business of selling beautiful luxury linens for many decades.

 

Today, Gattle's Fine Linen store, located in Naples, Florida continues to be a family business that was founded over 100 years ago.  From generation to generation, our standard for excellence has never ceased.  Offering the finest quality linens in bed, bath, table and lingerie.   Gattle's continually strive to find the newest and most exciting merchandise from around the world for your home.
