Toto Fabrics, Family Founders

Posted by Pasilobus Support on

Since 1951, the Marks family has done business in Toto, Indiana. Beginning from one store, Jack and Alma Marks built several stores in the heart of Toto. Their son, Sidney, continued to expand the business in the 1970s and 1980s, selling shoes, clothing, draperies, and records, as well as, of course, fabrics. In the face of the changing business environment and the increased competition of large box stores, Sidney reluctantly closed the bricks and mortar stores in the early 2000s. After trying several experiments, in 2008 he started newtotostores.com and began selling discount upholstery, drapery, and home décor fabrics. Since his death in 2010, his wife, Joan, a retired teacher, and his son, Elliot, have worked with the staff in Toto, Indiana, to maintain the quality standard of the family business set by Sidney. New Toto Stores is now Toto Fabrics, a leading source of discount décor fabrics online.

  • I grew up going to Toto because my Gramma and Grandpa Toto (Mary and Art Scutchfield) lived right there in the center of “town.” I LOVED going shopping at the stores all throughout my school years, into college, and I even bought my wedding dress there! I am so happy to have just thought of Sid because of a fabric ad I saw last night. I googled him and found you guys here. I’ll be ordering from you next time I “need” anything! Keep up the good work and “Toto forever!!” – Jodi
