About Us


In Southern California for over 35 years, J&J Auto Fabrics has been providing quality upholstery materials and supplies for the automotive and marine industry. 

Our mission statement is "Quality Customer Service + a Quality Product = Success."

In 1982, our founder and owners Joe Sr. and Helen Flores opened J&J Auto Fabrics in one half of a 2,000 sq. ft. commercial building within Downtown Rialto.

Joe Sr. had been a tailor in the Navy.  After leaving the Navy he became a civilian employee at Norton Air Force Base in San Bernardino, CA.  There, he polished his talent as a "Trimmer" (one who does quality re-upholstery work).  At Norton in the "Trim Shop", re-upholstery work was done on aircraft, automotive, marine, and furniture projects.  His wife Helen was working at Kaiser Hospital in Fontana, CA.  Joe Sr. had an idea for providing high quality upholstery products at a better price to those who do the work.

Together, as a team, they mortgaged all their personal property and started J&J with no exit plan!

For their first seven years in business, J&J was opened 7 days a week, 365 days a year.  Joe Sr. and Helen worked their full time jobs and then finished their day/evening at their "Shop".

In 1988, J&J Auto Fabrics moved into a 10,000 sq. ft. building in Downtown Rialto on Riverside Ave. and was open Monday through Sunday.  Joe Sr retired from Norton Air Force Base in 1988 as the supervisor of the Trim Shop.  After 30 years of service, Helen retired from Kaiser Hospital Fontana, in 1992.

Joe Jr. started working at the "Shop" in 1992 after he medically retired from the Riverside County Fire Dept/C.D.F.

Currently J&J Auto Fabrics has five qualified, knowledgeable, and friendly employees.  We are open 5 days a week, Tuesday through Saturday.

So, if it's vinyl, carpet, padding, weatherstripping, window channels, heat/sound control material, tools, specialty fasteners, foam, adhesives that you are looking for, J&J can help you!  if we do not have it, we may be able to get it or refer you to someone who does!

We have been truly blessed for over 35 years!

So......stop by the "Shop" and have a look around at our products, or shop on our website!  Our qualified staff is ready to help you with your purchase!

Helen & Joe Sr.
