Deep Roots, New Inspirations

The heart and soul of the company that is now Halcraft began in New York City in 1922 when Sam Wallach and George Cohen entered the bead industry with Walco Bead Co, later turning into Walbead.  Their beads were carefully selected and imported from Czech Republic, Austria, and Germany.

With the ability to provide a large selection of beads, the Wallach family sold to companies specializing in everything from costumes for the circus to couture clothing for the fashion industry, embellishments for women’s hats, and, of course, beads for jewelry designers and manufacturers.

The company was an early anchor on West 37th Street, which is still a bead center to this day because of its proximity to the garment industry and theatre district. The hottest new designers could run into the store and walk out with the most exciting, sparkling beads for their designs all in the same morning.
