History of IDRC
IDRC represents over 40 years of service to the Decorating Industry promoting the awareness of quality interior decorating products and services through trade and consumer advertising media, trade shows and education.
In the mid 70th’s wall covering was taking hold as the trendy decor product. Several manufacturers and distributors joined together to form a group called the Canadian Wallcovering Distributors Association, CWDA. They hosted trade shows and educational seminars across Canada to show how innovative the product had evolved.
