Sundial Wire has been providing beautiful, high quality, cloth covered wire since 1991. Our wire is
newly US-manufactured wire,
constructed of copper wire covered in PVC and a cotton or rayon braid.
Sundial Wire started braiding wire when the supply in old hardware stores was drying up and no other companies were making it.
We have always been committed to the highest quality
American-made wire. This is why high-end decorators, interior designers, architects, movie decorators, and museums use Sundial Wire.
We sell cloth-covered wire braided with cotton or rayon only. Cheap imitations advertise only cloth-covered or fabric wire, which
often has a nylon braid, which has a plastic look to it, unlike the cotton and rayon. Chinese cloth-covered wire sometimes contains
aluminum rather than copper, not a safe alternative. And the twist on other wires is often loose and sloppy. With genuine Sundial Wire, you know
what you are getting and you know you are getting the best quality.
MADE IN AMERICA
Other manufacturers claim that their wire is American-made. However, not only do we braid the wire right here in Massachusetts, but the wire
is made in the US as well. We think we might be the only manufacturer who has only US braiding and only US-made wire.
HOW DID WE GET INTO THIS BUSINESS?
We are truly a mom-and-pop store, with Jim starting the company when he, working on a film crew, need cloth-covered wire for sets on the movie
Billy Bathgate in 1990. We saw a need for beautiful wire as well as period-correct wire, and have grown beyond just supplying Jim's and others'
set decorating needs. However, you can see our wire in such motion pictures as Water for Elephants, Suckerpunch, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Seabiscuit,
King Kong, War of the Worlds, and dozens of other productions. Our wire has also appeared in the TV shows: Boardwalk Empire, Fringe,
Bones, and Heroes, among others.
