Annis - Krapes Corporation was a 1930s women's clothing firm which was incorporated in January 1931. The business was started with two hundred shares of common stock. Its business office was located at 51 Chambers Street (Manhattan).[1] In late March 1931 the Annis-Krapes Corporation placed a classified ad requesting large quantities of silks, specifically flowered and printed crapes of the georgette (fabric) genre. The business had changed its address to 520 8th Avenue (Manhattan).[2]

The company was likely a casualty of the Great Depression.
