India: India has one of the greatest textile traditions in the world. Indians have been growing, weaving and sewing cotton textiles for hundreds of years, and now have some of the highest-quality production facilities in the world. They are also the world’s largest producer of organic cotton.
Turkey: Renowned for its towels and rugs, Turkey has a long history of growing, weaving and dying high-quality cotton. It is one of the world’s leading producers of both conventional and organic cotton.
Portugal: Although no cotton and very little flax is grown in Portugal, it is a leading European textiles manufacturer. With a reputation for quality craftsmanship and soft, supple fabrics, the Portuguese are an important partner in producing some of our most beautiful sheets, blankets and robes.
Germany: As with its automobile industry, Germany’s textile manufacturers are known for engineering, precision and attention to detail. While it costs a bit more to produce items there, the beauty and quality of German-made items are second to none.
Canada: As a large wool supplier with a history of weaving the warmest and coziest of products, Canada is a source of the highest-grade natural wool and wool products in timeless styles.
U.S.A.: We are often asked why more of our offerings are not produced in the U.S.A. The answer is quite simple: the cotton grown here is mostly short-staple cotton, used mainly for apparel. Additionally, the sharp decline of the U.S. textiles industry has made it virtually impossible to provide a reasonably priced item that has not been already shipped around the Americas for spinning, weaving and dying. However, we do look for opportunities to make items here, like our organic wool blankets, made on 100-year-old looms in Maine, or our reclaimed wood bed, sourced and manufactured right here in California.
