THOMASTON, Ga. (PRWEB) February 19, 2021
For the past 20 years, Thomaston Mills, a family owned bedding manufacturer focused on the healthcare and hospitality market. Hilton, Marriott, Radisson and Intercontinental hotels have all used their sheets. Thomaston Mills has been making sheets for over 122 years in the town of Thomaston, Georgia. While nearly all textile manufacturing and production moved overseas, decimating factories and jobs, Thomaston Mills stood resolute and kept manufacturing here in the USA.
In response to a massive rise in consumer demand for organic cotton and USA made bedding, Thomaston reentered the retail market in December 2018 with the launch of direct to consumer brand, American Blossom Linens. They brought back a brand, originally called Blossom, that was created by Thomaston in the 1940’s with the goal of capturing the old-fashioned goodness of their origins. Due to supply chain issues during the pandemic, Made in USA products have been increasing in popularity which has resulted in a 400% increase in sales for American Blossom Linens. Per founder, Janet Wischnia, "Every day we are getting emails and messages from customers thanking us for making products in the USA. Many of them tell us, they are searching out American Made products exclusively now.”
Unlike textiles sourced from overseas, which travel on average 8,000 miles from the factory to your door, American Blossom Linens bedding is made only in the USA using 100% traceable organic cotton grown by family farmers. Their bedding is grown, processed, finished and sewn in the USA, drastically reducing its carbon footprint while supporting American workers all along the way.
In June the company surveyed their customers to ask what additional products they would like to see added to the American Blossom Linens line. Overwhelmingly their fans have asked for blankets. After searching all over they chose to partner with a family owned mill in Monmouth Maine that has been making blankets since 1850. The mill is weaving their new Herringbone Blankets which are beautifully crafted with organic American cotton farmed without harmful pesticides, GMOs, or chemical defoliants. They are breathable but insulating, not too warm for hot summer nights but cozy enough when the weather turns cool. The perfect weight, super soft Herringbone Blanket makes a cozy layer for the sofa or the bed, no matter the season.
The Queen (90 x 96”), King (108 x 96”) and Throw (50 x 70”) sizes are available in two colors, American Harvest, a neutral beige shade and Patriot Blue, a rich blue shade. They are machine washable and dryable.
Color American Harvest is made from a combination of natural West Texas organic cotton yarn and Foxfibre® Coyote Brown heirloom cotton yarn. Foxfibre® is organically grown in a rich color which is integral to the fiber itself. Not a drop of artificial dyes is needed to make these blankets beautiful. This wonderful cotton called Foxfibre® was created by Sally Fox, a “cotton pioneer” for her efforts regarding organic, colored cotton. In the 1980’s she was the first one to develop the systems to grow and promote organic cotton in the USA, which started the conversation about organic textiles.
Color Patriot Blue, made from West Texas organic cotton, is a combination of natural yarn and blue yarn. This beautiful rich blue yarn is created by a century-old mill in North Carolina using low impact dyes.
A limited quantity of the blankets are available now, only on the American Blossom Linens website. Free shipping in the USA.
The popular sheet and duvet collection, which has been available for about two years, on the American Blossom Linens website, includes sheet sets in twin, full, queen, king, California king and split king, duvet sets in full/queen and king, pillowcase sets and a crib sheet. Available colors are Natural, White and Latte Linen (made from a blend of West Texas organic cotton and Foxfibre® naturally grown colored cotton) The linens are generously sized with extra deep pockets to provide an excellent fit on almost any height mattress. “Top or Bottom” labels act as visual cues to help you place the fitted sheet correctly on the mattress.
American Blossom Linens always puts the customer first with their high-quality, fairly priced modern vintage, classic style collection that will last and last. As geopolitical pressures push the price of imported goods further up, the tides are shifting in favor of local, Made in USA products. Erica, sewing supervisor at Thomaston mills, said, “We are so thankful and grateful to all of the customers who have supported our USA made products. I have such fun writing them each a thank you note which is included in each box.”
American Blossom linens is truly a USA product from the farm to the bed.
