Until 2019 Thomaston Mills, a family-owned bedding manufacturer since 1899 has been focused on the healthcare and hospitality market. Hilton, Marriott and Radisson are among their customers. Nearly all of the textile manufacturing moved overseas in the 1980’s and hundreds of thousands of jobs were lost but Thomaston was different and kept it production in the USA. In 2019 Thomaston introduced their new retail line of Made in USA organic cotton bedding which is sold exclusively on their website at AmericanBlossomLinens.com.
Due to supply chain issues with PPE during the COVID-19 pandemic there has been an increased interest in products made in America and sales increased for the bedding line by 400%.
In June the company sent an email to customers asking what other made in USA bedding products they were looking for. Many who answered the survey said blankets, towels and pillows. Founder Janet Wischnia was thrilled with the results and the company will be pursuing all of those new product lines. The company decided to start with blankets. After searching they decided to partner with a family-owned mill in Monmouth Maine that has been making blankets since 1850. The new Herringbone blankets which were just introduced are of course made from USA organic cotton which is 100% traceable and farmed without harmful pesticides or chemical defoliants.
The American Blossom Linens blanket is available in sizes Queen (90 x 96″), King (108 x 96″) and a Throw (50 x 70″). Currently all sizes are available in two colors, American Harvest and Patriot Blue. American Harvest is made from a blend of natural West Texas organic cotton yarn and Foxfibre® Coyote Brown Heirloom yarn. Patriot Blue is made from West Texas organic cotton yarn and blue yarn dyed using low impact dyes from a century old North Carolina mill. All blankets are machine washable and dryable.
