Until 2019 Thomaston Mills, a family-owned bedding manufacturer since 1899, has been focused on the healthcare and hospitality market. 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 its production in the USA. In 2019 Thomaston introduced their new retail line of Made in USA organic cotton sheets which sell exclusively on their website at AmericanBlossomLinens.com. But that is not the end of the journey.
In March 2021 they introduced a USA made Herringbone blanket. In August 2021 they asked customers in a survey what new colors they would like to see added to the Herringbone Weave Blanket collection. Surprisingly, they received very similar responses with green and grey being the top choices. They then did further research to be sure they selected the most flattering colors available for the new blankets. Now, along with the original colors of American Harvest and Patriot Blue, they introduced Spring Sage and Mountain Grey to the collection. Customers love their blankets, as Jami P says, “Beyond expectations, our first American grown/made blanket has exceeded what we thought. Soft, not too heavy, my new favorite.” The blankets are available in the following sizes: Throw (50” x 70”), Twin (66” x 96”), Full/Queen (90” x 96”), and King/Cal King (108” x 96”).
In the same survey American Blossom Linens asked customers what other new products they would like to see added to the line. The top choice was bed pillows fully made in the USA with USA materials. They partnered with a company in New York that makes pillows in the USA using all domestic materials. The wool they use is gathered and processed by a carding mill in California which sources the wool from local farms. The pillow covers are crafted using a heavy cotton fabric made from cotton organically grown in West Texas and the pillows are sewn at a not-for-profit that provides support, job training and housing services to the disabled. Pillows are available in both standard and king sizes.
