This month we highlight some of the amazing linen companies carried at Design Works. From blankets to throws, pillows to shawls, these companies are producing beautiful goods sure to add a bit of luxury to your home or wardrobe. In this issue we feature Brahms Mount, a phenomenal company located in Maine!
Brahms Mount weaves textiles with a classic American look. Their throws and blankets are soft, luxurious, and classically beautiful. Always remaining true to the authentic character and centuries-old textile tradition of Maine, their products have been capturing hearts since the company was founded in 1983.
Their blankets, throws and linen towels are woven on antique shuttle looms by local artisans in Monmouth, Maine. They use specially engineered yarns spun from natural fibers and colorfast, eco-friendly dyes. Blankets and throws come off the loom looking rich, organic, and resilient.
They pride themselves on playing a role in keeping American manufacturing alive and well. As one of the few remaining American textile mills, Brahms Mount buys only a portion of the yarns they use from abroad. All of their designs originate at their headquarters in Maine, and every textile is woven on looms by local artisans, just as they have done since the company was founded in 1983.
Join us as we look at some of the what it takes to make these beautiful blankets…
