Where are your pillows made?
The fabrics we use for our pillows covers and pillowcases start either in a field in California (for our conventionally grown "American Made Brand" woven percale fabric) or in Texas (for our certified organic cotton knit). From there, the organic cotton is sent to a mill in North Carolina where it is spun and knitted and then shipped to us here in Virginia. The California cotton stays on the West Coast to be spun and woven into a lovely percale before coming to us.
The BPA-free water bottles from which our stuffing is made are collected from recycling bins all over the USA before being cleaned, chipped, extruded and finally clustered into our 100% eco-friendly Flex-Fill....just down the road in South Carolina.
Bits and Bobs:
Our zippers and thread originate only one stateline further south, aka Georgia. We love knowing that our efforts to keep our transportation and carbon-footprint small are proving successful and we continue to shrink that radius with new, local sources for sustainable packaging.
Sewing & Shipping:
All of the above pillow and pillowcase components arrive here in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia where our business headquarters and sewing facility happily reside under one roof. Our Team is made of local people who gather together to cut-out and sew and iron and fluff and package and discuss the goings-on in the world. And if a little gossip creeps into the conversation from time to time, well, we are only human after all.
