Just in time for the President's Day, Fine Linen and Bath celebrates home textiles and accessories made in the USA!
In the world of luxury home textiles, you’ll hear a lot about legendary European craftsmanship, fine Egyptian and Turkish cotton, and sumptuous Chinese silk. But it may surprise you to learn that many of our most luxurious products -- from towels to bedding to lavish bath accessories -- are made right here in the United States!
As our nation prepares to observe President's Day, we think it’s the perfect time to showcase some of our American-made brands. Just as Fine Linen and Bath is proudly headquartered in Connecticut, these textile and design businesses have chosen to locate their manufacturing and design teams here in the United States.
Let’s take a moment to celebrate American made textiles and accessories. All of these companies are committed to producing world-class products while bettering the economy and well-being of their local communities.

As you can see, even in a textile era that is global in scope, US textile manufacturing remains an important force. American textiles are a point of great pride to all of us in the industry. Even over the past several years, with delays in global supply chain, disruption in mill hours, and other factors beyond manufacturer control, these examples of fine American manufacturing have continued to produce the very best in the textile industry.
