Ellison intros 100% U.S.-made bedding
Thomas Russell -- Furniture Today, March 20, 2013
At the New York Market - Ellison has introduced a line of duvet and sheet sets that has been completely produced in the U.S., from the cotton to the spinning to the weaving to the finishing to the cut-and-sew.
"We feel we are the only company out there that can weave wide-width sheeting domestically," said Kevin Finlay, ceo, who cut his teeth as an American mill executive. "We've got something that is truly, 100% made here."
Debuting under the brand Ellison American Classic, the solid-color sheets will be offered in 300-count and 400-count constructions in six colors. The duvet cover program will initially be offered in white and champagne only - and is trimmed with eyelet made in the U.S.
The up-market collection is made with Supima cotton in a percale weave, "a very traditional American construction," Finlay noted.
