Where does the name Brahms Mount come from?
Maine’s textile tradition stretches back to the 1800s, when almost every family spun fine yarn from local flax and wool, as well as from imported cotton. To fulfill rapidly growing demand, mills sprang up along major rivers. Maine textiles became world-renowned. Generations thrived. Building upon the strength of this tradition, Claudia Brahms and Noel Mount founded Brahms Mount more than thirty years ago in Hallowell, Maine, and now, having sold the company, still devote themselves to the design and manufacturing of its beautiful handmade blankets. They were determined to bring back American manufacturing, in addition to natural fibers and classic designs. Making pieces from natural flax, wool, and cotton fibers, they hired local craftspeople to run their antique shuttle looms. From the beginning, their blankets and throws were in demand as customers were looking for a unique, durable, and beautiful product. Their brand is defined by fine craftsmanship, superior quality, and iconic style.
