Brahms Mount’s History
Brahms Mount has been in the textile business since the company was founded in 1983. They were determined to bring back American manufacturing and classic design. With a firm commitment to natural fibers like flax, wool, and cotton, they steadily built a loyal following. Brahms Mount’s natural textiles stood in contrast to synthetic fibers like acrylic and poly that were popular in the 1980s. Keeping the Maine textile tradition alive, their pieces are woven by a core staff of skilled local craftspeople using antique shuttle looms.
Brahms Mount Today
Working out of a mill overlooking the Kennebec River, they are proud to play a role in keeping American manufacturing alive and well. Also, they are proud to produce pieces that feel clean and untreated, rich, and resilient. Their beautiful colors are spun from the finest natural fibers and are achieved with eco-friendly dyes for the least impact on the environment. Because of this, their textiles are uniquely American, sustainable, and wonderfully luxurious.
For easy care, the blankets are washable (carefully!) and the eco-friendly dyes are colorfast. These durable blankets can be used again and again, year after year.
