American Made Brand Fabric

Fabric that is 100% sourced and manufactured in America you say!? Heck yes! 

We are super excited to bring you this beautiful pallet of cotton solids from American Made Brand! AMB's mission is to reach back to and revive America's proud tradition of textiles. 

The entire process behind this beautiful fabric takes place right here in the USA. Farmers grow their cotton across southern and western states, then it is transported to local mills where it is spun into smooth beautiful cotton yarn. The yarn then travels to one of the oldest operating weavers in the country, and finally the yardage is dyed into a spectrum of stunning solids by yet another American company! 

To celebrate our love for American textiles, American Made Brand is hosting a competition: Farm To Fabric Challenge. They want to hear, through your quilt, what it means to you to have fabric production brought back to the USA. Quilts that celebrate the "Farm to Fabric" theme and that are made entirely from AMB fabric can be entered into this juried exhibition. Check out more details here.

We can't wait to see what you make with this beautiful, homegrown cotton fabric!
