Quality. Our reputation depends on great fabrics.

Not only do they need to feel soft, but they need to perform at all levels. We strive to provide high quality fabrics that fit our customer’s needs. Our state-of-the-art factory (Avante Textile) is completely vertical, spinning our own yarns, knitting and finishing. We use U.S. grown cotton from specifically selected regions to produce our yarns. Every bale of cotton is tested in our state-of-the-art laboratory, to ensure quality and consistency in all our fabrics.

Control. It’s our obsession.
