Ellison intros 100% U.S.-made bedding

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.

I'm Tom Russell and have worked at Furniture/Today since August 2003. Since then, I have covered the international side of the business from a logistics and sourcing standpoint. Since then, I also have visited several furniture trade shows and manufacturing plants in Asia, which has helped me gain perspective about the industry in that part of the world. As I continue covering the import side of the business, I look forward to building on that knowledge base through conversations with industry officials and future overseas plant tours. From time to time, I will file news and other industry perspectives online and, as always, welcome your response to these Web postings.
