Made In America Blankets Warm U.S. Economy

FALL RIVER, Mass., Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- While the once burgeoning textile industry has long since left Massachusetts, The American Blanket Company is bringing it back, along with jobs in a stagnant economy.

American Blanket Company, founded earlier this year, produces high quality bedding blankets, throws and baby blankets in its Fall River facility. Each blanket is brushed and sheared meticulously, on both the face and back half a dozen times, eliminating the chance for shedding or pilling. The blankets are stitched using a multi-needle, top and bottom, cover-stitch machine for enhanced durability. All blankets can be machine-washed and dried and are warrantied for life.

According to Rick Lotuff, founder of American Blanket Company and a MA textile veteran, "American Blanket Company is dedicated to offering the kind of quality consumers don't see anymore. Our products are created to stand the test of time." Lotuff continued, "We search the world for the highest quality fibers and fabrics, and we are committed to investing in American manpower for producing all of our finished products."

Due to the early success, the company is expanding, bringing more U.S. jobs to the area. Lotuff estimates that his staff will double in the next 12 months.

The American Blanket Company has three exceptional fabrics to offer: The Peaceful Touch™, a smooth, low-pile micro fleece; the Supple Touch™ a plush, medium-pile blanket; and the Luster Loft™, a slightly thicker, higher pile blanket that is luxuriously soft and finished with a shimmer effect. Bedding blankets, throws and baby blankets are available in all three materials and in an assortment of contemporary and stylish colors.

Aside from helping to keep warm, the right blanket can induce relaxation, create comfort and even enhance a mood. And, for American Blanket Company, tranquility comes wrapped and ready; shipped gift-wrapped in a decorative box with a ribbon, American Blanket Company blankets make for the perfect gift. Blankets can also be monogrammed for a personal touch.
