Starting back in 1896, American Silk Mills has been a boutique weaving and design establishment that specializes in exquisite and intricate interior residential and contract fabrics. They incorporate a full service design staff as well as experienced weaving artisans to master the art of textile construction. They even work internationally with other novelty mills which has allowed for a wide breadth of products without sacrificing quality or creative design.
Headquartered in Plains, Pennsylvania American Silk has produced yarns and unique novelty fabrics of different palettes. They are widely known for their distinctive stripes and plaids saturated by color, and the same can be said of their combed-cotton velvets (continuing the famous Cheney tradition).
Want to tweak one of the many designs or products already in American Silk Mills’ inventory? One of their great assets is allowing customers to tweak preexisting designs for their own needs or simply working with their studio staff to conjure up an original fabric.
One of their more recently championed textiles is Sensuede (along with their family of suedes). Made from recycled microfibers this new fabric manages to be both pleasing to the touch and durable, or as they say, “Able to me the most demanding applications!’
Stop by their website to get an idea of what is already available at your fingertips then give them a call. You might have just found your next “Partner in Skein”.
I know, that pun was a stretch but I wove it in pretty well.
