Filled with beautiful old brick factories, the city of New Bedford was the setting for the novel Moby Dick and the heart of the whaling industry in the 1800s. During its heyday it was home to a thriving textile industry with over 70 mills. The Great Depression and overseas production hit New Bedford hard, but its still a gem. We created a little factory where we produce our block-printed pieces. We are thrilled to be playing a small part in reviving US production in this historic city.
