Matouk Linens Factory
September 5, 2018
During my endless hunt for new bed linens I came across the most beautiful linens I had ever seen — Matouk linens. Every bedding set I fell in love with during late night Pinterest sessions ended up being a part of Matouk’s upscale line. They have the most gorgeous hand-stitched scalloped sheets and monogrammed pillow cases. Their duvets are soft and luxurious. Expensive, yes… but well worth the price.
Based in Fall River, Matouk is a three generation family run business established in 1929. Last month I had the pleasure of visiting their factory. I was really impressed that their line is almost entirely made in the USA. American-made is no easy feat. I was in awe of their operation powered by clean solar energy. Every item is produced from a combination of state of the art equipment and something that cannot be replicated — meticulous work by hand with a team of talented artisans who have a keen attention to detail. I loved watching one employee hand-cut the terry cloth towels, or another on the sewing machine stitching the perfect scallop edging on a pillowcase. I’m still amazed by how the seamstress was able to make each scallop perfectly identical. I don’t think I could do that with a marker on paper. Every product goes through several different hands and processes before being ironed and precisely hand-folded in preparation for its’ future home.
Nearly every linen is made to order with personalization being a huge part of the Matouk linen business. There are somewhere around 900 different thread colors to choose from. This is ideal if you are intent on having a particular bedroom color scheme.
I found the Matouk Factory store, connected to the factory, to be a wonderful detour if you are heading to the Cape from Rhode Island. The product range at the factory store is limited but it’s a great place to pick up new towels, fresh sheets, or a cozy robe. A sales team is available to help customers place an order for items that are not on hand or need to be personalized.
This post is not sponsored. I contacted their PR team for a tour in my excitement about the brand. I hope to showcase more local businesses that I’m loving in upcoming blog posts. I have a few hidden gems in mind! Stay tuned to see what linens we selected when I reveal our new bedroom.
