Clothing for men and women, hand made in India using traditional methods. “Our garments feature a range of artisan techniques. Depending on the garment these may include, handwoven cloth, block printing, ikat dyeing, natural dyes, and many forms of surface design. We make naturally dyed clothing and accessories designed to be worn everyday. We want to make it easy to find clothing that you love that isn’t made using toxic dyes and chemicals or plastic fibers…Whenever possible, we search for the highest quality all-natural and organic dyes and fibers, including grown-in-Texas organic cotton, biodegradable coconut husk beads, and organic indigo. Our mission is to show that it’s possible to make clothing that’s good for people and good for the environment, and still make it something you want to wear every day.”
Though the name says “woolen mill,” today Amana makes and sells high quality 100% cotton products for the home: blankets & throws, table and kitchen linens. Plus heavy duty totes made from reclaimed cotton yarn and fabric with full grain leather handles. “We are a community of families, farmers and artisans that are nearly as old as Iowa itself. Quality craftsmanship isn’t a coincidence, it’s second nature. Our textiles are woven in the same building that was first used more than a century and a half ago…The exacting methods used today were brought from the old world by Amana’s first settlers, while the pioneering spirit of those first families continues to drive new innovations.”
