Didriks Home Furnishings Adds Hallowell, Maine Based Weavers Brahms Mount

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Nov. 5, 2010    Didriks – www.didriks.com – announces the introduction of Brahms Mount artisanal blankets and textiles to its home furnishing collection. Brahms Mount, a signature American brand preserving a tradition of fine textile weaving in Hallowell, Maine, complements Didriks existing collection of high quality textiles which include Libeco Home, Jokipiin Pellava, and Chilewich.

Brahms Mount blankets, throws and towels are woven on antique shuttle looms in an 1866 historic mill. Brahms Mount maintains an uncompromising attention to quality and to natural fibers and dyes to create luxurious fabrics of superior drape and hand. Each finished piece is assembled and inspected by seasoned artisans.

Although best known for their superlative cotton blankets, Brahms Mount textiles also include linen, merino wool, and alpaca. Brahms Mount is the only weaver of linen blankets in North America.

Jonathan Henke of Didriks said, “The emphasis on quality and the aesthetic of Brahms Mount is a perfect complement for our store, where we also offer other brands with artisanal appeal such as Simon Pearce pottery and glassware. These are blankets that will last a lifetime. We are very pleased to offer them to our customers.”
