MILL OF AMERICA
Way down South, there's a special
place called Griffin, Georgia...
OUR U.S. BASED 1888 MILLS FACILITY, LOCATED IN GRIFFIN, GEORGIA,
represents a true nod to American heritage as one of the last remaining towel
manufacturing plants in the USA. The facility was started in 2015 by a group of
textile veterans who understood the importance of honoring the legacy of their
industry and who knew that its deep roots could be traced right back to the Griffin
community. Their focused, visionary goal resulted in U.S. produced products continuing
to play a major part in our company’s overall global manufacturing strategy to this day.
Our Griffin facility employs over 200 people, many of whom have worked in the textile industry for decades. These USA manufacturing jobs support local families, belong to people who are active leaders in their communities, and provide economic growth to both the greater Griffin area as well as the US economy overall.
Led by our Brand Purpose of "Weaving a Better World," 1888 Mills is committed to honoring the heritage of the textile industry, preserving USA manufacturing jobs and maintaining high quality Made in USA products. Our Griffin Terry items will always reflect the American innovation and craftsmanship initially pioneered all those years ago.
*Products are woven and sewn in USA with USA grown cotton yarns and, in some instances, imported yarns.
