The quality of their products has made Wamsutta a household name, but the company’s fascinating history is less well-known. Here at PimaCott, we’re proud to partner with Wamsutta to bring our proven pure pima cotton into people’s homes. Their bed and bath products represent the highest quality in home linens, and we’re always curious about the story behind our favorite products. Join us as we learn a bit more about the craft and quality behind Wamsutta’s cotton goods.
Tradition and Innovation
Founded in 1846 on the banks of the Acushnet River in New Bedford, Massachusetts, Wamsutta was named after the son of a Native American chief who negotiated an early alliance with the English settlers of the Plymouth Colony. As the first of many textile producers in the area, Wamsutta’s leadership sparked the area’s transition from regional whaling center to a booming cotton mill hub. By 1892, Wamsutta was the largest cotton weaving plant in the world and was renowned for producing fine shirts, sheets, and other high-quality cotton products.
Despite their growth, Wamsutta never lost their focus on craftsmanship. As the company evolved into an internationally-recognized brand, they continued to merge classic techniques with innovative style. And as they grew, they sought our partners like PimaCott who could provide them with the highest-quality cotton available. It’s this combination of quality, tradition, and progress that’s made them a staple in American homes for more than 170 years.
