Cone Mills - The origin of CMFG's new Cone Mills Indigo Chambray shirt.
You can’t talk about American-made fabrics for long without running into the name Cone Mills. Located in North Carolina, this mill has been around since 1891. At the peak of its production, Cone employed approximately 10,000 employees and continues to produce domestically at it's White Oak plant in Greensboro, NC.
Known for it's denim production, it is the source of Levi's famous 501 shrink-to-fit jean, made from vintage shuttle looms, from Greensboro's nearby cotton supply. They also make a damn fine indigo chambray - denim's lightweight cousin.
