“I am so happy to introduce the launch of the Baxter Mill Archive. This vast design library consists of over 400,000 antique documents, European textile books, and original, hand-painted artwork. The documents originate from the Fort Mill Manufacturing Company, founded in the 1880s, Lowenstein and Sons, founded in 1889, and Springs Industries, one of the largest textile manufacturing companies in the world. I call the archive my ‘candy shop’!
What truly sets the Baxter Mill Archive apart is our brilliant designers that thoughtfully remaster the archive documents to create one-of-a-kind collections. Their years of unparalleled design experience combined with extensive knowledge of creating repeats and printing and weaving processes make them uniquely suited to assist you in creating your next original collection.
We have opened the Baxter Mill Archive vault to share its beauty with each and every one of you! Enclosed in this look book are our Spring/Summer 2017 trends along with a small collection of designs created by remastering the archives.
My creative mother always said that we are all surrounded by great ideas, we just have to reach up and grab one! I encourage everyone who wants to be inspired or is looking for their next great idea to take a trip down to the lovely town of Rock Hill, SC, just 20 miles south of Charlotte. Or, contact us for more information about how you can harness the Baxter Mill Archive for your own collections. I invite you to come play in the ‘candy shop’!”
