Nashville, Tenn. – Red Land Cotton, makers of the only farm-to-fabric linens on the market, announce today the launch of their soft-hued Baby Nadine Collection. Co-Founder Anna Yeager Brakefield and her husband are expecting a new little “boll” of joy in June, which inspired the new line.
When Brakefield found out she was expecting in the fall of 2017, she knew she wanted to create bedding for her baby that was just as soft, safe and local as the bedding she creates for adults.
“I wanted to impart the heirloom feeling that envelopes us in comfort and reminds us of home,” Brakefield said. “We decided to name the line after my free-spirited, paternal grandmother whose confidence and creativity were sources of inspiration for the RLC line.”
The new collection is available in two new colors: baby pink and baby blue ticking stripe. The linens are also available in white, natural and charcoal ticking. All bedding is made of 100 percent cotton exclusively from the family’s Alabama farm and finished by hand for added quality control. Baby quilts and children’s linens, designed to transition children from the crib to a “big kid” bed, are also part of the line.
Product specifications and additional photos are available on request.
What Makes Red Land Cotton linens so special? Plenty:
Inspired by the cool and crisp comfort of a 1920’s bed sheet and artfully crafted by a third-generation farm family in North Alabama, father and daughter entrepreneurs Mark Yeager and Anna Yeager Brakefield paired art with agriculture by reverse engineering heirloom linens to discover the secrets to creating the finest, most comfortable linens possible.
The most important part of creating the finest linens? The cotton, of course! Red Land Cotton doesn’t source its cotton from other farmers; they ARE the farmers. The cotton is grown, harvested and custom ginned on Red Land Farms in North Alabama. Subsequent parts of the process are supervised by Anna and Mark in South Carolina.
RLC’s signature yarn size and weave construction make these one-of-a-kind linens incredibly supple, soft and simply beautiful. RLC linens are made with long-staple cotton fibers with a substantial yarn size that is much thicker yarn than what is traditionally used in sheeting, so they are breathable but also soft and durable.
The cotton grown on Red Land Farms is produced using sustainable and conservative farming techniques. The cotton is rain-fed and grown under a sustainable production model that respects the local ecosystem. The goal is to use 100 percentof the cotton with no waste, so tea towels and pillow covers are limited-time items made from “seconds” fabric, and quilt squares are cut from the fabric leftover from making fitted sheets.
Anna and Mark are focused on keeping their cotton as natural as possible, and they work with their suppliers to minimize the use of finishing chemicals. As a result, Red Land Cotton’s signature fabric washes like a linen with a slight wrinkle.
In addition to the new Baby Nadine Collection, Red Land Cotton creates sheets, pillow cases, shams, duvets, tea towels, pillow covers and towels (the ONLY 2-ply towels made in the U.S.). Call 205-235-9792 or redlandcotton.com
