GROWN IN ALABAMA
Situated at the foot of Bankhead National Forest, our farm has been home to the Yeager family for three generations. From the very beginning, it has been where we each, in turn, have learned the value of hard work and the importance of family. And it’s certainly hard work farming our renowned red soil. It indelibly tints everything it touches and turns to thick clay after a good rain. Growing here means being resilient and hearty. It’s true of our crops, and it’s true of our children.
Owned And Operated By Mark Yeager Since 1983, It Was His Vision And Ambition That Shaped It Into A Premier Source Of North Alabama Cotton.
In 1994, Mark Yeager built his own cotton gin, a huge undertaking that gave our family strict control over the quality of our cotton fibers. He has since spent years implementing sustainable farming practices across our thousands of acres of land until our farm was able to produce an unrivaled crop with minimal impact to the surrounding environment.
While farming is his passion, Mark has always had the mind of a business owner. It’s with that keen perspective and his intimate understanding of the cotton market that he identified an opportunity to do more with our high-quality crop. With the entire family working by his side, we set out to create heirloom-inspired linens from the homegrown cotton that we were growing for a level of quality we could take pride in and an integrated business model that could revitalize a waning cotton industry. And just like that, Red Land Cotton was born.
MADE IN THE USA
With its roots in the rich, red soil of North Alabama, our bed sheets, bath towels, and other home linens are made with the finest homegrown cotton our farm can produce. We realized long ago that the soil was our greatest asset, so careful thought goes into our farming practices. Our cotton is rain fed, never irrigated, and produced under the most up-to-date and sustainable farming techniques.
We then custom gin our cotton which allows us to ensure that only the finest fibers our farm has to offer become a part of Red Land Cotton linens. Through every step in the process, our linens receive an unsurpassed level of quality control.
From the spinning yarn to the final cut and sew, our linens are artfully made and manufactured here in the Southern United States as part of a rich textile tradition that spans decades and generations. We work closely with each of our vendors to achieve the best result. As we’ve traveled in this journey, our hearts have hurt over the empty manufacturing businesses that once employed so many American workers. We are dedicated to doing our part in bringing manufacturing back to the United States.
From a bed sheet passed down from the 1920s, we reverse engineered the original weave construction and yarn size to bring you linens that are truly heirloom-inspired.
Our bed sheets are unlike anything that is currently on the market. Not only are they exclusively a farm-to-home offering, but these linens are heirloom pieces, entitled to the same reverence that bed linens of yesteryear were due. Our bed linens are recreations of the bed linens of our ancestors from almost a century ago.
Our Leighton Bath Collection is made for us in Griffin, GA by one of the only towel manufacturers left in the USA. Our towels are finished with a dobby design created specifically for Red Land Cotton that features classic chevrons and decorative roping.
Our Classic Quilts are filled with 100% cotton batting, just like the heirloom quilts of yesteryear. The cotton batting is grown on our family farm in Alabama and manufactured for us in Waco, Texas. These quilts are lightweight yet warm and substantial — just like they used to be.
