HISTORICAL WEAVING FOR THIRTY-SEVEN YEARS
"HAVE NOTHING IN YOUR HOME THAT YOU DON'T KNOW TO BE USEFUL OR BELIEVE TO BE BEAUTIFUL."
Family Heirloom Weavers is a third generation family-owned and operated American weaving business in York, Pennsylvania. Founded in 1983 by David Kline and his wife, Carole, the company is now run by their son, Patrick, remaining as one of the few mills left in the country producing historically accurate and authentic reproduction textiles. Having started Family Heirloom Weavers with very little, the mill continues to operate 37 years later, with 40 antique shuttle looms and vintage jacquard machines and 30 employees.
With a passion for American history, a meticulous attention to detail and authenticity, and enthusiasts of the labor-intensive weaving process, they have become internationally known for their craft. They have been commissioned to create textiles for nine presidential homes (Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington), over 75 historic properties (Mark Twain's childhood home, Gracie Mansion) museums (Smithsonian) and movie sets (Downtown Abbey, Lincoln, Amistad). A proud and notable commission was their exact recreation of the iconic Star Spangled Banner that flew over Fort McHenry during the War of 1812 in celebration of its 200th birthday.
We work with them to produce an heirloom-quality textile collection for the home using natural fibers and eco-friendly renewable yarns in neutral muted tones. Similar to our garments, they are simple, timeless, functional and purposeful. Our collection includes blankets, throws, towels and napkins.
