New Member Announcement: Colonial Mills

The New England Lean Consortium is pleased to announce the addition of a new member, Colonial Mills of Pawtucket, RI.

From the Colonial Mills website: https://www.colonialmills.com

Colonial Mills has been crafting quality braided products for 40 years. We make all of our products in our Pawtucket, Rhode Island facility, located just down the street from Slater Mill, the birthplace of America's textile industry.

Colonial Mills brings innovation to brand. Through quality, American craftsmanship and adaptable design, we are creating the next generation of braided home fashions. We see braid as a method of construction, not a style. It is this thinking that allows us to combine the traditional and the contemporary. Our approach reflects people's eclectic sense of personal style. From the boldly modern to the classically rustic, we are proudly made to order here in the USA.
