WestPoint Home has been a trusted source for home textiles for nearly 200 years—and they have yet to slow down or show their age! They have been experimenting with textiles and fabrics since the early part of the nineteenth century, constantly searching out ways to make newer, better products that will continue to meet the evolving needs of their customers. WestPoint Home’s longevity is the result of unwavering commitment to innovation, science and new technologies coupled with a trendsetting eye for home fashion.
WestPoint Home’s history dates back to 1813 when Nathaniel "Captain Nat" Stevens began manufacturing woolen broadcloth in a converted stone gristmill in North Andover, Massachusetts. Right away, Stevens and his son, Moses, began experimenting with wool, cotton and flannel. They created new fabrics and fashion, such as the "Arabian Suiting," a fancy pattern flannel made by blending wool and cotton. They discovered that when dyed, the wool would take on the color of the dye, while the cotton stayed white, creating a new, sought-after fabric pattern.
Present-day WestPoint Home is the descendent of this North Andover company, which later evolved into J.P. Stevens, and two other prominent manufacturing companies that date back to the mid and late nineteenth century: Pepperell Manufacturing Company and West Point Manufacturing Company. Today, WestPoint Home looks to its heritage and tradition—our predecessors' unfailing curiosity and sense of discovery—to guide our vision for the future. They are proud to be one of the leading global manufacturers and distributors of the highest-quality home textiles. WestPoint Home’s brands are some of the most trusted and well-known in home fashion, including Martex, Vellux, Utica, Grand Patrician and Lady Pepperell, among many others. You will even find Westpoint Home bedding sets and towels in one out of every three hotels throughout the country. WestPoint Home is committed to maintaining the highest levels of customer care and creating the best products the home fashion industry has to offer. WestPoint Home is built on a solid, centuries-old foundation, combining the best parts of our past—their craftsmanship, quality and service—with their innovation, unique sense of style and global reach.
