Driving down Route 48 on the North Fork of Long Island, you zoom past a seaside motel called the Sound View Inn. It both hugs and hides the Long Island Sound from the road with its long and lean Mid-Century frame. It’s so authentically classic you half expect to see a 50’s teal Opel station wagon in the lot.
The Fall collection was inspired by this shiny, happy period in our history when cars were beautiful, letters were handwritten and pink was a common exterior paint color. And most important, people didn’t have so many things--- And what they did have was made to last.
This era is more than design inspiration for us, it’s a map back to manufacturing with integrity.
The quiet beauty of an American roadside relic like the Sound View Inn made our minds spin: These are the links to our past that make us feel good. The Good ‘Ole Days. My grandfather sold shower curtains door-to-door in the 50’s. He met each of his customers. Shook their hands. Honesty. Simplicity. Happy. More stops on our map.
What does Made in Brooklyn mean to us?
It means we can meet with our manufacturer often. Communicate in person. Pick up our order in our car.
Touch every shower curtain we make. Clip a thread here or there if we need to.
It means we can partner with a “factory” that feels more like an art studio. Where beautiful piles of fabric are hand cut, new projects are being plotted and local designers pop in and out. We’ve even seen some of the makers jump onto the production line to speed things up.
It means we can feel good about our production and in turn you can feel good about your purchase.
As a small company, we do everything ourselves from sourcing our raw materials to vetting each production partner. This will help us scale the company in a way that stays true to our primary beliefs. It’s hard to un-know what you know, you know? So rest assured that when Quiet Town grows into a mature brand it will still be the idealist dreamer at heart.
