A long time in the making.
We’ve always had a presence in New York. In 1991, Arkwright Home’s founding partner Bob Curran serviced the five boroughs from a tiny warehouse space in the meatpacking district. Walking hockey bags of samples to neighborhood bodegas and discount chains (uphill, both ways, in the snow:). As the business grew, the appetite for better showrooms, warehousing, trade markets, marketing assets, and sales teams has groomed Arkwright Home into an international success.
We still carry the bargains and opportunities our founding customers love. Now, we partner with more notable mills producing better opportunities for value.
Since 2016 we have built a stable of first-quality textile brands to service various market segments. We count The Sloppy Chef as one of our favorite successes. Previously known as “Logan Square,” with two lines of opportunity kitchen textiles, the rebrand happened in 2019. Since then, The Sloppy Chef has blossomed into a complete line of cotton and microfiber kitchen textiles. Recently, the brand won Home Textiles Today’s Reader Ranking Award for Best Kitchen Textiles… We also took home the award for Best Table Linen.
A new direction.
2022 marked the beginning of a new era in Arkwright Home’s product growth. The Aston & Arden, luxury textiles brand, started as a single oversized pinstripe cabana resort towel. The line sold quickly and gave us proof of concept to move forward with more luxurious textiles. The brand soft-launched throughout the year, starting with our first foray into Turkish Bath Towels. Over the following months, we added three more towel lines, T600 sateen, cotton-alternative sheets such as eucalyptus Tencel and bamboo rayon, and luxe blankets. Response to the brand has been positive, especially online, in resort destinations such as Bermuda and national retail chains such as Macy’s.
