Come Look Inside the Brolly Sheets Cotton Mill

  • 3 minute read
One of the reasons why we chose the cotton mill from which our Brolly Sheets fabric comes from is that quality matters. Yes, we could have chosen another cotton factory with lower overheads. Yes, this would have reduced the price of our bedding products. Yes, we could have made more money by getting a bigger profit.
But we didn’t. Instead we chose our cotton mill, which is one of the top three cotton mills in China. Today we’re going to walk you through this mill, and we’re certain you’ll see the many reasons why we chose it.

We Use One of China’s Top Three Cotton Mills

Until I started Brolly Sheets, I had never really thought of how cotton got from the bush to the piece of fabric. My visit to our chosen Chinese cotton mill showed me that the process is way more complicated and time consuming than anything I could have ever thought!
Brolly Sheets cotton is made in one of the top three cotton mills in China. It was established in 1919 and moved into purpose built buildings about 15 years ago. Each of the buildings were specifically designed to house the modern, Swiss made machinery they contain. Consequently, the machinery is safe to operate, and is located in buildings which are large, light and airy.

When we visited the mill, our guides were more than happy to show us around. We were impressed with the quality of the buildings, and the machinery inside. There was plenty of room for us to move around, and they were very well lit.

Our chosen mill produces over 50 million metres of fabric each year. The expertise the workers have produces the highest quality cotton: a quality which you, our customer, demands. The space within the buildings, how clean they were, and the impressive well maintained machinery only confirmed to us that we have made the right decision in choosing this mill.
