Brahms Mount was recently featured in Kennebec County’s Video TourBook in the Economic Development section. We’re honored to be included in the TourBook along with a number of other top notch businesses located in Kennebec County.
Earlier this year, we were featured by the Maine Office of Tourism as Maine designers. In it, Claudia Brahms – a founder and lead designer – and David Kaufman – owner – share their love of living and working in Maine.
Claudia shares some of her inspiration, including Maine’s wildlife, nature, and vegetation; as well as a bit of her story and how she came to love design.
Recently, we happened upon this fantastic article in the American Wool and Cotton Reporter, from the issue on May 14, 1903. You can view the original copy below:
Our favorite part? The section entitled “Textile School for Weavers”. This lesson closely resembles, if not exactly, our modern-day techniques for warping our fibers. You can even check out our warper in action in a two part video series that we created: Part 1 – What is the Creel? and Part 2 – The Warper.
Another favorite? The quiz at the end. Can you answer all of the questions after taking the lesson?
Fall is officially upon us, and winter isn’t far behind. But while all of the kiddos are out trick or treating, we thought we’d treat you to a fun selection for the season: our orange blankets!
Light and bright, our cotton throws and linen/cotton day blankets are still perfect for cool days and chilly nights. So cuddle up in one of these bright holiday blankets and start passing out the candy!
It’s that time of year. Time to switch out your summer blankets for the winter ones. Blankets vary as far as care, but many need the same TLC when it comes to storage. Follow these few simple steps in order to keep your blankets in the best of shape next season.
2. Cedar lined chests or closets are ideal for blanket storage, as the cedar deters moths and other insects from bothering the fabrics.
3. Other storage options include plastic bins for under the bed or in a closet.
4. Sealed plastic bags that came with your blanket are another option for storage. Vacuum storage bags are another option if you lose or throw away your bags; or simply want to conserve a little more space.
5. Pull out your blanket at the beginning of next season and enjoy!
We’re partial to our blankets, but we get especially excited when others agree! Here are a few of the latest (and greatest!) online posts about Brahms Mount. We’re equally honored and humbled to hear that you love our products as much as we do!
Merino wool is one of our favorite blankets – and it’s no surprise why – there are a ton of reasons wool makes a great all-season blanket, and these are just five.
Forget about multiple blankets, there’s no need for too many layers with our wool. Not only that, but our Merino Lambswool is light, making it the perfect fall accessory.
Wool? Breathable? But of course. You can stay warm and cozy without the bulk of a traditional winter throw.
The perfect all season blanket, you’ll stay warm all year long with these beautiful blankets. Not only that, but our Merino wool has warmth and insulating properties.
That’s right. We’re ending the itchy wool stigma right here and now. Wool has come a long way from that itchy Christmas sweater. Much research has been conducted to perfect the spinning and weaving processes, resulting in one of the finest and softest fibers available.
5. Machine washable
Don’t worry about special washing instructions; our merino wool blankets can be thrown right in the wash!
It’s September in Maine and that can only mean one thing: Autumn is right around the corner! What better way to get ready for fall than stocking up on some of your favorite blankets?!
We’ve talked about the many uses for day blankets before, but the truth is day blankets are perfect for fall. They make great stadium throws for the next football or soccer game. Day blankets are also perfect for an early fall picnic, just in time to watch the leaves change color. With plenty of colors and designs to choose from, you really can’t go wrong with one of these blankets!
