Roslyn, NY - (November, 2015) - The Northwest Company, a recognized leader in the home textile industry and the number one blanket and throw manufacturer in the United States has teamed up with Monterey Mills and Denali© Home Collection.  The Northwest Company, manufacturer of specialty licensed home furnishings products recently signed a manufacturing agreement, whereby, Monterey will provide Denali® "Made in the USA" luxurious throws, exclusively for The Northwest Company. 

This fall, customers will be able to buy throws knitted with their favorite NFL team logo.  Monterey Mills will manufacture all of the fabric in their two US factories located in Janesville, WI and Tarboro, NC.

Denali® has been selling its luxury brand since 1998 to over 500 retail stores across the United States.  Each Denali blanket is a custom art design and no two are exactly alike.  Current licensed blankets are yarn based, printed and manufactured in China. The Northwest's new blankets are fiber based and jacquard knit, instead of printed, and manufactured in the USA.  The Company will start with NFL team blankets this November and then move to MLB, NHL, NBA and the collegiate market in the near future. 

"This is an exciting collaboration for both companies," noted Daniel Sinykin, President and CEO of Monterey Mills.  "The Northwest Company has been producing beautiful and innovative products for the most widely recognized brands in sports and entertainment for over 20 years, so we're honored to work alongside a fellow "Made in the USA" partner," explained Sinykin.   

"We pride ourselves on our commitment to quality," said Ross Auerbach, President and CEO of The Northwest Company.  "The Northwest is equally excited and proud to announce this exciting relationship with the largest sliver knitting mill in the United States.  It is only the beginning of what promises to be a long future together," added Auerbach.
