This year, Swans Island Company celebrates 25 years of handweaving fine textiles on the Maine coast. We began as a small passion project in 1992, and are proud to have achieved international recognition for our commitment to doing things the old-fashioned way here in Maine.
To celebrate our island heritage in this anniversary year, we’ve created a special line of throws – The Island Collection – made exclusively with fleeces from Vinalhaven Island’s Long Cove Farm. These anniversary edition throws embody our company philosophy: simple design, traditional techniques, and the rustic beauty of natural fibers.
We know that the continued success of our business is a testament to the strength of Maine communities. This year, we’re donating 10% of Island Collection Throw sales to the Island Institute, a local non-profit. For more about the important work done by our friends at the Island Institute, visit them on the web: islandinstitute.org.
