How Surplus Fabric became School Uniforms

“Be the change you want to see in the world.”
Mahatma Gandhi

13391500_1060673650678943_2670604103637763545_oWe recently had the opportunity to donate fabric from our Seersucker bedskirts/bedspreads to a wonderful Maine-based organization doing incredible global work, called Partners for World Health (PWH).

Not only does PWH collect and redistribute surplus medical supplies to hospitals in countries in need, they also organize several Medical Missions trips each year, bringing much needed volunteer health workers to hospitals across Africa and Southeast Asia.

Partners for World Health_ seersucker donationWhen we learned of this incredible program, we were immediately inspired to get involved.

At the time, we had a surplus of fabric from our line of luxury Seersucker bedskirts/bedspreads.

We weren’t sure how this fabric could be used: sewing materials, as a means for women to earn money? Bedding for hospital beds or incubators?  Though the exact usage was to be determined, the possibilities were many. And we were so happy to give in any way we could.

PWH passed the fabric along to another incredible group called Dress a Girl around the World (the Southern Maine chapter), who then used it to create school uniforms for children in rural Uganda.

With our donation, 150 girls in Uganda will have the uniforms necessary for attending school. Our fabric was also used to create 100 pairs of shorts for boys, as part of their school uniforms as well.

We’re thrilled to see our donated fabric being put to such an amazing use, and we look forward to working with Partners for World Health whenever we can.

We encourage you to check out both organizations to learn more about the great work they’re doing and how you can get involved:

Cuddledown hosts Maine students for Manufacturing Day!

We were so excited to host students from four local high schools as part of Manufacturing Day! Designed to educate students about career paths in manufacturing, this national event is celebrated by more than 2,000 companies across the U.S. As we make all of our pillows, comforters and featherbeds in Maine, it was a wonderful opportunity for us to open up our manufacturing facility to students and show them what we do. We’re already looking forward to next year’s event!
