FINE COTTON FACTORY CREATES ‘WHISPER-LIGHT’ PILLOW LINER THAT IMPROVES PRODUCT FEEL & MAKES MANUFACTURING MORE EFFICIENT
TORONTO – Fine Cotton Factory, an innovative textiles manufacturer, has designed a creative, light-weight encasement that gives pillow suppliers a liner that allows the true feel of the pillow to come through. The liner works well with a variety of fillings, including goose down, feathers, solid foam or chopped visco, and because of its construction, makes manufacturing more efficient.
In addition to its use for bed pillows, the liner is applicable for decorative throw pillows. By keeping the filling contained, the liner allows for easy cleaning of or replacing the external cover. The polyester liner also helps keep the filling clean.
“Our unique pillow liner is a creative solution for pillow manufacturers and consumers,” said Skip Kann, director of special projects for Fine Cotton Factory. “The line is lightweight making it easy to manipulate in the manufacturing process, yet sturdy so that it holds up and doesn’t tear. The whisper-light fabric does nothing to impede the comfort level of pillows.”
The liner’s tubular design speeds manufacturing times by requiring only the ends be sewn or heat sealed. Available in 18-inch, 20-inch and 22-inch widths, the liner is white, and Fine Cotton Factory offers custom dyeing to meet manufacturers’ aesthetic needs.
“We see great advantages from this liner,” Kann said. “With its weight between that of a stocking and a very light legging, it’s as if there’s nothing between the decorative cover and the pillow fill. Our ability to custom dye the liner gives decorative pillow suppliers the ability to key the color to the external cover ensuring a pulled together design.”
