Dan River bedding is some of the finest bedding you’ll find at any price. The Dan River line provides some of the most popular and creative designs for adults, children, toddlers and babies. How did the bedding from Dan River gain such a fine reputation? Over one hundred years of experience; that’s the answer.
In 1882 in Danville, Virginia, along the banks of the Dan River, a group of men banded together and started a cotton mill. In 1883, this mill began to create yarn and fabric from the cotton. In 1970, the company became known, after several name changes that each shorted the name, as Dan River Inc (DRI). DRI has become the leading manufacturer and marketer of light-weight, yarn-die woven fabrics and textile products for home fashions and apparel fabrics in the entire Western Hemisphere.
Dan River Inc. designs, manufactures and markets a line of bedding such as comforters, pillowcases, sheets, shams, bed skirts, decorative pillows, draperies and matching accessories for the home and institutional markets. Today, DRI employs more than 3,500 workers in Danville and Brookneal, Virginia; Harris and Morven, North Carolina and Canada.
What has made Dan River Inc. such a popular source for bedding? The answer to this question is quality and custom service. For example, Dan River produces percale bedding in 180 thread counts, available in white and six other stock colors. Yet, if you want a custom color, say for your new hotel chain, you can have that color produced by making a large purchase. No many companies that produce bedding provide this type of customer service and quality products too. The fitted sheets made by Dan River are of exceptional quality. The corners are diagonally stitched to provide the strongest possible corners where most of the stress is placed on a fitted sheet. Many of the designs are available with standard or deep pockets.
Dan River luxury bedding items are available in a wide variety of colors and are used by some of the finest luxury hotels and inns as well as in homes that consider using only the finest bedding.
Dan River also produces bedding with borders and piping to create a special look. If desired, they will produce bedding with company logos to be used by hospitality chains. Hospitals and health care institutions also enjoy Dan River linens with their 180 thread count, multi colored Remembrance line of bedding. Lots of sizes are available in this 50% cotton / 50% polyester fabric bedding.

Dan River Inc. bedding is known for its ability to hold the bright colors through many washes. The 100% cotton sheets are 100% machine washable in cold water.

Take these thick bedding items to a commercial washing machine to ensure you don’t abuse your home washer’s capabilities, resulting in an expensive repair bill.
