Lawrence County’s Red Land Cotton recognized at White House for Made in America Product Showcase
Red Land Cotton, an Alabama linen producer, represented the Yellowhammer State in the Made in America Product Showcase at the White House Monday, says an AL.com report.
President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, along with several members of the administration and White House officials, took a look at the products crafted from states across America.
Red Land Cotton out of Moulton has an interesting history. It all started when the sister of Mark Yeager, the head farmer and co-founder of the company, commented on a photo he had posted wishing for a set of sheets made of the red land cotton he produced. Yeager approached his daughter with the idea and the company was formed.
Made from cotton grown in Alabama, Red Land Cotton provides everything from sheet sets and quilts to pillowcases and dish towels.
Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL) praised the Lawrence County textile company on Twitter Monday.
#Alabama’s own Red Land Cotton will be on display at the @WhiteHouse today as part of the Made in America Product Showcase. Proud to see this #LawrenceCounty company representing our state on the national stage! https://t.co/I2myPINOOd

Red Land Cotton is the only textile company in the country that grows the cotton used to make their own products.
