About Garnet Hill

Beautifully designed.
Responsibly sourced.
Uniquely Garnet Hill

Where we began.

In the 1970s, Peggy Kirschner and Grant Dowse returned to their rural New Hampshire home from a trip to Europe carrying something new: pure cotton flannel sheets. Softer and warmer than anything they’d found in the states, European flannel became our inaugural offering, under the masthead The Original Natural Fibers Catalog. You can read a personal story by Betty, an early Garnet Hill employee. Her first desk was an ironing board.

Where we are.

Two words describe our design ethos today: Beautiful, Naturally.

From our New England headquarters, we travel the world in pursuit of elevated materials, inspiration, and true artisanship. We design for women, kids and home, also curating collections with such distinguished design partners as EILEEN FISHER.

We're passionate about social and environmental responsibility, treat people ethically, and partner with like-minded vendors, such as Green Cotton. We give back to the community through organizations with local and national reach.

Where we're headed.

We're pursuing ever-more sustainable fibers and practices.

Among today's offerings are organic cotton, eco-merino wool, Tencel® made from eucalyptus trees, linen made from sustainable French flax, backpacks made from recycled water bottles, and more. The list grows.

We're members of TextileExchange, a global non-profit working to transform the industry by developing standards for transparency and certification.

You know why sustainability matters.
We'll continue to show you how we’re getting there.

But enough about us. What's new with you?
