History of Company:

Carolina Cotton Works, Inc. (CCW) opened for business in March of 1995. Starting out in a new building and all new equipment, we soon earned a reputation of having one of the finest dyehouses in the United States. With continued success each year since, CCW has reinvested in new equipment and systems to allow us to stand alone as the most efficient dyehouse in the country. Although we continue to offer commission bleaching and dyeing services, the growth of our business has proven to be in the finished fabric package business. Most recently, CCW is pleased to be recognized as a bluesign® system partner.

Experience - Quality - Dependability - Three necessary components of strong customer/vendor relationships have been the key building blocks of Carolina Cotton Works. With the experience of company president Page Ashby, comes knowledge of yarn spinning through cutting. We have built solid relationships with several major yarn spinners and knitters in the United States. We have the resources and technical abilities to become the premier U.S. fabric supplier for apparel producers both domestic and international.

Using the state of the art equipment in our 120,000 square foot building, Carolina Cotton Works can produce up to 450,000 pounds per week of bleaching and piece dyeing.
