Woven in Pennsylvania for Outstanding in the Field. Achieving our dreams.
Creating the perfect linens for Outstanding in the Field, a roving restaurant without walls, gave us the long awaited opportunity to weave our linen in Pennsylvania. Once a thriving industry, the weaving of long line bast fibers like linen is rare in the United States today; the work has been offshored or abandoned completely. Lucky for us, there are still a few remaining looms in our home state of Pennsylvania, and a handful of skilled weavers as committed as we are to rebuilding this link in our regional textile supply chain.
From the fields of flax where it begins to finished woven cloth, linen can be a climate beneficial product. A 100 day crop that fits nicely into rotation on diversified farms, it requires few inputs and little to no irrigation. The finished cloth is 100% plant based so doesn’t slough microplastics into our waterways. Accelerating climate change has reinforced the importance of investing in regional climate beneficial textile production. Kitchen Garden Textiles, in partnership with our sister organization, The Pa. Flax Project, is at the center of this work in our region. From the farm all the way through to finished goods, we are taking measurable steps to revitalize and support our region's textile industry. We are grateful for the opportunity and the voice our collaboration with Outstanding in the Field gives us.
Live beautiuflly. Live plastic free.
It's our vision to build a healthy vibrant future with products you'll use and love everyday.

The wonderful linen storage bags from Kitchen Garden Textiles play an essential role in my refrigerator, keeping my lettuce, celery and other produce fresh and moist. I have at least three in use at any time. How did I ever manage without them?!!

Wearing my KGT apron is empowering, wearing this garment, that represents many of the values I hope also translate on the plate, makes me feel like anything is possible in my kitchen.

I’m a coffee snob ever since working as a barista at a small, local shop many years ago.... So, along comes a product that is made from linen(!), that I feel *GOOD* about using for my daily dose of caffeinated bliss. Working in sustainability, I’m keyed into products that align with my ethics. Thank you for taking away my guilt for all the paper filters I won’t be using from here on out!
