You can now buy fabrics from the legendary White Oak mill. The minimum order is 6 yards.

Most of the denim heads knows the White Oak mill from Cone Denim – US, but if not here’s some info about them. The mill was named for the 200 year old White Oak tree that stood nearby and served as a gathering place for people traveling to Greensboro from the surrounding countryside. Construction began in 1902 and the first bobbin of yarn was produced on April 20th, 1905. Still true to its heritage, the White Oak plant in Greensboro, NC, operates today as the denim flagship operation, serving as the center for product development and innovation, and the production of Cone Denim’s authentic premium vintage denims made exclusively in the USA.
