Restoring old buildings means exploring creative solutions to work with what you have. This (roughly) 800 lb. safe was going to be difficult and expensive to haul away. Lucky for us, there was a hole that needed filling that was almost exactly the same width!
The safe (circa 1900) belonged to Mr. Penn and the Montgomery Cotton Co., and will forever live in our wall.
I hope the core values of the textile industry remain and inspire everyone that comes through our doors. We will do our best to provide ethical and sustainable solutions in a world so full of consumerism.
