Most of you likely know the name Standard Textile from its serene Standard Textile Home collection, or its sumptuous Mascioni Hotel Collection linens that can only be found at the finest hotels in the world, such as Baccarat Hotel in New York City and Napa Valley’s North Block Hotel. What you may not know is that for nearly 80 years, the family-owned company has also designed and manufactured innovative healthcare products, from hospital sheets to surgical gowns. In response to the nationwide shortage of healthcare products, Standard Textile has been leading an urgent charge to increase its production of PPE to support frontline medical workers, patients and their families, revamping its facilities to make more face masks, face shields, reusable cover gowns, and other much-needed supplies. We could not be more grateful to the team at Standard Textile, for their commitment to manufacturing as much reusable PPE and healthcare products as possible and their dedication to alleviating the immense stress placed upon the healthcare industry.
