About Cannon

The Cannon Mills brand of bed and bath linens was founded in 1887 with a revolutionary way to make towels. Cannon towels used inexpensive cotton, developing what would later be called terrycloth, rather than more expensive and less absorbent linen. James Cannon's North Carolina site was more than a manufacturing facility; he built homes for his employees, as well as stores, churches and other services, and in 1917, James arranged life insurance policies for all of his employees, making the Cannon Manufacturing Company this first American business to provide such benefits. When James passed away in 1921, his son Charles had already been established as the company president, and by 1928, Charles had organized nine different textile companies into one parent corporation. It is startling to consider that, at a production rate of 300,000 towels per day, despite the company's almost exclusive focus on towels; they soon became the world's largest textile producer.

However, Cannon sheet sets and other Cannon Bedding were distributed worldwide by the 1970s, demonstrating that other textile developments had quietly continued alongside the towels' success. Today, Cannon comforters and quilts, towels and throw blankets, and other linens are just a part of a full range of home decor. From wastebaskets to curtain rods, and window blinds to outdoor furniture accessories, as well as down-alternative fiber beds, Cannon Lighting & Accessories and area rugs, the business expands through the support of Sears, its modern parent company, Sears, while textile innovation remains the foundation of Cannon's success.
