About Traditions by Pamela Kline: Traditions by Pamela Kline was founded thirty four years ago by designer, Pamela Kline, when she commissioned the Amish to make quilts from their homespun scraps for the Museum of American Folk Art. The success of this project, which was based on respect for simple materials and beautiful designs, led Pam to manufacture “traditional American homespun fabric” for children’s clothing and home accessories. Custom- made bedding and fine linens, domestically produced in upstate NY, followed. Today, Traditions by Pamela Kline produces a wide range of custom home textiles domestically and imports ready- made bedding and linens sold in over 1200 retailers worldwide. “Appreciation for fine materials and classic designs will never go out of style”, said Pam Kline.
Traditions by Pamela Kline’s design studio, factory outlet store and warehouse are located in Claverack, NY. Two additional retail stores may be found in Manchester, VT and in New York City at ABC Carpet & Home.
