Vidalia Specialty Mills, a subsidiary of Louisiana, US-based Vidalia Mills which makes textiles exclusively using e3 cotton, has acquired all forty-six Draper x3 selvedge looms from JW Demolition, LLC, of Greensboro, NC, owner of the former structure and contents of the famous Cone Mills White Oak Plant. Financial terms of the purchase were not disclosed.

Under the terms of the agreement, Vidalia Mills arranged shipment of the former White Oak selvedge looms to its Louisiana facilities. A demonstration of the first of these selvedge looms was conducted at Vidalia Mills as part of the preview for more than thirty North American clothing brands and retailers.

“The purchase of the most iconic selvedge denim production in the world is not only humbling to us but furthers our mission to reinvent the greatest tradition of denim, the quintessential American-made fabric,” said Vidalia Mills CEO Dan Feibus.

“Our goal at Vidalia is to make high-quality, sustainably-produced yarns and fabrics exclusively using e3 sustainable cotton to meet the needs of brands and retailers in North America and around the world. Vidalia is a resource for brands, retailers, and consumers who appreciate small-batch premium selvedge denim produced in a sustainable, transparent environment,” he added.

"We are delighted to have sold this equipment to Vidalia, as their management team has a proven track record in the industry and a 30-year history with these looms. We are proud that Vidalia will continue to build upon the more-than-100-year legacy of White Oak selvedge denim production in the United States,” said Will Dellinger, Owner of JW Demolitions.
