Great bedding for back to school at American Made Dorm – Review (And a Giveaway)




 

Well it is that time already, time to get prepared for back to school, time to go out and shop to get the essentials for dorm life. There are just so many places to go, do you go to the local store and pick up what you need there? No. Trust me what you are going to get at your local box store it is not going to be a quality item. They are usually cheap, and fall apart before the school year is up.  Just skip those stores; I have a better suggestion American Made Dorm You are guaranteed to find quality items that are all made in the USA. American Made Dorm is a women-owned small business, here is a little more information about the company from the website:
 
American Made Dorm was founded in 2011, a result of the recognition that there were limited options for high quality, custom-made bedding - Made in America - for college and boarding school students. We created a complete line of comforters, shams, pillows, bed skirts, window valances, laundry bags, rugs, wall calendars, and more.  In addition, we carry all the basics, including sheets, towels, and mattress pads.  

Importantly, it’s all made in America.  The quality of the products is unrivaled by overseas products.  Take a look at the comparison photo below.  On the right are products produced by American Made Dorm - made in the USA.  On the left are the competition's products - made overseas.  The difference is quality, durability, and comfort.  We think it's an easy choice!

 
I was very fortunate to be able to review, the Gray Chevron Bedding Set from American Made Dorm:

Product Description
  • 100% cotton comforter with fiberfill fits both Twin and Twin/XL beds
  • Comforter backing is poly/cotton
  • Comes with matching 100% cotton pillow sham (shown in photo) and a matching laundry bag
  • You can add coordinating accent pillow(s), sold separately (suggestions shown)
  • Machine wash or dry clean
  • Made in the USA
  As soon as the comforter set arrived I could see this was a well-made set.  The comforter is very soft, and the colors are vibrant and really stand out. This is a quality set that will last for years to come.  I love the way the grey work with the yellow. The bedding set starts at $149 for a XL Dorm bed.  I was also very lucky to review a super soft and fluffy pillow. The poppy decorative pillow is available for an additional $21.00.
American Made Dorm has a great selection of items that are all made in the USA. Comforters, pillows, bed skirts, shams rugs, window valances, wall calendars, and a bunch of other essential needed for dorm like including towels and sheets. All are made in America.  

I highly recommend American Made Dorm, for anyone looking for high quality items that are made in the USA, REALLY made in the USA.  I was shocked to hear competitors have a  "made in America line" that is still made in China and Pakistan.  The fabric and shells are made there and shipped here for "finishing", which simply means blowing fill inside and sewing up the top corner. That is outrageous!! When I see made in the USA I want it to be made in the USA! To be tricked like that… it is terrible.

But I am happy to say that at American Made Dorm your items are really made in America, no tricks just the truth. According to the site:
American Made Dorm is located in Louisville, Kentucky. Our mills and suppliers are located in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Kentucky, and Massachusetts. Our warehouse facility is in Kentucky.

No funny business just the truth the items are really American made and I love that.

Here is a picture to compare American Made Dorm items to their competitors items. American Dorm items on the right, the competitors on the left. 



Who would want the flat lifeless items on the left? The right, American Made Dorm items are noticeably better made items. 

The items at American Made Dorm, are not just for dorm life. These well-made comforter sets would be great for your home as well for your bedroom your child’s or a guest room.  Make sure to check out American Made Dorm for your next comforter purchase. You will feel great that you are supporting a company whose items are made in America, and you will know that the items you get are they highest quality items you will love.

The generous folks at American Made Dorm are offering one of Susan’s Disney Family readers a chance to win a choice from 2 patterns:

"Twirl" or "Red Damask".  Both will come with a matching pillow sham and a coordinating decorative pillow (18x18).  The fabric on the comforter is 100% cotton and the fill is fiberfill.  The fabric and the manufacturing is 100% made in America.
