ALT Linen for Homes has ended!
We have made the tough but inevitable decision to terminate ALT Linen's linen offering for Homes. As many of you know, we make our linens in small family-owned mills in India that have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and in particular, the Delta variant. The inability to keep a core employee group coupled with the continually changing restrictions on workplace occupancy has meant that many of these mills have had to shut down for long periods. In addition, we have had a lot of difficulty sourcing and transporting sustainable cotton fibers to these mills. As a result, in the past few months, we've experienced a 3x increase in product and shipping costs; and massive delivery delays due to a severe global shortage of shipping containers and cargo capacity. We have no visibility on when the situation is likely to improve. As a result, we are no longer able to predictably source linens.
