Celebrating Textile Heritage: How Ravenox and Amazon Embrace the Threads of Tradition

A Legacy Woven with Thread and Tradition

The United States has a rich history in textiles, from the cotton fields of the South to the bustling fabric mills in the North. Amazon's latest office, Hank, located in the heart of NYC, is a prime example of how we can intertwine the past with the present. This former department store, which opened its doors in 1914, now stands as a testament to the lasting significance of textile heritage.

Ravenox: Keeping the Rope-Making Tradition Alive

Much like Amazon's focus on restoring and preserving textile heritage, Ravenox takes immense pride in manufacturing ropes and cords right here in the USA. Our commitment to quality, durability, and sustainability isn't just about business; it's about honoring the thousands of craftsmen and women who laid the groundwork for our industry.

Design, Business, and Unique Spaces

Amazon's newest office space at Hank mirrors a blend of style and function. The different floor themes inspired by textiles, the unique lounges, and the commissioned textile artworks like the thread art textile sculpture spanning nine floors - all hearken back to the building's original purpose. Much like the varied fibers in a textile, these design elements come together to create a stunning, cohesive narrative of history and innovation.

Ravenox’s Commitment to Visual Display and Design

At Ravenox, we understand that ropes and cords are more than functional tools. They're also elements of visual display, finding use in art installations, home decor, and more. Our design philosophy aligns with Amazon's emphasis on visual aesthetics, merging both tradition and innovation.

Textile Heritage: A Foundation for Business

Amazon's partnership with CUNY is a brilliant example of how traditional spaces can be repurposed for contemporary needs. Much like how Ravenox transforms age-old rope-making techniques into products fit for today's demands, Amazon's initiative bridges the past and the present, ensuring the textile heritage is never forgotten.
