Celebrating the American Ideal in Honor of the Fourth of July

In her book, Uncommon Thread, Peacock Alley Founder Mary Ella Gabler writes, “Throughout life’s twists and turns, I’ve held close the blessings of family and friends, good food and health, fulfilling work, and life’s unexpected moments of joy. But the common thread between them – what makes me feel happy, secure, warm and home, no matter where I am in this world – is something simple as this: beautiful textiles sewn with love and care. Pure, luxurious, homespun comfort.”

For more than 40 years, Peacock Alley has been run with this ideal in mind.

Based in Dallas, Texas, Peacock Alley has a long tradition of making the bedroom a place that speaks comfort, peace and happiness with luxury bedding products.

Born of a simple love of quilts, Mary Ella Gabler’s Peacock Alley was fully realized and grown while raising a family. Today, her children are at the helm, leading their extended family of devoted and hard-working employees. The mantra “hire people who love what they do and success will follow” is a deeply-held belief at Peacock Alley.

On this Fourth of July, Peacock Alley will celebrate the American ideals that are so closely aligned with the Peacock Alley story: hard work, tenacity, perseverance, commitment to quality, honesty, love of friends and family. These are the values on which America was born.

As Mary Ella herself says, “To that I raise a toast, may we continue to convey what’s at the heart of our brand: classic, enduring style of the highest quality and the best value. And may good health and loving family and friends be what we cherish the most.” Cheers to that.
