Learn More About Evangeline Linens
For more than a decade, Ben Ray has traveled the globe working in the textile industry. When the moment came for some professional introspection, his home state of Maine came into focus.
"The Natural beauty of Maine is all too often overlooked. As a native Mainer, I regularly stop and spend a moment in wonder and appreciation of this. Ledges and seaweed, forests of tall pines, the spectacle of the seasons - life in Maine is simple and rugged while the people are straightforward and honest. I am proud that Evangeline is born from this rugged and enduring place. After all the stops along the road, I'm back home and finally able to execute my vision for beautiful, heirloom quality textiles.
In every Evangeline piece I hope that I've captured a bit of the wild, the resilience, and the warmth of Maine with simple materials woven to be used daily."
Ben Ray and his wife Alessandra live in Maine and raise their children Atticus, Harlow and Hazel there.
