Where’d You Get That Name?

That's a question we get a lot. Here's the answer:

What is "Cotton Duck"?

Cotton duck is a fabric, prized for its rugged durability. It is used for products such as sails, tents, uniforms, and sneakers.

Cotton duck was produced in textile mills along the Jones Falls River, in Baltimore, Maryland, from 1890 to 1950.

Why Do You Use That Name?

We are located in Hampden -- a City neighborhood in the Jones Falls Mill Valley. Hampden evolved with the mills: the workers lived here, shopped here, raised families, and built a community here. "Cotton duck" reminds us of their legacy; the name is a tribute to that time, and those people. 

It also is a useful metaphor for buying a home: you are "weaving" yourself into your place, and the fabric of the community. You intend to break-in slowly, weather gracefully, and last; you are seeking permanency, durability, and style. 

Finally

We feel the roots, the continuity, the camaraderie of Hampden. We try to bring the soul and pride of the Hampden mill workers to everything we do. 

Settle with Cotton Duck Title Company, and then tour The Avenue (W. 36th Street) -- see if you feel it too.

Remember

Where you do your closing is your choice. Your Realtor or Lender may have recommendations, but you decide. We suggest you skip the cramped, boring, unprofessional spaces offered by others. 

And did we mention complimentary ice cream from our neighbors at the CHARMERY?  Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
