The Ulster Weaving Company was originally founded in 1880. Throughout the late 19th and early 20th century, the Company continued to spin, weave, bleach and finish the high quality linen for which Ireland and Ulster had become famous the world over. Over the years they brought their years of textile expertise to the kitchen sector – at first Irish Linen Tea Towels and over the years expanding the range to include all types of kitchen co-ordinates, bags and giftware.
To meet the demands of a 21st century market, production takes place in various sites throughout the world, but the process and the quality of the end product is still controlled in Northern Ireland. Ulster Weavers has held the royal warrant as suppliers of kitchen textiles to Queen Elizabeth II since 1995. Today, Ulster Weavers is a family business with a worldwide reach.
