Easily accessible from Belfast or on the way North from Dublin. You will cross the worlds first flyover I kid you not. This is a true factory shop stocking end of lines, overstock, one offs, samples etc etc. If it’s made of linen they will...More
I was interested in purchasing the two cord pattern linen pillow cases and could not find a photo of them on the website so I emailed asking where to see one. It seems that there was no such photo on the website so I was...More
We visited this factory on a recent trip overseas to Northern Ireland. Nigel gave us a tour of the factory and an informarative talk on the history of Damask linen in Banbridge. This is the highest quality linen in the world and incredibly beautiful. The...More
It is a painful drive out to Banbridge from Belfast but this is the place to go if you are after quality linen products.
It is a working linen factory and, if you time it right, you can go on a conducted tour.

Forget the horrible tat at those tourist shops and buy true linen and support an industry that was once part of the...More

Hi. Our tour was just about at closing time and the production floor was empty. As we had contacted them months before about visiting, and my wife is a weaver, Judith spent about an hour with us, talking fibers and equipment and techniques. She was very generous with her time. So, plan for about an hour, plus a bit for shopping.
