We believe in the power of art, fashion and design to make people's lives richer. Our fabrics are for feeling good and enjoying life.

Fabrics as art

Since our inception in 1928, Edinburgh Weavers has put concept and artistry first. Our most renowned director was Alastair Morton, the third generation in the Morton textiles dynasty.

Inspired and tutored by his father and grandfather before him, Alastair took the reins in 1931 and boldly set out to fuse textiles and modern art. He commissioned illustrious British designers to create work for the company, such as Barbara Hepworth, Terence Conran and Paul Nash.

 

90 years later, we are still using artists instead of fabric designers. We encourage them to develop pieces that are uninhibited by the technical constraints of textiles manufacturing.

We then use our experience and craftsmanship to turn these designs into magnificent printed or woven material. The results are truly unique fabrics - richer and more intricate. They make inspiring backdrops for contemporary living.
