Ulster Weavers Ltd
Established in 1880, Ulster Weavers is a world-renowned home textile company whose heritage lies within linen production. Today, we produce a rich catalogue of both traditional and contemporary kitchen textile and homeware collections for the modern home.
Based on our linen heritage, provenance, local craftsmanship, textiles specialism, and the quality of our design and products, we are well positioned to meet our customers’ needs in today’s marketplace.
At Spring Fair 2022, we will unveil our new contemporary kitchen textile and homeware collections that are inspired by the places and culture of Northern Ireland to complement our classic range of products.
Our new brand positioning and product ranges are based on global audience and market research to map the macro trends, lifestyle movements and consumer behaviours relevant to our category.
This knowledge and insight provided the bedrock for our brand rejuvenation and informed our vision to bring inspiration and craftsmanship to every home in the world. In a highly competitive category, we now need to retell our story, connect with a new and burgeoning audience and deliver on our purpose to enrich homes & lives everywhere.
We create treasures that generate the warmth and comfort of home – thoughtfully made products that meet our consumers' needs and enrich their days. We look forward to showcasing them at Spring Fair.
