Ulster Weavers also offer a matching cotton teatowel to finish off your look perfectly.

Ulster Weavers Home Fashions was founded Holywood, Northern Ireland. Creators of fine home textiles, the company can trace its history back the the 19th Century.
Originally weavers, the Ulster Weaving Co was founded in 1880. Ireland was famous for its homespun cloths and Ulster in particular had become famous the world over for its fine weaving. Throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries, the company continued to spin, weave, bleach and finish the high quality linen it had now become known and loved for.
In the 1960’s, Ulster Weavers had branched out into the Home Fashions industry, and have made a great success of this ever since. By 1990, the company was divided into two, Ulster Weavers Home Fashions and Ulster Weavers Apparel, and both still thrive to this day. Ulster Weavers Home Fashions covers all kitchen textiles; tea towels, oven gloves, aprons, gauntlets, bags and gifts, and with 125 years of knowledge in the production of textiles behind them, which is still relied upon to maintain the high standards within the company, Ulster Weavers have a firm grip on their market and a rich understanding of their trade.
Ulster Weavers has held the Royal Warrant as suppliers of kitchen textiles to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II since 1995, a prestigious title which is highly regarded both in the UK and abroad.
