The Latest News from Abraham Moon

/ / Company News, Design Stories, Latest Posts

We’re half way through the year, so it’s about time we used this blog space to update you with all the comings, goings, and general happenings in the world of Abraham Moon & Sons.

UKFT Award

First of all, we’re delighted to announce that having been nominated for a UKFT Award, we did indeed come out as the winner of the Edinburgh Woollen Mill Textile Award.

The annual UKFT ceremony was held in East London’s Tobacco Docks on 22nd May, hosted by ITV presenter Susanna Reid. You can see a full list of 2014 winners here.

Having won the Supplier of the Year award at the 2013 gala, we’re delighted to add this latest accolade to the collection, fending off some very strong competition from Litmans of Nottingham and Vanners Silk Weavers.

New Sales Office & Showroom

Following our Warehouse expansion in the summer of 2013 (the largest expansion of a woollen mill in over forty years), we now have a large area of free floor-space where part of our Finishing Department operated before re-locating to the new building.

This space has just been approved as a brand new sales and design office, vastly increasing space for our ever-expanding team and also enabling us to create a purpose built product showroom and separate meeting rooms.

This beautiful old area of the mill will still feature the same wooden floors, brick walls, and some of the leftover industrial fittings as it did when it was a working part of our production line, with conversion work due to be completed in November 2014.

Trade Show Announcements

Our Trade Events page has been updated with all our confirmed exhibitions until February 2015.

The latest additions see us travelling to the JITAC Tokyo show for Apparel, Independent Hotel Show and BITA Showcase for Furnishings, and HOME, Spring Fair and the Scotland Trade Fair for Bronte By Moon accessories.

Further updates will be made as soon as we have confirmed our attendance for 2015 trade events February onward.

We hope you’ve enjoyed the first half of 2014 as much as we have and we’ll  look forward to bringing you our next news update from a brand new desk and surroundings later this year.

(N.B. I realise my changing of office furniture is far from exciting for you, reader; my apologies for a rather anticlimactic ending!)
