Our story so far...
Our Grandfather, Alexander Irwin, started manufacturing linen handkerchiefs way back in 1951, here in Magheralin, Northern Ireland. Alex, quite simply, loved machines, but he also loved people. His business was built by working very closely with the local community; on family values, hard work, strong relationships and with an intense focus on developing new innovative product.
The focus even back then was on making beautiful, top quality, affordable products. Those same values are intrinsic in every single thing we do today.
We are very proud of our history. We also appreciate and respect all those that have helped in the business over those many years. Some of those very same people who worked with Alex Irwin still work in this business today. Our longest serving colleague retired last year after 63 years in the company!
Despite all the changes, the company is still owned and run by the Irwin family, with Gary and Andrew Irwin still very actively involved on a daily basis in the business.
There have been many significant changes over the years, from the early days of manufacturing handkerchiefs in the local community, to the printing and manufacturing bed linen here in our factory in Magheralin, and now to the global sourcing of the products and the recent opening of Flag Ship Retail stores to help showcase the various brands.
Our products are now available throughout the UK and Ireland in leading independents and department stores, and will soon be available even further afield.
There have also been various name changes as we have evolved including to Broomhill and now Bedeck, but the ethos of the company has never altered. The heart and the soul remain the same, with this love for creating great quality products and exciting the customer, remaining at the heart of everything we do.
We have been involved in the designing and manufacturing processes therefore for a very long time. Quite simply, we really know how to make product and how to make it better than everyone else.
Because of our history and experience, we understand the processes and what is required to ensure we provide you with top quality product, at the best price. We have been doing this for many years and we continue to focus on every detail and on the newest technology to bring the very best products to you.
Some of our suppliers have even become good friends, we have known them for a long time - we trust them, and we know you can too!
We do say no to some people because we have a reputation to protect. We only work with the very best brands and the very best suppliers.
We are now recognised as the UK market leader for the creation of premium branded bedlinen and have carefully established what is now the most comprehensive stable of leading brands in the UK; all developed totally under our own control, to ensure you that our high quality standards continue to be met.
Trust and Authenticity…
Very Importantly - We Only sell our Own product . We do Not sell designs by anyone else! Everything you see is actually designed and sourced directly by us, working very closely with our global partners.
We have invested our heart and soul into doing this. You can trust therefore not only the quality of our products, but also our prices. We can 100% guarantee you will not buy any of our products cheaper elsewhere. We expect you to get value for money and even if for some bizarre reason you do find an anomaly, we will refund you the difference! See our Price Promise for all the details.
Our company regularly wins trade awards in its sector reflecting not only the quality and the prices of the products we supply, but also the service we provide to all of our customers.
