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 products.
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 & 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.
