The factory Abraham Moon & Sons in Yorkshire is considered to be a place of origin of Yorkshire tweed. Tweed fabric is produced during more than 175 years in an ancient Victorian building of time-darkened red brick. This is one of the oldest factories of Yorkshire, the biggest county, which is situated on the north of the country. At the present time the factory Abraham Moon & Sons is a leading supplier of tweed for many fashion houses of global renown.
The factory Abraham Moon & Sons in Yorkshire
Owing to its high-quality, Yorkshire tweed survived in the difficult for British weaving industry 1970s, when a lot of regional factories was closed. However, Abraham Moon production did not reduce release of goods and, moreover, could keep its historical building during this period.
Why is Yorkshire tweed special?
Experienced craftsmen control all the production process of Yorkshire tweed carefully. Every day huge bales of first-class wool are dyed in different tints, and then the tints are kneaded. A craftsman takes wool of different colours and creates a unique colour scale. Then, the wool is sent to the next workshop, where the fabric is combed out, threads are spun, and, finally, weaver’s loom is started.
