Their 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 they do today.
They are very proud of their history. They 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. Their 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 their 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.
Their 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 they 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 they do.
They have been involved in the designing and manufacturing processes therefore for a very long time. Quite simply, they really know how to make product and how to make it better than everyone else.
Because of their history and experience, they understand the processes and what is required to ensure they provide you with top quality product, at the best price. They have been doing this for many years and they continue to focus on every detail and on the newest technology to bring the very best products to you.
Some of their suppliers have even become good friends, they have known them for a long time - they trust them, and they know you can too!
They do say no to some people because they have a reputation to protect. They only work with the very best brands and the very best suppliers.
They 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 their own control, to ensure you that their high quality standards continue to be met.
Trust and Authenticity…
Very Importantly - They Only sell their Own product . They do Not sell designs by anyone else! Everything you see is actually designed and sourced directly by us, working very closely with their global partners.
