The Irish Linen Industry's reputation for quality is based on exacting manufacturing standards, and the experience of its people and the companies, which produce it. The Irish linen industry is proud of its long heritage, but has been quick to embrace new technology giving it the flexibility and speed required to service increasingly demanding world fashion and textile markets.

Today weaving, bleaching/dyeing and finishing, and design are the mainstay of the Irish linen industry. The main fabrics currently being woven are quality plain linens for niche, top end of the market, apparel uses. As well as luxurious linen damasks for the top end of the interior and household markets.

The companies continuing to weave in Ireland cannot compete on price with low cost countries and tend to concentrate on the quality end of the market. Damask weaving is moving towards the weaving of specials and custom pieces, made to the customers' own individual requirements. Through concentrating on the upper end of the market, and through the supply and design of quality Irish made, Irish linen branded, products these companies work to compete with mass produced linens from low cost countries.

Fabric that is woven outside Ireland and brought to Ireland to be bleached/dyed and finished cannot carry the Irish Linen Guild logo, which signifies genuine Irish Linen.

A list of the member company logos can be seen below. For apparel linen inquiries please contact: Baird McNutt, John England, , Emblem Weavers or William Clark. For household Irish linens, such as damask table linen, bed linen, or kitchen linens please contact: Thomas Ferguson or Samuel Lamont.
