Two of the Irish Linen Guild members have recently come under common ownership, and will be working much closer together in the future.
Thomas Ferguson is a weaver of plain and Jacquard Irish linen fabrics, mainly for luxury table, bed and kitchen linens. John England is a designer and wholesaler of apparel and interior fabrics, and carries a large range of unique off the shelf linens.
John England will be moving from their current Belfast premises to join Thomas Ferguson in their weaving factory in Banbridge, Co. Down.
In a statement from the company they say that by working together they will will be stronger than the sum of the parts, and greatly expand the customer base for both companies.
