Founded in 1837 and with our roots in apparel, we are one of the last remaining vertical woolen mills in Great Britain, with a reputation for consistent quality and innovative design. Here you can discover more about the Abraham Moon mill, our illustrious company history, and the many natural benefits of wool fabrics. Abraham Moon founded the company in Guiseley, West Yorkshire, in the very same year Queen Victoria ascended to the British throne. Since then wool as a material has experienced varied competition from man-made fabric, Moon focused on quality and concentrated on the luxury market, taking advantage of the manufacturing control and consistency that only a vertical mill can offer. Our customer list includes major international brands such as Burberry, Paul Smith and Ralph Lauren. In 2009, Bronte Tweeds was purchased by Abraham Moon & Sons. Already a well-known producer of throws and tartans, the combination of Bronte’s extensive market knowledge and our dedicated in-house design team and manufacturing versatility has seen our accessories division grow exponentially in the years since. Bronte Tweeds was rebranded as Bronte by Moon in 2013.
