Based in Langholm in the textile heartland of the Scottish Borders, Drove Weavers was founded in the 1970s as a small blanket weaving company. Today, they weave around 150,000 metres of fabric for global brands and fashion houses, seeking the expertise and skill of the local community that decades of craft and material knowledge has resulted in. Langholm was historically a town renowned for its woollen tweeds, housing many mills over the years. As manufacturing moved abroad, the family run mills shut one by one until only Drove Weavers remained. Drove Weavers is owned and run by the people of Langholm with a mission to keep the skill and craft of weaving alive by manufacturing to the highest standard.
