Fashionably Enterprising Opportunity


Our region has a strong history in the sector from hand-crafted work like proggy mats and quilts through to internationally known brands like Barbour. At the manufacturing level however the industry has changed enormously over a short period leaving large numbers of skilled people without work.

The demand for quality hand-craft and manufactured goods has never gone away though - in quite the opposite - and Weave is about helping rebuild connections between designers, makers and commissioners so that we can all make the most of opportunities this demand creates.
