The Next Chapter

IMG_5900 IMG_6892In 2014 S Dawes Weaving undertook the mammoth task of moving its weaving business from Manor Mill in Nelson where it had been operating successfully under successive owners for over a hundred years. The business was given notice to move out of Manor Mill in September 2013, and after viewing many possible new premises, we saw Greenhill Mill in Colne and knew immediately it was an ideal site for S Dawes Weaving to develop and grow.

Unit 3 Greenhill Mill is a modern, light, and spacious building which is much more appropriate for the needs of an innovative textile company.   Working with clients at the forefront of contemporary and classic design in the furnishing, industrial and apparel industries, we needed more space and modern clean facilities to fulfil our creative vision of becoming the very best at what we do.

Future plans for development of the unit include new design/showroom, and a second floor sample studio and office space.
