Moon Tweed

Established 1837

What is Moon Tweed?

Abraham Moon has stood for tweed and best quality since 1837. Today, Moon is one of the last Mills in the UK to take all the process steps from the processing of pure virgin wool to dyeing, spinning and weaving, to the final finish completely on its own.

Abraham Moon & Sons likes to decorate himself with new, innovative designs with consistently high quality standards. So even Prince Charles is a confessed Moon Tweed lover. Jackets, waistocats and coats made of Moon Tweed always provide a special wearing experience: a luxurious feel is particularly important there!

The Moon Tweed Story

In August 1877, Abraham Moon lost his life when his horse was panicking and threw Moon against a wall. The local newspaper reported that the horse was surviving the tragic accident.

On 2 July 1909, one day after the devastating defeat of the British against the Australians in the Cricket, Isaak Moon fell ill and died little later. The press claimed that his death was caused by this defeat. The Moon family then sold the tweed mill to their tweed designer and manager, Charles Walsh, who recorded the incredible sum of 33,000.00 pounds at the time and, due to the rapid development of the tweed mill, was able to repay the sum within four years. The Walsh dynasty is now leading the Tweed mill successfully in the fourth generation and it is the last of seven tweed mills in the city of Guiseley.
