M&S is flying the flag for British manufacturers by forging partnerships with home-grown suppliers wherever we can â€“ from family-run Yorkshire factories to quirky ex-train engine workshops in Cornwall. We currently manufacture more than 20% of our home products in Great Britain, rising to 99% of all upholstery, and we’re working hard to do more and more to tap into the great manufacturing resources we have on our doorstep.
1. Founded in 1837, family-owned Abraham Moon and Sons uses its well-honed skills to create beautiful textiles of luxurious quality â€“ all from the comfort of its Yorkshire mill in a leafy Leeds suburb. We love the Whitley Love Seat, Â£699, which is available in a vast range of British-made fabrics.
2. Would you believe that a disused train workshop could produce such beautiful hand-made bedsteads. Our Cornish supplier uses traditional forging techniques to create the stunning Penzance bedstead â€“ from Â£1,199.
3. Youâ€™ll be tempted to hit the snooze button when you wake up wrapped in a super-soft and cosy Autograph duvet, from Â£119.00. It’s made in the North of England, in a factory with over 100 yearsâ€™ experience making duvets and pillows.
4. It’s not just the economy and manufacturing industry we’ve got in mind, it’s the environment too. Produced in our first eco homeware factory in the UK, we think the Elba Corner Chaise Sofa is a must-have, especially with three striking new fabric options this season.
5. Another of our long-term suppliers has been manufacturing beds for over a century. Their mattresses combine traditional skills with some of the world’s finest materials, just take this Refresh Memory Mattress as a prime example.
