A BIT OF HISTORY
In 1874 Peter Bulman an expat Scot produced tweed, blankets, felted cloth, shirting and flannel in his yet to be named mill on the banks of Distillery Creek in Launceston, Tasmania. The press dubbed it the Waverley Woollen Factory and years later Bulman would name his factory, Waverley Mills.
For nearly 150 years Waverley Mills has been producing Australia’s highest quality wool textiles and made textile manufacturing a dominant industry in Tasmania with Waverley Mills once boasting 80% of the Australian blanket market.
Always quality. Always luxury. Always authentic and respectful to the environment. Always a leader, Waverley Mills continues today that same tradition.
