Magee 1866 - a fifth-generation Irish family business with over 150 years’ experience in designing, weaving and tailoring luxurious fabrics in Donegal.
Magee was founded 1866 on handwoven tweed when John Magee first established a small drapers shop in Donegal, Ireland. This hardwearing, course fabric was handwoven across Donegal by part-time fishermen and farmers as the perfect fabric for dissipating the damp and cold weather, so often found in North-west Ireland.
The weaving mill in Donegal Town, on the banks of the River Eske, is still the beating heart of everything at Magee. A tweed from Magee is made to stand the test of time. Their dedication to slow fashion is just one of the ways we hope to protect our future for generations to come.
