ORDERS ARE TAKING LONGER TO PROCESS BUT WILL BE FULFILLED

We are currently behind on fulfilling some orders, and your order may not be delivered as quickly as usual, or within our carefully estimated timescales (which have always taken into account how quickly we can deliver either from stock, or when additional stock is required from our suppliers) 

This is due to a number of factors, including the fact that some of our European suppliers are unable to send goods to the UK until they have completed additional paperwork. This is out of our control, but we are working as fast as we can to keep these delays to a minimum. We are also running on lower than usual staff levels due to some being absent with Covid 19.

As a proud private family business, we do not employ call centres to answer our phone lines, and we do not usually operate a direct dispatch or drop ship by our suppliers. If you wish to call us or send us an email, we will do our best to respond as quickly as possible, but we ask you to please be understanding and to bear with us.

Orders from EU member states will be fulfilled with VAT, duties and additional paperwork / charges all taken care of by us, so there will be no extra or surprise charges due.

All orders placed will be fulfilled, many without the above delays and within our usual timescales, but it is important that we make you aware of possible delays.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this very testing time and stay safe.

"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime" old English proverb.

In 1891, forty years after the great famine, the West of Ireland was still considered a wasteland and the area around Foxford Co. Mayo was considered to be the poorest district in the region.

Into this community arrived five Sisters of Charity, led by Sr. Arsenius. She believed the best way to improve the dire social and economic situation was to enable the people to help themselves and to that end hit on the idea of providing a woollen mill. The sheep farmed locally would supply the raw material, the river Moy would provide the power, and the inhabitants of Foxford would make up the labour force, Foxford Mills was established. The company thrived through the 30's, 40's, 50's and 60's but in 1987 the nuns called in the receiver. By a stroke of fate, a group of investors were convinced that Foxford had a heritage and a brand worth preserving and so now, Foxford once again thrives, producing what can only be described as amongst the best worldwide in throws, scarves, blankets, rugs and upholstery fabrics, all woven still at the original mill at Foxford.
