The primary purpose of McEvoy Textiles is to rethink manufacturing in the UK. In woven textile manufacturing there are a lot of old ideas and an almost universal aversion to progress and risk (the term Luddite actually refers to weavers specifically so this isn't a new phenomenon) I believe that by creating a small manufacturing hub that champions research and development we can show that exciting ways of thinking and making have a place in the industry and are the future of it. Further to this I feel micro manufacturing has scope to grow and create the jobs communities need.
