History

The Edinburgh Woollen Mill was founded in 1946 by Drew Stevenson as the Langholm Dyeing and Finishing Company, dyeing wool yarn to order. Drew’s eldest Son David, until recently, the chairman of the EWM Group, opened the first retail store in Randolph Place, Edinburgh in 1970. In 1972 the first England store was opened in Carlisle. Having been owned by several equity holdings over the previous decade the company was bought out by the newly formed EWM Group and was then subject to a secondary, management takeover in 2002, led by the now chief executive, Phillip Day.
