An Australian family company continuously owned and operated since 1880, it’s been a long and interesting voyage for EHBrett. It started when a 10 year old Edwin Henry Brett learned sail making in his home town, St Peter Port, Guernsey. In 1880after working aboard sailing ships around the world, Edwin started his own loft, first in Newcastle and later Balmain where the business grew to employ 70 people. Today on two sites – Sydney and Melbourne – the businesses uses the latest in CAD and fabric technology to create a wide range of textile items.
