Magee began life as a draper in 1866. John Magee, and later his partner Robert Temple, would buy bolts of hand-woven tweed from farmers selling them alongside their livestock at country fairs in Donegal, Ireland.
After the Second World War, the increasing popularity of ready-to-wear necessitated the development from draper and tailor into a company that could also satisfy modern demands. Magee has kept its Irish identity, and Irish colours, quality and designs are as important as ever. Donegal tweed is a practical fabric that keeps out the damp and cold, and today the mill also specialises in other luxurious, natural fabrics.
