Moon’s unique collections of furnishing fabrics are beautiful yet durable in equal measure, found everywhere from traditional British retailers to 5-star hotels. The name Moon is now synonymous with wool interior fabrics; no other brand specialises in wool and brings out its luxury and benefits in quite the same way.

Martin Aveyard, Creative Director at Abraham Moon, says: “In the new paradigm that is taking shape around us some of the old rules simply don’t apply. We need to take an active stance on social issues, satisfy consumer demands for ultra-transparency and sustainability and most importantly, have the courage to self-disrupt our own identity and the sources of our old successes in order to realise these changes and win new generations of customers.

“As a designer it is not enough to just present the final plate to the customer. We must take time to explain to them the philosophy of the menu, where the ingredients were sourced and the different recipes we can create from these ingredients. As in the past our best customers will be those with whom we have great communication, who understand us and how they can adapt our products to suit their own tastes.”

“2020 has been a year of awakening: For the new Winter Season we have put our major emphasis on producing new qualities in lighter weights, cleverly using existing yarns to offer new competitively priced modern fabrics that still maintain the Moon mantra of contemporary, elegant British design. These fabrics bridge the gap between our more traditional Shetland & Lambswool qualities in the core priced areas some markets are demanding. Updated woollen blends with new twist yarns give a more contemporary, luxurious look.”
