About Morgan & Oates

IMPORTANT NOTE: This page is for TRADE information use only.

Since the mid ’70s the name of Morgan & Oates has been synonymous with the highest quality cashmere and fine wool accessories. Backed by the parent company and textile specialist Calzeat Ltd since 2000, Morgan & Oates has become an iconic brand within the global Travel Retail business,

Calzeat is one of Scotland’s premier manufacturers of high quality woven textile products with an emphasis on design, value and customer service.

Based near the picturesque town of Biggar in the Scottish Borders, this family owned business produces a wide variety of fabrics and accessories which are sold throughout the world. As a past winner of the award for Scotland’s most enterprising company, Calzeat has become one of Britain’s most renowned textile manufacturers. Having invested heavily in the most modern weaving machinery and computer aided design systems, the highly skilled staff at Calzeat are able to provide customers with a profoundly innovative and unique range of textile products.

Founded in 1974, Calzeat started by selling wool fabric for men’s neckties. Within 10 years a substantial business in men’s and ladies apparel fabrics and accessories, was established and in the 1980s a home interiors collection was developed. In the year 2000 Calzeat bought over Travel Retail brand Morgan & Oates. Calzeats expansive experience, knowledge and understanding of the textile industry has allowed Morgan & Oates to thrive within its sector.
