The Original range

Our background

The history of Halley Stevensons

We have been manufacturing specialist waterproofed textiles since 1864. Our factory — named Baltic Works — has been a feature in Dundee for generations, originally beginning life as a jute mill and later evolving to specialise in dyeing and finishing. The building itself is an important part of our history and has allowed us to create our unique product offering.

Halley Stevensons (formerly Francis Stevensons) have pioneered the development of waxed cotton for over 150 years, with our first patent being awarded in 1910, for ‘cleaning and water-proofing textiles’.

Our history in creating and perfecting water-proof textiles has allowed us to develop many unique products over the years. These are, to this day, entirely produced, dyed and finished within the Baltic Works facility. Our commitment to reinvest in our business, and indeed Dundee, allows us to offer highly customisable waxed cotton products at superior quality and competitive prices.

Environmental responsibility is at the forefront of our latest developments and products. As innovators in waxed cotton, our cottons are sustainably sourced with long term industry partners and controlling organisations such as OCS (Organic Content Standard) and BCI (Better Cotton Initiative).
