Established in 1981, Westmorland Sheepskins is a family business, started by Howard Heaton, selling genuine sheepskins and leather goods.
The business is an offshoot of a former longstanding family business called Heaton’s of Leeds who specialised in clothing manufacture with an emphasis on sheepskin and fur.
The family have a deep understanding of the trade, the products, supply chains and their customer base.
The Westmorland brand is very well established across flower/agricultural shows and local/Christmas markets nationally and our website and eBay store were launched in 2009.
The most recent development over the last 2 years and a key area moving forward. Our interest is in small to medium concessions and leases in businesses like Garden Centres, Farm Shops, Fire & Stove Shops and Retail Mills.
Sheepskin is a by-product of the meat industry. It is a natural product with a number of medically researched benefits including reducing asthma in babies and improving circulation in Reynaud’s sufferers. Sheepskin is temperature regulating, draws moisture away from the skin, is comforting, practical and stylish. Taking these factors and the families long-term position in the industry make Westmorland Sheepskins a unique and sought after offer for both our customers and yours.
