Bespoke curtain maker celebrates anniversary milestone

Independent bespoke curtain manufacturer Curtainwise is celebrating an historic company milestone.

The business, which is based in Cumnock, Scotland, has reached its 35 year anniversary and was first founded by Mary McKenzie back in 1988.

Initially working from home, Mary, a dress maker to trade, has had a lifelong interest in the world of textiles. Her soft furnishings journey then progressed as her reputation grew, and with the support of her husband, Curtainwise was established.

With the increase in demand for bespoke made to measure curtains, Roman Blinds and Pelmets, the business soon had to relocate to a bigger premises. Expanding year after year Mary’s two sons William and Iain joined the business and are now one of Cumnock’s highest employers, with over 40 staff.

Celebrating the milestone, Curtainwise said: “From its humble beginnings working under Mary’s stairs in Barshare, to our premises now at Glaisnock Glen with over 40 employees. It’s incredible to see how our family-owned and run business has grown over the years.

“As we reach this milestone, we are rebranding with a fresh new logo – take a sneak peek on our cupcakes made by the wonderful Nat Bakes Cake. You will see this appearing across our socials soon.”
