Patriarch of the Shevelev family, Moishe Shevelev died prematurely in 1893 from pneumonia, contracted after diving into a lake to save a child. This left his widow, Rebecca Ponas Shevloff (born 1853 died 1935), with the tough decision in 1895 to leave Russia with her four children, Emanuel, Ben, Samuel and daughter Cecily, and settle in Sheffield to seek a new way to provide for her family. She settled in Sheffield where the family had relations who manufactured cutlery. Due to an administration error, the family name was wrongly registered as Shevloff upon entry to Britain. That name persisted.
The three young brothers started selling net curtains and voiles and soon became general drapers selling blankets, sheets, towels, curtain fabrics and clothing. In 1905, the brothers decided to move to Manchester, the home of cotton, to start a wholesale distribution business based on Manchester’s High Street. Here they established a flourishing wholesale drapery and converters of grey cloth (greige), soon becoming a Manchester household name, and in 1925 built what they proudly named “The White House” covering six floors packed to the brim with drapery spread over 25,000 square feet.
When Cecily married, she moved to Newcastle and opened the first branch warehouse of E B & S Shevloff supplying the East Coast & mining towns. This was rapidly followed by a second branch warehouse in South Wales.
Ben Shevloff’s five sons joined the business in 1929 as did Emanuel Shevloff’s son, Maurice who ran his father’s furnishings, fabrics and lace department. The Shevloff family extended onto Cannon Street in Manchester where they distributed carpets, oilcloth and later linoleum.
In 1975 Ben Shevloff’s granddaughter Gail and grandson Philip joined E B & S Shevloff Limited and developed a fresh arm of the business, manufacturing revolutionary new bedding quilt covers, distributing licensed character merchandise of famous names as such as Star Wars, The A-Team, Transformers, Rainbow Brite, NFL, Premier Football Clubs and in 1987 signed a licence with Walt Disney to produce Mickey & Minnie Mouse and Winnie the Pooh, all under the brand name “Character Collection.”

Frequently Asked Questions
- PPE are designed to create a non-disease specific barrier to penetration of substances, solid, liquid, or airborne particles. In general, neither FDA nor the manufacturer can provide assurances that PPE will protect you against a specific disease. The data that FDA uses for the evaluation and clearance of PPE rarely includes performance evaluation or testing against specific viruses, such as Ebola or flu. If performance data has met FDA requirements and demonstrate protection against a specific disease, the product labeling will state the claim for protection against a specific virus or bacteria.When there is an outbreak that affects the broad population, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is responsible for making specific recommendations for infection control measures in different circumstances and settings.
In general, most PPE is designed to be used only one time and by one person prior to disposal. There are a few exceptions, for example, some types of elastomeric respirator masks and protective eyewear such as goggles may be reused if the user follows decontamination methods in the product labelling.
We offer a full range of washable and re-usable Cotton & Polyester Masks which can be supplied with Disposable FFP3-11R pleated Liners providing 98.9 Filtration Or supplied with FFP-1 Civil Liner which provide at least 80% filtration. If you would like information regarding this please contact us .
If PPE is exposed to infectious materials during use (e.g., body fluids from an infected person) the PPE is considered contaminated and the wearer should remove it promptly, using proper removal and disposal procedures. Please be aware that even if a PPE successfully protects you while it is being worn, improper removal and disposal of contaminated PPEs can expose the wearer and other people to infectious agents.
PPE is designed to be used with other infection control practices such as hand-washing, using alcohol-based hand sanitizers and covering coughs and sneezes to minimize the spread of infection from one person to another.
Wearers of PPE can determine what protective level a PPE is rated for by the standards to which it has been tested.
CDC’s National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) maintains a database called NIOSH Personal Protective Equipment Information (PPE-Info) that includes most of the current PPE standards in more detail.
