Our History

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.”
