Edco Brand products have been produced by the Edmondson family for nearly 70 years since Rennie Edmondson and his sons, Edgar and Harry, established a cotton weaving operation in the Sydney suburb of Marrickville in 1941.
Initially providing much needed war time supplies of bandages, blankets and parachute harnesses to the Australian armed forces. This operation quickly expanded encompassing all types of cotton cleaning products including dish cloths, dorset cloths and mops.
Throughout the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s Edmondson cotton products were so highly recognised not only were they the choice of NSW Department of Health for the entire state’s blanket supply, R.M. Williams appointed the Edmondson Brothers to produce the fabric for the iconic R.M. Williams Moleskin range of trousers.
