The company is owned by a charity, GlobalYell Ltd, which has educational and training aims. It was established in 2015 to weave cloths for the charity’s residence programme which are available on this site and to offer production services to weavers. Any profit is gifted back to GlobalYell Ltd to further the charitable aims of the organisation.

Currently there are two members of staff, Andy Ross and Kirsty Brabin. Both are passionate about woven textiles with experience in the textile industry both in Shetland and further afield.

The business premises are shared by The Shetland Tweed Company, a weave design business with whom the production company works to create bespoke cloths for clients.
