In 2019, the Made Up Textiles Association (MUTA) is excited to celebrate its 100-year anniversary. The association and its members are proud to have reached this significant milestone and are pleased to have supported the temporary structure and events industry over the decades.
In 1919, the Canvas Goods and Made Up Textiles Association was established just after the end of World War I. The eight founding members all traded in textiles, either as importers or as manufacturers.
They were involved in everything from the recycling and manufacturing of jute bags to making tarpaulins, loin cloths and waterproof goods for London’s horsedrawn carriages. Tent and marquee hire featured too, including frame and pole tents. Many tents were used in World War II for shelter purposes, so new stocks had to be manufactured after the war to get agricultural shows back up and running.
It wasn’t until 1974 that MUTA changed its name to the Made Up Textiles Association. MUTA was formed to help keep the industry together and to lead with one voice to Government departments and standard bodies. Today, the association represents a thriving group of hirers and suppliers that collectively help achieve its mission of raising standards in the industry.
As part of MUTA’s centenary, a hall of fame will be introduced to acknowledge those that have played a pivotal part in MUTA’s development. Those inducted to the hall of fame will be added to a dedicated page on the MUTA website highlighting their contribution. The nominees will be announced soon.
