Breda Leahy is in business since a young age and has a real flair for retail and a passion for fabrics. She started her career in Todds in Limerick and very shortly progressed to owning her first business in William Street, Limerick where she sold fabrics and made bespoke curtains. With the drastic downturn in the economy in the late 80’s early 90’s Breda shifted the direction of the company to the international markets, exporting fabrics and finished goods to high end clients in Russia.
In 2001 Breda realised that the business needed to change to meet the customers growing demands in the Irish market. She developed Curtains Direct to an “in your own home service” from the retail outlet. Since then Curtains Direct has continued to grow from strength to strength. During this time the company has developed an extensive commercial and residential market, specialising in flame retardant fabrics and anti-micro bacterial suitable for various projects.
In 2016, Curtains Direct went through a restructuring, with Breda’s son, Liam becoming a director in the company. Curtains Direct have also expanded its offices and warehouse.
