In 1948, Hedley Thomas and his wife Alice started making and distributing traditional Christmas Stockings for the John Martins Magic Cave. John Martins first approached Mr. Thomas as they needed 1500 stockings urgently and their Sydney supplier had let them down.
Mr. Thomas promised to deliver 1500 stockings by 8.30 am the next morning and with the help of family and friends, were able to fill the order on time. This led to Mr. Thomas being awarded the whole contract of 70,000 stockings for the John Martins Magic Cave for the following year, and every subsequent year that the Magic Cave continued and the Devon company was born.
Meanwhile, Devon grew its clothing division servicing sporting and social clubs eventually creating a clothing manufacturing and distribution facility in 1984. This stemmed into a concentration and development of clothing uniforms for schools.
Devon Clothing continues today as a proud South Australian family company now into its third generation.
