Tom Oates, Founder of the Manual Woodworker's and Weavers
In 1932, Manual Woodworkers and Weavers (MWW) was established, nestled in the mountains of western North Carolina, in the heart of the once-bustling textile industry. Our privately owned company quickly established itself as a force in the gift and decorative accessories industry.
Tom Oates founded the company in 1932, and by the time Lemuel Oates and his wife Sandra took over Manual Woodworkers in the early 1970s, the company was more successful than ever, and demand continued to grow.

Although Thomas Lemuel Oates started Manual Woodworkers and Weavers in 1932, the story goes back further. The roots of the company can be found in Oates' entrepreneurial spirit. He and his brother used to farm the mountain areas of Bat Cave in western North Carolina. They would also help their mother find materials for her crafts. The sons began to make wooden whistles, buckets and bird-houses. They would sell their wares along with her crafts to the people from Charlotte that came through in their horse-drawn buggies on the way to the mountains. Later, Thomas worked at the Ashville Postcard Company. When the Depression hit, he lost his job, but it inspired him to go into business and sell crafts, like cornhusk dolls and woven pieces, that were produced by the local women. He had learned about the wholesale business while working at Ashville. He built a waterwheel to generate electricity at a mill, began making product and opened shop. Over the years, he expanded the company.
