A spokesperson for the EWM Group said:
The decision to move to Carlisle was not taken lightly or quickly, but EWM Group is expanding and our current premises in Langholm are not capable of supporting a modern, fast-growing, national retail development.
Langholm has played a critical role in our company's history and heritage, and we will be retaining our headquarters building there.
We have ambitions to turn the building into a heritage centre which celebrates the role that both Edinburgh Woollen Mill and textiles has played, and continues to play, in Scotland."
The date of the move will be on or around 30 July 2018.

The Moorland May music festival is set to take place in Langholm over the bank holiday weekend, 27-28 May.
Over 13 bands will be performing across all hotels in the town over the two days.
Organisers are hoping to take advantage of tourists lured to the area for the Spring Fling.
Well tourism's kind of integral to the town you know, a lot of the local businesses are closing down. It's a bit of a tough time at the minute so the more folk we can attract through the town to come and maybe stay the night or have a meal, things like that then the better it is for everyone.
People kind of drive straight through Langholm there's not a great many places they can stop so if we can make the most of it while the folk are here you know and try and do as much as we can for the local businesses then we're more than happy to do that.
