High Street Retail

We have a long history of weaving fabric for the world's leading retailers and department stores. The consistency of our mix and match range is unmatched. Our quality has helped us build strong relationships that last season after season.

Our fabric is used for core lines by some of the biggest brands in the UK and across the world. We work closely with our customers to achieve exactly what they are looking for.

Alongside this we are often asked to sample for seasonal lines. We can achieve a fast turnaround on samples and most importantly ensure the bulk fabric matches what has been approved. We are committed and skilled in supplying fabric on time and up to standard.

Luxury Fashion

We weave luxury fabrics of exceptional quality woven using only the finest merino wool and noble fibres. Excellent service and the ability to develop bespoke fabrics have made us the go to manufacturer for luxury fashion brands.

Today the importance of sustainable fashion cannot be overlooked. We are an advocate of the slow fashion movement and like to think we produce fabrics of integrity which become prized garments that will be worn for many years.

Corporate & Uniform

The corporate market has been a cornerstone of our business since the beginning when we made fabrics for the military, police and fire services.

A lot has changed since then. Today we combine the latest in weaving technology with our expert knowledge of the corporate wear market, creating fine English worsted fabrics at a very competitive price.

Our Corporate Wear selection is made up of our most competitive and best performing fabrics; fabrics which are tried and tested; robust fabrics refined over the years.

We have a good reputation for elegant corporate wear delivered on time and up to specification. But don’t just take our word for it, satisfied customers include: The Great Britain Olympic Squad; The English and Irish Lions; England's World Cup football team (and yes that waistcoat); and many building societies and banks around the world.
