For a family mill, established via gold sovereigns saved in a silver pint mug over a fireplace, we are lucky, not to mention extremely proud of our heritage and to have touched and influenced so many moments in history.

Over our 230 years, our stories and skills have been passed down through generations of, not only the Hainsworth family, but the families of our mill workers too. They have also been witnessed by billions of people across the world  through the fabrics they encounter in their day-to-day existence.

Our Mill’s most visible product is one of our most historic, the Scarlet uniform cloth still worn by the Royal Guard, was supplied by us to the troops all the way back in 1815 for The Battle of Waterloo.
