Our family has historic connections, weaving the look of Iconic England since 1783, and our fabric has influenced, and been part of, numerous moments in history.
Our fabrics adorn palaces and buildings of great importance, covering the wool sack in the House of Lords and creating the striking scarlet uniforms still worn by the Queen’s Royal Guards. We are also proud to hold the Royal Warrant for supplying furnishing fabrics to Her Majesty the Queen. Hainsworth cloth is the visual representation of England throughout the world and every piece of cloth that we produce is a little piece of history, made in our mill in the heart of Yorkshire.
