We can also dye to order, again with very reasonable minimum order levels. We have an in-house laundry and all our fabrics can be supplied preshrunk and softened (washed).
John England has been supplying innovative linens to fashion and interior designers for almost half a century, and now has a thriving theatricals department, offering costume designers unique affordable theatrical fabrics for movie, television, opera and theatre productions.
All our designs woven on Jacquard looms are totally unique trend setting designs, and cannot be bought elsewhere. We do not stand still and constantly produce new creations often inspired by things we see in the world around us, and we find it is often very interesting for customers to hear the story behind each design. Customers often also want their own designs woven, again John England can help with this.
