Contemporary, leading edge fabric designers. John England (Banbridge) Ltd. have been providing fine Irish Linens and linen blends since the 1960’s.   We have our own in house weaving, design, laundry and fabric experts. You can feel confident when you deal with us.

History of the brand/company

The John England brand dates back over 50 years and is synonymous throughout the world for superbly designed and crafted linens, that are spot on-trend.  Our services are used not only by more established fashioned designers, but also by some of the new up-and-coming designers who will be the big names of the future.

What we do – Unique custom fabrics

John England supplies worldwide mostly linen and linen blend fabrics for fashion, apparel, curtaining, upholstery, printing, handkerchiefs, table linen, bed-linen, theatrical costumes, etc.

The strength of the company is the ability to offer quickly from stock, a very wide range of quality linens to our customers at very competitive prices and reasonable minimum order levels. With a personal service.

We hold a stock of dyed fabrics in our more popular lines, and we have a weaving factory on our premises where we can weave special custom fabrics or unique Jacquard designs up to 3 metres in width. 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. Competitors try to copy us. 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.

The John England wash finish for linens is one of the best on the market; softened in our local soft waters which flow from the granite mountains, and leaves them preshrunk.
