Aug '16
UK fashion retailer Marks & Spencer (M&S) is among the first of UK based businesses to sign up to buy yarn from English Fine Cottons, the first cotton mill to be set up in UK in more than 30 years.

Through this initiative, the department store chain has shown its support for 'Made in Britain' label one more time, by buying UK-made cotton yarn.

Located in Greater Manchester, English Fine Cottons plans to be operational in the last quarter of 2016, at an investment of €5.8 million by restoring Tower Mill, a closed cotton mill.

English Fine Cottons has set upon the objective to become a true 'Made in Britain' business by producing the finest quality of cotton yarns across the globe and will employ around 120 people.

The Manchester region of UK was considered the textile hub of the world in the 19th and 20th century, however competition from Asian countries led to last of those mills closing in the 1980s. (AR)
