Yorkshire textile mill Hainsworth will be showcasing its fabrics in the Tour de France’s Grand Depart next week.
The company has been invited to take part in the Textile & Fashion Showcase at the Carriageworks in Leeds on July 3.
On display will be a stunning scarlet coat of Hainsworth Doeskin made by Anita Massarella Design Couture. Widely used for military dress and garments, the iconic fabric is made in the Mill from one of their finest blends.
The coat will form part of a catwalk show, while on display will be other Hainsworth products including blankets and throws from their Scarlet & Argent and John Atkinson brands and a chair covered in Hainsworth fabric.
Hainsworth, one of Britain’s oldest textile mills, recently launched a marketing campaign positioning itself as the ‘fabric of a nation’.
Tom Hainsworth, Managing Director of Hainsworth, said, “We are delighted to support the Grand Depart. We are working with an increasing number of dynamic fashion and interior designers around the world, providing them with beautiful, timeless fabrics.” 
The Textiles Showcase and Fashion Show celebrates the diversity and creativity of a very contemporary Yorkshire textile industry.
Combining cutting-edge textile technology and creative design skills, Yorkshire produces the world’s finest suiting cloths, stunning interior textiles, luxurious yarns and a wide range of couture fabrics and textile accessories, which reach markets the world over.
Steeped in heritage yet defined by contemporary trends and technology, today’s textile sector in Yorkshire is a vibrant and essential part of the regional economy.
The UK Fashion and Textile Association has teamed up with the UK Trade & Investment and the Campaign for Wool to host the showcase. 
About Hainsworth
The company employs over 150 people at its mill in Pudsey, Yorkshire, and is the oldest vertical mill remaining in the country. It exports worldwide including North America, Canada, Scandinavia, Russia, India, China, Japan, Australasia and South and North Africa.
