Yorkshire's fine fabrics to go on display

Helping Yorkshire's finest textiles, move from their regretful backdrop to a retail paradise, Leeds branch of Harvey Nichols, will display the region's best quality fabrics in a campaign that will help the industry be back on the map.

Although, Yorkshire's weaving industry has been in decline for a century, but they still produce world's finest fabrics and are eager to display them.

Leading fashion houses in London such as, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Burberry, Paul Smith, Hugo Boss and Savile Row are the ace lot of buyers purchasing from the eleven mills. These products will be used as draperies along the escalators in Harvey Nichols, as curtains in fitting rooms and for other furnishings.

According to Suzy Shepherd, Leeds Fashion Works, who is promoting the industry, “There is a myth, that the Yorkshire area, birth place of the industrial revolution and a centre for production of high profile fabrics, has lost its touch. This move will dispose these myths forever.”

Fabrics used from a local mill, Dormeuil, to create worlds most expensive suit, woven in Keighley and launched last year by Alexander Amosu for £70,000; fabrics that decorate the Oval office in the White House; and a suit, woven in Bradford, and gifted to Tom Benson, owner, New Orleans Saints, after their Super Bowl victory, will be on display.

Inspired after visiting the local textile mills, Brian Handley, General Manager, Harvey Nichols, says, “The Yorkshire belt is a specialised lot and have therefore survived for so long. Not only are workers passionate about what they do, the diversity of their fabric is also outstanding, giving you a range, from fine suiting fabrics to snooker table cloths.”
