Wyedean Weaving Co Ltd is the latest UK textile firm to become a partner of Future Fashion Factory, a £5.4-million research and development partnership developing new digital and advanced textile technologies to boost the design of high-value creative products. It supplies uniform, accoutrements and braid to the defence ministry and the armed forces.

“We are delighted to be involved with Future Fashion Factory and glad to see so many other Yorkshire textile mills already involved,” says Rosie Wright, business development manager at West Yorkshire-based Wyedean, which became the partnership’s 100th member.

Future Fashion Factory started in October 2018 with just 10 core partners and three academic centres: the University of Leeds, University of Huddersfield, and Royal College of Art. Leeds City Council and Burberry were among the core partners.

Since then, businesses from young independent designers to major retailers have been keen to get involved, as well as technology and data companies supporting the fashion and textile industry.

Among the recent additions to the Future Fashion Factory community are technology giant IBM, young design brand Cunnington & Sanderson, and Community Clothing, the social enterprise founded by Great British Sewing Bee judge Patrick Grant. (DS)
