At Bristol Weaving Mill we work on hand-looms to develop new textile designs and products, that are then manufactured either by hand or on our in-house industrial weaving loom. We source our yarns from the UK where possible, and we work very closely with yarn manufacturers to promote British yarns.
We also work with small-batch fiber producers to develop their fiber into yarn and then finished products. Our products and cloth is always 100% manufactured in the UK, with the majority of processes occurring in-house. Fibers we work with include Wool, Alpaca, Cashmere and Mohair.
We are starting the conversation about how the South West can produce more home-grown textiles and garments in a more healthy, resilient and regenerative textile ecosystem.
