'Garrow's Law' costume designed by Andrea Galer using silk and linen taffetas

Historic costumes and period projects

We are proud to say that we have worked with organisations including The National Trust and the Victoria and Albert Museum to match and supply fabrics for historic interiors. Our fabric has been used at Knole, in Kent, Houghton Hall in Norfolk, Dunham Massey in Cheshire and Erdigg in North Wales, and you may have seen our work in BBC productions such as North and South (2003); Pride and Prejudice (2005); Cranford (2007); Tess of the d'Urbervilles (2008) and Garrow's Law (2009).

Historic detail

Working from samples we can assure authenticity of match of:

  • selvedge detail
  • yarn content
  • weave structure
  • pattern
  • colour
  • width

Our products

We produce hand woven silk and silk mix:

  • taffetas
  • twills
  • ottoman
  • organzas
  • herringbones
  • satins
  • satin striped fabrics

Minimum length: 25m Maximum width: 128cm

Because of our care and traditional processes, we're not fast production and delivery of a new pattern could take up to 17 weeks for a 150m order - but the wait is worth it for the superb result.
