Silk banners for Winchester Cathedral

Silk for churches and more...

Whitchurch Silk Mill has been producing silk for 200 years and its talented weavers still hand weave cloth on Victorian looms. This level of skill and tradition is appreciated by those who require the finest silk for ceremonial and public purposes.


We can create the best quality, glowing silks for vestments, dalmatics, copes and stoles or altar frontals and banners. We weave to your requirements, and can print, embroider and make up the pieces. We are proud to have produced work for Rochester and Winchester Cathedrals, and St George's, Oakdale, Poole.
