Founded in 1903 in Sudbury, Gainsborough is amongst Britain’s last remaining craft weaving houses and the only one still dyeing its own yarns. The go-to name in historic restoration projects, it also produces bespoke fabrics for many contemporary names in interiors and fashion, from Russell Sage Studios to Paul Smith and Giles Deacon. 

With a fabric archive second only to the V&A’s, and its own design studio, Gainsborough plays a unique role in preserving both Britain’s textile heritage and its future.
