British Textile Week
UKFT is launching British Textile Week from 9-15 September 2020 to provide a digital showcase of the craftsmanship, creativity and technical skills of the UK textile industry.
UK fabrics are highly sought after by the world’s most prestigious designers, tailors and fashion brands as the starting point for their collections, while our homegrown flair for printed, woven, knitted and embroidered textile design blends creativity with commerciality.
During the week, we’ll tell the stories of some of the British textile companies that would normally be at international apparel fabric trade shows during the month of September, as well as putting the spotlight on some of the pioneers and leaders in our field.
Each day will have a theme, and the week will feature a series of online articles, images, interviews, case studies, videos, seasonal trends and more.
UKFT is co-ordinating the project, with the generous support of The Clothworkers’ Company and the Campaign for Wool.
Sign up to the UKFT newsletter here for more and follow #britishtextileweek to get involved.
