British Textile Week 21
For 2021, UKFT has captured some of the most interesting and dynamic manufacturers, brands and designers throughout the UK textile industry. From luxury worsted fabrics to bold tweeds and the finest cashmere, to original prints and eyecatching embroidery, next-generation technical textiles and a wide range of yarns, British textiles have it all.
The sector has an international reputation for quality, genuine craftsmanship and an authentic backstory, but in a year where local sourcing and transparent supply chains have become even more important, UKFT would encourage domestic fashion designers and interior brands to look again at what UK textiles have to offer.
UKFT co-ordinated the project, with the generous support of The Clothworkers’ Company and the Campaign for Wool.
