We are excited to let you know of a project we are doing with one of our local mills. Taylor and Lodge are producers of finest quality suiting here in Huddersfield, with orders ranging from London designers to around the globe. Did you know that James Bond’s suit in Quantum of Solace was made with Taylor and Lodge fabric?
Although the textile industry is a changing one, Huddersfield remains famous for its quality wool and is now a centre of textiles innovation.
This year, we are partnering with Taylor and Lodge and using some of their beautiful fabrics to create textile artwork for the WOVEN in Kirklees festival. With the pandemic changing everything, we have had to modify plans so here is a little about the beginning of things...

Following a proposal earlier in the year to partner with the mill, a visit was arranged to see the mill and see their fabrics. Photos were taken of the various rooms and working areas and a voiced-over video of them was sent out to the group so everyone could have access to information about the mill.
