Joshua Ellis is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of luxury cashmere, woollen cloth and accessories and in 2017 we are proud to be celebrating our 250th anniversary.
Our journey began in the mill towns of Yorkshire during Britain’s textile heyday where we carry on the tradition, supplying high quality cloth and accessories to an international market. Artisan skills have been passed down through the generations and our thriving apprenticeship scheme, which covers all aspects of manufacture, design and sales, is bringing new talent into the industry to keep Britain at the forefront of global designer fashion.
Working hard to create modern urban woven textiles is Dashing Tweeds who take the best from the past and make it modern, interesting and relevant to life today.
Within their studio in East London they design and develop seasonal cloth collections using new woven structures on our hand loom. These are then produced by an appropriate British mill and released twice a year.
Joshua Ellis is extremely proud to have won the Textile Business Award at the 2015 UK Fashion and Textile Awards, held at the prestigious Tobacco Dock in London.
Managing Director Jayne Woodthorpe said: "Britain’s fashion and textile industry is thriving and we faced extremely tough competition in our category. This award highlights the fact that a continuing emphasis on innovation and excellence is ensuring that our business continues to be relevant today, exporting Yorkshire cloth around the world. It is a tribute to the skill and dedication of our local workforce, our high quality standards and the mix of traditional and new manufacturing techniques we use to create our pioneering luxury textile products."
