A. W. Hainsworth & Sons Ltd.

Home & Gardens

Hainsworth is one of Britain's most prestigious textile mills serving markets in the UK and around the world.

A seventh generation family business, founded in 1783, Hainsworth has proven expertise in manufacturing woollen products to exacting specifications and creating innovative design-led woollen fabrics.

At the heart of its business are three key messages: Performance, Protection and Design.

The Yorkshire-based company is probably best known for manufacturing the famous Hainsworth Guard Scarlet cloth which is worn by the Queen's Guards outside Buckingham Palace. Hainsworth has been supplying cloth to the UK Armed Forces since the Duke of Wellington faced Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815.

The company also has the Royal Warrant for supplying the Queen with interior fabrics for Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle.

Another major part of Hainsworth's business is pushing the boundaries in the manufacture of fabrics used in the personal protective equipment (PPE) worn by firefighters and other emergency service personnel.

Quality design is central to the company's success and last year we launched our own consumer lifestyle brand, Scarlet & Argent. Our range of luxury blankets, throws and other items for the home can be seen in stores such as John Lewis and Liberty.

We are also active in the fashion industry supplying designers with quality fabric. To highlight our work in this field, we commissioned the designer Anita Massarella to produce the Hainsworth Coat made with the firm's iconic Bright Scarlet Doeskin.

Hainsworth is proud of its heritage and its long-standing connections with the Royal Family and is hugely honoured to have been chosen to take part in this special festival.
