WOVEN FROM A LASTING LEGACY

John Foster cloths have been at the centre of world fashion since they won their first awards at the Great Exhibition of 1851.

Today John Foster continues to weave mohair, cashmere and worsted made from the highest quality merino wool, as well as other noble fibres, into luxury fabric for the finest couturiers, fashion houses, designers, tailors and retailers across the globe.

Renowned for fine fabrics and quality cloth making since 1819, the John Foster name is a pinnacle for premium suit fabric and apparels.

Our worsted mill in Bradford is ideally located in the heart of Yorkshire’s textile industry, capturing centuries of British weaving skills, tradition and heritage.

Innovation, design, technological investment, the highest quality standards and entrepreneurial flair combined with hundreds of years of craftsmanship define our business. These qualities are the essence of the John Foster name and will continue to maintain our benchmark position in the textile manufacturing industry.
