The look, drape and feel is massively influenced by the fabric you use, or the structures and yarns you choose. By working with John England to create your own fabric (MOQ 12m) you are designing from the yarn upwards. It’s the best way for you to stamp your identity & unique style on ‘a job’, and stand out from the crowd.

At John England we have a huge range of fabrics with different colours, designs, textures, fibres in hundreds of combinations. You can order these as they are, or you can use them to form your own palette and fuel your creativity.

Then decide on colours, textures and fibres for your design.

Method 1

Create your design in a repeat, then decide on scale. Then, it’s as easy as getting in touch!

Method 2

Give us a ring or drop us an email and have a chat with our technical designers to receive guidance through the design process.

Cook – Linen Tea Towels and Kitchen

Introducing the French Collection and Working Kitchen tea towels.

Bespoke Tea Towels also available.

Linen has been shown to be able to resist bacterial growth, is known to be hypoallergenic, it’s stronger when wet, and it doesn’t produce fluff when drying items (glasses, mirrors, etc…). Combine that with it’s environmental footprint, and you get an amazing option for making teatowels – Probably why they have been the go-to choice for most people for centuries!

  • Working Kitchen teatowels beside scones and scales
  • French hearts linen tea towels
  • Linen tea towel collage of designs with name

Not only can we create custom teatowels, aprons, storage covers, waiter’s cloths, and more, but the same fabric can be utilised in many different ways. You can work with us to create a whole range that utilises one design in multiple different ways – maybe changing the weight/density of the fabric or the colour of the design each time. The options are quite literally, endless.

Relax- 100% Linen and Linen Lamb’s wool blankets and throws

Blankets are by far one of the most fun products to design. Structure influences how the blanket acts – the bark blanket gives you that gentle hygge hug, the herringbone throw sits reliably on your bed or sofa. Fibre effects the thermal properties – linen and wool insulates without overheating too much, while 100% linen is light and airy, perfect for days in the sun. And design? It’s a big, loom width piece of fabric. We’ve woven everything from the traditional afghan and farmhouse blankets, to contemporary designs by university lecturers (and students). We can even create blankets using a photograph, weaving the photo in greyscale into the very fabric of the blanket!

Sleep – Linen Bedding

Fitted and Flat sheets at standard UK/EU and US sizes or bespoke sizes (up to 3m wide).
Duvet covers with punch spoke or corded decoration, plain or with damask designs.
Pillowcases with oxford, housewife, bolster and French variations.

Why choose flax linen bedding? It has actually been proven to improve sleep quality, it is hypoallergenic, and regulates moisture and temperature – which is especially useful in hot climates, but is irresistably comfortable in colder climes. All this, and it gets softer with every wash.
