Fabric Uses – What John England can do for you.

Order Sizes

John England can supply woven linens for a wide range of fabric uses. The majority of fabrics are linen or linen blends (with wool, cotton, nylon, polyester). John England is able to keep minimum orders sizes to 6 metres, for stock items. The minimum custom dye run to 150 metres. We can also supply larger orders up to thousands of metres.

Our minimum weaving order for specialist fabrics is 30 metres. However, on a one-off basis we will  weave down to 12 metres for a sample order.

With customer input John England can weave fabrics which are designed and engineered for specific end uses.

However, please remember John England is a fabric weaver and that any order of a fabric under 250 metres length is considered a small order, so if you want the best prices please try to keep orders above this threshold. Although we do understand customers sometimes only require short lengths of fabric for specific small jobs, it is not a good idea for anyone to try to sell retail sized orders at wholesale prices.
