Linen Fabrics From John England
Linen fabrics may no longer be used to make mass-market everyday linen garments and household items, like they were up until the early 20th century. The main reason for this being that the Irish linen fabrics are not manufactured in a low wage, low cost country.
They are ethically woven in Ireland. With this pressure on cost over the years Irish linen fabrics have been refined and distilled, and most of the coarser, lower cost, mass-market linens have been dropped. We are left with only the best, refined over generations to create fabrics with a wow factor, and a well-known brand.
John England linen fabrics are woven in Banbridge, N. Ireland on the latest European manufactured looms and Jacquards, using only the best yarns.
Producing Irish Linen Fabrics
The strength and confidence in the Irish linen brand is still clear by the number of fakes and attempts to try to use the Irish linen brand for linen fabrics made in low cost countries.
One only must search on some of the well-known online platforms that connect manufacturers and wholesalers in East Asia to individuals and businesses around the world to get a sense of the extent of this.
It is also attacked by people selling linen fabrics from low cost countries, but who still refer to it recognising it is a benchmark linen fabric.
All linen sold in Ireland is not Irish linen. It must be made in Ireland to be Irish linen.
