Hemp Fabrics & John England

In addition to linen John England wishes to promote hemp fabrics. It’s important we change our habits and use more planet friendly fibres in our clothing and home textiles. Hemp is probably better if not equal to linen in its positive impact.

John England is a brand you can trust?

ohn England is a brand you can trust for quality, service, innovation and design. As designers and weavers our fabrics are all unique. They are woven in our factory in Northern Ireland using top quality yarns.

What is the minimum order?

The minimum order for any one colour of our stock plain fabrics is the very low amount of 6 metres, and our minimum wholesale order value is only £200 for wholesale orders. It usually only takes two 6 metre lengths to cover the minimum order value.

Prices – for customer convenience?

To achieve our best economies of scale in manufacturing we need orders to be over 250 metres (275 yards) in length. Savings we make on orders over 250 metres allow us to be much more efficient. We can pass much of these savings on to our customers to help us be more competitive.

Orders for a fabric under 250 metres (275 yards) length is considered a small order.

Why can I not get immediate delivery?

There is nothing John England would like better than to have zero lead time for stock fabrics. However, there is a waiting time because we have lots of other orders in the pipeline.

Comfort of linen in hot climates

When linen fabrics are in contact with the skin, the nodes along the length of the fibre absorb perspiration. They then swell and release the moisture to the outside air, thus creating a fabric self cooled by evaporation.
