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.
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.
John England do understand that not all our customers require a full roll. However, the best way to get John England linens at the best prices is to buy any one item in quantities greater than 250 metres.
The parent company is Franklin’s International Ltd.
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.
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.
Real flax Linen is a yarn or fabric made from the fibre of the cultivated flax plant, named Linum usitatissimum.
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.
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.
John England receive a very large number of requests; mainly from students on fashion courses. They can only sponsor students in exceptional circumstances.
