John England sells fabric to the wholesale trade. The company does not normally sell to the public.
John England offers wholesale prices to fashion designers. Also, retailers, apparel manufacturers, interior designers, home furnishing manufacturers, film and theatre companies, etc. John England supplies fabrics for a wide range of end uses.
When you buy from John England you are buying direct from the manufacturer, not simply from a wholesaler.
John England fabrics are woven in their weaving factory in Banbridge, Northern Ireland.
You may buy from stock fabrics with a unique range of on-trend colours. Also, because John England is a manufacturer there is more choice if you need unique custom-made weaves, colours, or designs.
John England has its own laundry so can offer all fabrics with a washed, shrunk and softened finish. This is a service of particular interest to many of our customers. Customers buy most of John England fabrics loom-state, scoured and dyed/whitened and finished.
Order Wholesale Irish Linen
To allow for the lower wholesale prices customers must buy larger amounts. If not in each order; over the period of a year. Few manufacturers survive by offering wholesale prices for retail quantities.
To achieve economies of scale, in manufacturing, orders must be greater than 250 metres (275 yards) in length. Savings we make on orders over 250 metres allow greater price competitiveness. As a result we will pass these savings on to our customers. Orders for a fabric under 250 metres (275 yards) length is a small order. Therefore, if you want the best prices please try to keep orders above 250 metres.
Remember cutting to exact lengths costs extra. Therefore, you will save if you take full rolls, thus avoiding cutting and secondary rolling costs. John England do understand that not all our customers need a full roll; instead want exact lengths of fabric for a specific projects. To help we do have price breaks for quantities under 250 metres in length. Under 250 metres we have various price breaks. The next best prices are lengths 150 m -250 m, 100 m-149 m, 50 m-99 m, 13 m-49 m, 6 m-12 m.
Minimum Orders Size
The minimum order for any colour of stock plain fabrics is 6 metres. The smallest wholesale order value is £200. Therefore, it may take more than one 6 metre length to cover the minimum order value.
For textured or Jacquard woven fabrics the minimum order size is 12 metres. However, this quantity is very much considered a trial amount. Further orders are expected to be larger.
Offering fabrics with on-trend colours in shorter lengths, at realistic prices, is one of John England’s unique services.
Fabric prices are most competitive when customers buy any one item in quantities greater than 250 metres. Fragmented orders do not allow the company to gain the best efficiencies through bulk manufacturing, or raw material purchase.
