Linen Fabrics Wholesaler UK
John England sells wholesale Irish linen and linen blends to trade customers. 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 weaver, 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, textures, and designs.
John England has a 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 with this washed finish, but fabrics are also available loom-state, scoured and piece dyed/whitened and finished.
Wholesale Irish Linen Manufacturer in UK
To allow for the lower wholesale Irish linen 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 (ca. 273 yd) 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 to encourage larger orders. Orders for a fabric under 250 metres (ca. 273 yd) length is a small order. Therefore, if you want the best prices please try to keep orders above 250 metres. The very best prices usually start about 1000 metres.
Remember cutting to exact lengths involves extra labour, and therfore costs more. Therefore, you will save if full rolls are bought, thus avoiding cutting, and secondary rolling costs. As well as wasted short pieces.
John England 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. Discounts for bulk orders tend to plateau at about 2000 metres for most fabrics.
