UKFT’s British Textile Week

UKFT launched British Textile Week from 9-15 September 2020 to provide a digital showcase of the craftsmanship, creativity and technical skills of the UK textile industry.

UK fabrics are highly sought after by the world’s most prestigious designers, tailors and fashion brands as the starting point for their collections, while our homegrown flair for printed, woven, knitted and embroidered textile design blends creativity with commerciality.

During the week, we told the stories of some of the British textile companies that would normally be at international apparel fabric trade shows during the month of September, as well as putting the spotlight on some of the pioneers and leaders in our field.

The week featured a series of online articles, images, interviews, case studies, videos, seasonal trends and more, with a focus on one area of the industry each day:
