Discover Textile Artists in Cumbria

Textile-making has been prevalent in Cumbria as long as the land here has been farmed. Native breeds such as Herdwick sheep have provided the perfect medium for this thriving cottage industry as have many of the other natural materials and resources here. Not only will you find sheep wool fabrics, alpaca and cow hide are used to make bespoke products by farming families looking to diversify and modernise. Whether you’re after clothing or raw fabrics, wool, dog clothing or upholstery fabric, Made in Cumbria has a wide choice of designers working in the textile industry.
