Discover Textilers in Cumbria

Made in Cumbria brings you the finest woven textile products in the region. Handmade textiles have been a thriving cottage industry in Cumbria for thousands of years, making use of wool from native breeds, such as Herdwick sheep, and other natural materials. What is great about Herdwick wool is that it is historically sustainable and can be used to create a number of high-quality fabrics whilst supporting the county’s local farming heritage. It is a versatile material and can be transformed into luxurious fabrics and materials such as blankets and tweeds and is also perfect for upholstering furniture. The age-old skills of weaving and dyeing fabrics are still found in the workshops of artisan designers in Cumbria today. Many Cumbrian textile makers take inspiration from the seasonal colours and shades of the distinctive rugged Lake District landscape and recreate this in their woven textiles, taking pride in showcasing the county’s unique heritage.
