Woven from a lasting legacy


The John Foster story is much more than that of a company world famous for the creation of quality worsted and worsted/mohair apparel fabrics for almost 200 years.


John Foster built an entire community for his highly skilled workforce around the famous Black Dyke Mills in the heart of the West Yorkshire textile industry. He was an innovator, winning awards for his fabrics at the Great Exhibition of 1851.


Today our business continues to innovate and to create fine worsted and mohair fabrics that deliver that British look and are easy and efficient to work with. Taking advantage of new yarns, latest weaving techniques and innovative finishing skills, John Foster fabrics are renowned and recognised for their quality around the World.
