Here at Yorkshiremillshops we offer a range of products and services online, from bespoke bedlinen to villas in Spain.
Our bed linen is made high up in the Pennine hills, in what was once the heart of the textile industry. Here you will find an old brick mill where the workers once started their day at 6 o'clock in the morning, before the advent of automation and high-speed machines.
Today, nothing much has changed. As you climb the old wooden stairs that leads to the top floor, you walk in the footsteps of workers long gone, to the cutting room where the present day workers still lay the fabric by hand and cut the products using shears instead of electric knives.
The mill survived the industrial revolution, the company, a member of the British Interior Textile Association and guild of master craftsmen, survived the dotcom revolution and now offer bespoke bed linens in a range of Egyptian cotton, luxury combed cotton fabric, super percale and standard polyester/cotton, all waiting to be cut and made into customers requirements, using skills passed down from generation to generation. Everything here is made to measure.
It's a proud boast that if you can sketch it, they can make it.
Our aim is quality and first class service,ever mindful of the words of the English writer,
John Ruskin 1819 -1900

Q. WHAT IF I MAKE A MISTAKE WITH MY MEASUREMENTS?
A. It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that the dimensions of the bed are checked before ordering goods.

Without your confirmation, either by phone or email, we will not start to process your order.

A. If something is very urgent we can "fast track" an order providing it does not delay any other customers. We will always try our best to oblige.
Q. DO YOU SHARE OUR DETAILS WITH OTHERS?
A. No, we do not share your details with anyone. Neither do we send sales/marketing emails. Once your order is complete the next time you will hear from us is when we send you an e-card for Christmas.

I called them and they couldn't have been helpful. The products and service lived up to earlier expectations. The linen arrived on time, with excellent follow up and the product was well made. I would thoroughly recommend this company to others." - Mrs Vaughan - Maidenhead
