William Halstead first blog

Hi There and welcome

Our first blog will be a little introduction into who we are and what we do.

So our Company has been running since the year 1875 ina small town in the North of England called Bradford. We are the world's finest weavers of super mohairs and fine worsteds. Our company name is William Halstead and our website is

We make cloth for mens suitings and we are very good at it. Our customers are worldwide and we have one of the best reputations in the industry for producing the highest qulaity products. These cloths grace the catwalks of Paris, Milan and New York every season for the world's leading fashion houses. We are owned by a textile group named SIL Holdings also based in Bradford which like William Halstead is a family run business.

Some other companies in our group are Chalres Clayton Joshua Ellis Roberts Dyers and Finishers Abbotsford 2010 and finally John Foster

Twice a year we show a collection at the fabric shows Munich Fabric Start in Germany and Ideabiella in Italy where we meet the most prestigous brands in the world and they make selctions of our collection.
We also run stock supported bunches all year round available direct form the mill in British Mohair and British Super 120's. We also have a new bunch which will be available at the end of September called Explorer.

We have excellent loyal customers who come and see us at these shows and without their support we would not be here today. Our biggest market would be South Korea and we are known as the biggest mill in this market.
Other good markets for us are Italy, Japan and increasingly in the USA.

Using technology and social networking websites we can also be found on Twitter and our username is @WilliamHalstead.
We also have a Facebook page which is

Please sign up to this blog and we shall keep you posted on our world of textiles and the generations that we are weaving together.


  1. Hi William this is cool, I'm at work on a fishing boat 50 miles off the coast and I'm viewing this blog from my iPhone. Looks good, but I think one of the graphics is busted. Maybe figure out how to gain weight on images to overlay with text for better results.

  2. Thanks Sally, Hopefully it has been fixed now, Glad you like it :)
