Humphries Weaving is located at Ashburton Lodge, the Victorian mill manager’s house and the same building where we first started manufacturing in 1972. Here we undertake design development, project management, host showroom visits and utilise our unique colour and design archive.
Sudbury Silk Mills is our weaving mill situated close the river Stour in Suffolk, England. The site overlooks ancient water meadows, a rural idyll that has remained untouched for centuries.
As a vertical production jacquard weaving mill, the entire process from yarn dyeing, warping, jacquard program designing, weaving to finished fabric can be followed through the factory. There are 48 looms in operation at the mill, producing a wide range of fabrics of exceptional quality, all custom-woven to order. Our highly skilled weavers and technicians undertake all the weaving on site, and every metre of fabric is inspected by hand before leaving the mill.
