Generations of Quality
Based in the traditional heartland of Britain's textile industry, Acorn Fabrics is bringing more than a touch of dynamism back to this historic area of Lancashire, with its vistas of Victorian mills and rugged scenery. In fact the Chatburn family, proprietors of Acorn, can point to a tradition in textiles dating back more than one hundred years and spanning four generations.
In 1985 Acorn moved to modern, purpose-built premises. From here; we design, organise production, stock, market and distribute some of the finest shirtings available today. Annually, literally tonnes of fabric are shipped around the world in response to an ever growing global demand for fine quality and fast delivery.
The Chatburn family which owns Acorn Fabrics on Nelson’s Lomeshaye Industrial Estate can point to a tradition in textiles dating back 90 years and spanning four generations.
Acorn is run by the founder John Chatburn and his sons Chris and James. If they can’t help you with all their years of experience no one can!
As our fabrics are used by the top tailors, designers and sewers from around the world, the quality and feel of the fabric is paramount. To achieve this we use the finest long staple cotton, modern production methods coupled we generations of experience.
