Our Values

Quality First

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. So you know when you are buying from Acorn you are buying the finest quality and the same quality that we are proud to supply to the shirt makers of Savile row.

Design is Key

Although the majority of the collection is 100% cotton, we also offer specialised compositions such as 100% Linen and a Bamboo/Linen blend for the summer months, wool/Cotton blends for the winter months and a spun silk in ivory for that very special occasion. These natural fibres are used to produce fine quality shirtings in a variety of different weaves and designs- ranging from traditional oxfords and heavy twills to sheer voiles and superfine 170's.

So we hopefully offer all the types and styles of fabric a tailor, designer or fabric enthusiast would ever need. All these fabrics are designed in-house at our premises in Nelson Lancashire which was once the heartland of the British cotton industry.

English and European Production

Acorn are one of few companies left that still use production facilities based in England. Acorn collaborate with a handful of mills based across the North of England, working closely with each and every one to maintain a high standard of production. We also use mills in Italy, Portugal and Switzerland to commission weave our designs. All our partners are signed up to the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX and the better cotton initiative BCI.

Fabric from Stock

Acorn offer more than 400 designs in total across 50 different qualities. Goods are supplied from stock and coming round which means that designs are produced and stocked rather than made to order, enabling a quick response to customer enquiries. If goods are temporarily out of stock, they are usually replenished unless they have been selected to be discontinued from the range.

No Minimum Order Quantity

As the fabrics are supplied from stock, there are no minimum order restrictions. We can process orders from as small as fabric needed for alterations and repairs, to individual shirt lengths ( all referenced with customers names if required) , through to several hundred metres for larger production orders.

Marketing and Swatching

Although the Internet is a powerful selling tool, most of Acorn's marketing is done via the range cards and individual swatches that it produces. Despite the fact that reproduction of fabric is improving over the Internet, in many cases the shirting is sold due to the superior handle. Larger swatches of anything viewed within this site can be obtained by request.

Worldwide Shipping

Acorn are supplying fabrics to more than 20 countries through a complex network of representatives and sales agents. Using the world's most reliable couriers and freight forwarders, we can quickly distribute shirtings across the globe.
