About us

Acorn Fabrics Ltd

Generations of quality: Based in the traditional heartland of Britain's textile industry, Acorn Fabrics brings 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 a hundred years and spanning four generations.

In 1985 Acorn Fabrics moved to modern, purpose-built premises. From here; they 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.

Design is key: The majority of the collection is 100% cotton, 36"/90cm wide shirting fabric although, most recently, Acorn Fabrics have been able to offer 60"/150cm wide fabric through its Classic Shirtings sister company. Only 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 160's. Acorn offer both classic and contemporary designs, whilst in the Classic Shirtings range, the traditional patterns are offered but in general, designs are a little bolder.

English production: Acorn Fabrics are one of few companies left in the UK 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 the highest standard of production. Although we can still weave some of our products in the UK, finishing has to be sent into Europe and then brought back again for stocking and distribution.

Fabric from stock: Acorn offer over 800 items across the two collections. 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 is no minimum order restrictions. Acorn Fabrics 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 Fabrics 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 Fabrics are supplying fabrics to over 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.
