Who We Work With

UKFT members include some of the UK’s most well-known fashion and textile brands, heritage success stories and emerging designer labels, alongside the manufacturers and suppliers that turn those designs into a reality. Our community spans some of the most innovative spinners and weavers the world has to offer, as well as traditional businesses preserving skills that have been handed down through the generations.

We are proud to work with everyone from established family businesses through to pioneering catwalk designers, leading education institutions and progressive production units that partner with some of the world’s biggest names. Our members range in size from small and local producers up to global super brands, but what they have in common is a belief in quality, craftsmanship and a commitment to creative talent.

Most fashion and textile businesses join with Core UKFT Membership but we also welcome Education Partners, Retail Partners, Associate Members and Federated Members. Find out more below.
