FAB­RIC SPE­CIAL­IST

Homes & Gardens - - PROMOTIONAL FEATURE - IAN MANKIN Ian Mankin, ian­mankin.co.uk.

Ian Mankin has been pro­duc­ing beau­ti­ful clas­sic-con­tem­po­rary cot­ton fab­rics from its Lan­cashire mill for more than 30 years. Its new wool col­lec­tion fea­tures jac­quard de­signs in dyed Shet­land wool. Man­ag­ing direc­tor Si­mon Black­ley tells us more.

Wool is part of the UK’S her­itage.

De­spite it be­ing a nat­u­ral fi­bre, it can also be seen as a per­for­mance ma­te­rial be­cause its prop­er­ties mean it can be used for all sorts of things, from cur­tains and cush­ions to up­hol­stery and car­pets.

Our first wool col­lec­tion, Ash­field, brings a whole new feel to Ian Mankin’s range of wo­ven fab­rics.

We dye the fi­bres in sub­tly di≠er­ent colours to cre­ate a soft al­most heather-like look.

As there is cur­rently a re­newed in­ter­est in stripes and geo­met­rics,

we’ve ex­tended some of our de­signs to in­clude the much-loved pais­ley.
