If you travel across the UK for business or pleasure, it’s odds-on Richard Haworth has supplied the luxury bed, bathroom and table linens to your five-star hotel, your B&B, your country pile, your favourite restaurant or spa.
Globally respected, this company was formed as a cotton-spinning and manufacturing firm in 1876. It has operated since the 1980s from Kearsley Mill – a magnificent, Edwardian Grade II listed building, comprising five storeys, each the size of a football pitch.
Richard Haworth was acquired by the Ruia Group and expanded from retail household linens to wholesale hospitality textiles.
Almost 40 years on, this firm boasts a clientele that includes The Gleneagles Hotel, P&O Cruises, Center Parcs, The Goring Hotel, Designers Guild, Radisson Edwardian, Gordon Ramsay and even Royal palaces.
And now you too can enjoy the Richard Haworth experience online; its extensive ranges are a mere click away. Everything from personalised bathrobes, towels and slippers, sheets hemmed on-site, bed runners, pillowcases and duvets, to sets of napkins and table coverings… you are privy to the best. In fact, hotel guests, delighted by their improved night’s sleep, are known to trace and contact the company when they arrive back home.
It is in this quest for perfection that Richard Haworth’s team of experts tests products for durability, absorbency, quality, touch and stitching. So, rest assured, your requirements – whether grandiose or small – will receive the same attention as any last-minute order for ten thousand items requiring overnight delivery.
It is rare and uplifting to see the legacy of Lancashire’s textile tradition in action today. Though goods are manufactured by carefully sourced, ethical companies in the Far East, they are often finished off here. Kearsley Mill’s 240,000-square-feet expanse ensures that stock, once approved, is immediately available. Last year, Richard Haworth Limited shipped over 10 million pieces to the UK and worldwide. Yes, the Ruia Group, of SOCKSHOP and Glenmuir Golf apparel fame, does nothing by halves.
Raj Ruia, Richard Haworth Managing Director, says: “Very few people realise the hi-tech laundries that hire out our hotel linens are key to the hospitality trade. Every room needs between three to five sets of bedclothes on the go. There’s one on the bed, one in the cupboard and one in the wash. Linens are subjected to strong chemical detergents and high-temperature presses. Towels must retain their absorbency and fresh appearance after each drying. Duvet covers must be easy for chambermaids to change. And to avoid staining, tableware must be made from synthetics – as long as they feel like cotton! We work alongside these laundries to supply hotels and spas. We look forward to serving you too.”
