For over 250 years, Joshua Ellis have been making some of the world’s finest and most luxurious fabrics in Yorkshire, England. We manufacture cloth and cashmere accessories for renowned fashion houses, couture ateliers and Savile Row tailors, and the garments they have made have clothed Royalty, World Leaders, Stars of stage and screen and Captains of industries and across the globe for nearly 3 centuries.
For the first time in our 250 year history, we now give customers the opportunity to design their own cashmere jacket or coat fabric. You will take on the role of Creative Director throughout the process and the end result will be a run of your own bespoke fabric to be delivered to your home or nominated tailor.
The process is very similar to the way in which we work with a luxury fashion house. Firstly, our cloth Designer will meet with you either in person at our mill or over video call to discuss your initial thoughts on what you are wanting to create.
Within 2 weeks you will receive a digital mood board and a reference fabric swatch at your home address so you can feel the handle for yourself to make sure you are happy.
We will then have a second video consultation where the brief will be confirmed and from there we will produce up to 4 CAD drawings of designs for your consideration.
These will be sent to your home address and upon review, we will have our third video consultation where further changes can be made. 1 further CAD will be supplied and from there we will sign off and go into work.
Once the design is approved we will weave and finish in our mill and send regular updates and videos of them being produced.
You will then receive a 7m length – enough for 2/3 jackets or 2 coats, or 6 cashmere blankets to your home address or tailor of your choice. If you would like some advice on tailors to use then we would be delighted to introduce you to one of our contacts with pleasure
To book your initial bespoke appointment please e-mail email@example.com or call our Head Office on 0044 1924 350070.
Cashmere jacketing – £2000 for 7m (enough for 2/3 jackets).
Cashmere coating – £2500 (enough for 2 coats).
Cashmere blankets/throws – £2750 (enough for 6)
Before the initial consultation, you will be asked to fill in a questionnaire to give us a better idea of what you are looking to create. We will also ask for a deposit of £500 at this stage which will be refundable after the initial consultation if it becomes clear that we are unable to achieve what you are looking for.
Please note that the whole process can take up to 6 months to complete. More information will be given at the initial consultation.
