About A W Hainsworth & Sons Ltd
A family business, Hainsworth have woven luxury woollen cloth for use in fashion and interiors since 1783.
The Hainsworth family have been producing woollen textiles in the Farsley area since 1783 and AW Hainsworth and Sons is one of the oldest Yorkshire companies.
The first Hainsworth mill, Cape Mills of Farsley, was leased in 1800 by Abimelech (Old Bim as he as fondly known) who is said to have saved his money from his business as a clothier (cloth merchant) for 17 years to eventually be able to afford to do the deal.
The current mill which the family have occupied since 1882 dates back to 1794. Over 200 years, additional buildings have been added to house the increasing variety of textile production machinery required by a flexible modern mill.
The current mill has 192,000 ft2 of manufacturing space and some 37 different roofing structures!!!
