About Woods Fine Linens
Woods Fine Linens has been synonymous with fine linens ever since the first shop opened in 1895. Today, Woods is celebrated as one of the finest, most comprehensive linen shops in Europe.
Directed by B.I.I.D. fellow and respected interior designer William Woods, grandson of the founder, the shop is still run on enviable family business values. Our shop is a treasure trove of goods from all over the world, providing a choice and diversity rarely found under one roof.
Respected for quality and attention to detail, Woods Fine Linens operates its own interior design workshops, with a team of highly skilled craftspeople making curtains and furnishings to the highest possible standard.
Generations of satisfied customers, including royalty, enjoy the service provided by Woods' knowledgeable and friendly staff dedicated to advising customers and discovering the unusual. Put simply, our passions are quality, design and customer service.
Woods Fine Linens has been synonymous with fine linens since the early 19th century when George Woods managed the local flax mill. He wove fine linen, for which the area justly became famous. In 1895, his son, William Ernest Woods was inspired to open his first linen shop.
William's son, also George, took over the running of the business in 1940. And in 1965, at the tender age of 17 the young William Woods inherited the company when his parents were tragically killed.
In the early days, the shop supplied the town's major hotels with fine quality linens and towels. Standards were high and nothing would be sold unless it was the best, and sure to give good service. The reputation spread across Britain and Woods gained royal patronage.
Today the store offers its customers a rare shopping experience. Inside is a visual feast with a vast array of goods sourced from around the globe. We also have a well established and comprehensive interior design department specialising in the design and decoration of country homes.
We uphold the traditional values of good service, high quality and attention to detail. A visit to our store is a unique experience - the Edwardian lift takes customers between floors and purchases are still wrapped in brown paper and string, and carried out to your car.
