About Prestigious Textiles - Background
Founded in 1988 by Trevor Helliwell – now Chairman of the Prestigious group - Prestigious Textiles quickly carved out a niche as a specialist textile wholesaler and distributor supplying retailers in the UK and Ireland. Today, the company reaches out to a customer base stretching around the world, with a portfolio embracing wallpapers and curtain poles in addition to fabrics for draperies, upholstery and accessories.
Headquarters is a custom-built facility in the textile heritage heartland of West Yorkshire. This 60,000 ft2 complex houses bulk stock piece-goods, cut-lengths, computerised sampling and cutting distribution departments plus wallpaper and curtain pole warehousing, supported by off-site stockholding warehouses and a sample manufacturing unit. With partner businesses in Ireland, France, Germany, the Netherlands, South Africa and China plus trading alliances in over 100 countries, goods are sent daily to destinations worldwide.
Yet perhaps Prestigious Textiles’ greatest strength lies closer to home. A firm commitment to its own legacy and ongoing investment in corporate resources have secured both a high profile and a fine reputation – attributes which continue to foster loyalty and respect from Prestigious Textiles’ employees, agents, stockists, designers, media and consumers alike.
