Textiles - Fabric by the Metre

Made entirely in the UK, Bert & May fabrics are woven in Scotland, printed in Cheshire and finished on the Scottish borders. The whole process takes approximately eight weeks to complete. We use the finest raw cotton and linen; our flax yarn is grown and spun in Western Europe using a blend of crops harvested over three years, which enables us to produce the softest possible cloth.
