Consistency, woven from our lasting legacy
Established in 1819, John Foster is more than the story of a textile entrepreneur renowned for raising the bar in weaving quality worsted and worsted mohair fabrics for almost 200 years.
It is the legacy he laid for accepting only the highest British standards; those that ensure we continue to deliver the outstanding cloths you rely on. Always the innovator, John Foster took first prize for alpaca and mohair fabrics at the Great Exhibition in 1851 and most recently were awarded “The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise: International Trade”, regarded by many as a corporate knighthood.
Wherever your business is in the world, John Foster brings you a modern, seasonal collection of subtle stylish designs and timeless iconic British cloths including our Super 120’s or Super 150’s wool.
Our collections for men and women are available with a range of different finishes. From highly technical, antibacterial and water repellent finishes to the traditional London Shrunk.
Work with John Foster and you will feel the artistry and the true sense of connection to our roots that drives our dedication to produce some of the world’s finest fabrics. When you want that quintessentially British look there is no one better to talk to.
