The Northern Clothing and Textile Network, founded by David Reay and Design Network North, is a community of entrepreneurs, designers and creatives with an interest in the clothing and textiles sector. Whether you’re all about cushions or haute couture, you’ll be made welcome here.

The North is enjoying significant growth in the clothing and textiles industry – yet so few people are aware of it.
Together, we can show Great Britain, and the world, that there is fantastic opportunity to grow your business here in the North. From big name brands like Berghaus and Barbour to local tailors and designers – the North has a lot to offer the industry.
This network belongs to you! Let us know what you want, and what you’d like from the network, and how we can support you and your business.
