Job: Gainsborough Fine Weavers & Dye House

The Company
Founded in 1903, Gainsborough Fine Weavers & Dye House embodies over a century of British craftsmanship. The entire production process – from design, to hand-dyeing yarns, to weaving the finished fabrics – takes place on the site they have occupied since 1924. They received the Royal Warrant from HM The Queen in 1981.

Alongside their own collections, Gainsborough has long been a textile house for any interior designer seeking  bespoke fabrics, from contemporary, geometric styles to the richest of damasks and pearl-embroidered silks, and our their willingness to support creative craftspeople in their endeavours remains a cornerstone of their offering.

The role
Gainsborough is looking to hire experienced weavers, including hand weavers to join its production team in Sudbury. They have both Jacqaurd Dornier electronic looms as well as 1930s punch-card operated Hattersley Looms.

Successful applicants will be trained both in Dornier and Hattersley operation and also have the opportunity to widen their skill set in other areas of the production process.

If you have the skills and aptitude to work in a traditional fine weaving business, please get in touch with Diane Sargeant – diane@gainsborough.co.uk
Starting salary £8 per hour, 40 hours per week.
