Richard Howarth

Richard Haworth, established in 1876, is the UK’s largest leading supplier of bed, bath and table linen to the hospitality sector. We literally scour the globe for the best-in-class mills that can deliver to our very stringent quality requirements. We not only check in-production before the products arrive at these shores, but we also do a full statistical check on goods inwards with our Quality Assurance team. We have a fully-fledged textile laboratory to ensure our products meet the requirements of the linen rental operators.  In addition, we have the largest flat sewing facility in the UK where we can work to bespoke requirements and additionally, we have an inhouse embroidery facility.

We believe that quality and consistency are key to the sector and are proud to have ISO:9001 and ISO:14001. We have been a long-standing member of the Ethical Trade Initiative and more recently the Better Cotton Initiative and thereby actively promote social and ethical compliance across all areas of the business from the cotton farm to production and delivery. We hold a huge inventory here in the UK to ensure next day delivery.
