Alfred Brown is a family run mill and weavers of fine worsted cloth who are based in Leeds, Yorkshire founded in 1915. Alfred Brown is a true example of British craftsmanship.
Alfred Brown is committed to the environment and their local community. Since 2016 the Mill has been powered by electricity supplied by wind farms and continually employ skilled people from the local community. All of Alfred Brown's wool is certified non mulsed ensuring ethical farming and good animal welfare is practised when producing the wool. At Laura Pitharas all our tailored fabrics are 100% Wool, wool is a sustainable natural material which has a long life, is biodegradable and can be easily be re-cycled into new yarns.
We visited the Mill in August 2021, it was a fascinating experience observing the start, middle and end process of the fabric weaving. The team at Alfred Brown were incredibly welcoming and happy to share their passion and detail of their work.
