About Jessgrove Ltd
Established in 1983, the Jessgrove Group has grown to become one of the leading suppliers of lining fabrics in Europe. It supplies some of the leading European retail names in the apparel sector, such as Burberry, Esprit, Paul Smith, S.Oliver, Ted Baker and many others, including independent tailors.
From humble origins, Jessgrove has grown by focussing relentlessly on the needs of our immediate customers, the garment manufacturers, the fashion retail chains and the ultimate end customers. When this focus has required major investments in facilities, we have not hesitated to make those investments.
In the 1990s, for example, we saw much of the traditional garment sector in the UK relocate to Central and Eastern Europe; so we established a presence in the Czech Republic in 1998, by 2002 we established a new 3,000 square metre warehouse facility designed to ensure quick and efficient distribution of our products.
In 2000, we helped our partner company, Toray Textiles Central Europe, establish a state-of-the-art Polyester lining manufacturing facility in the Czech Republic.
In 2003, we saw the worrying demise of the lining manufacturing base in the UK and Europe, so we invested in a manufacturing company in Lithuania, which now supplies many of our key products.
In 2007, we saw the rapid movement of garment making to China, so, along with a German partner, we set up a joint venture in Shanghai to service our customers’ need for quality linings in China.
The Jessgrove Group is headquartered in Bradford, England, and has subsidiaries in the Czech Republic, France and Austria and now Turkey, there are plans for further expansion in other key European markets.
The Group’s success is based on focus and staying flexible in a fast-changing world market. Because of the investments made over the past decade, Jessgrove is confident of further growth and success in new markets.

Liningas is a fully vertical unit for the production of all cellulosic items which include Acetate, Viscose, Poly/Viscose, and mixtures. We warp, weave, dye and finish all our articles. Acetate yarn is also produced on site – a big factor in today's situation where yarn supply is becoming extremely difficult on all types. It has a production capacity of 25 million metres which can readily be expanded to meet future growth. Liningas produces a full spectrum of articles, including Jacquards – and produces a whole series of famous names and logos for the industry.
