Edmund Bell Fabrics and Homewares
Started by one entrepreneurial textile merchant. Edmund Bell established the company to which he gave his name in 1855, passing the business on to his two sons, Henry & Clifford, when he died in 1890. At the start of World War 2, the need arose for black out fabrics to protect against German bombers. The heavy Black Italian cloth produced by Edmund Bell was deemed ideal for this purpose, which is how Edmund Bell inadvertently entered the domestic curtain and upholstery soft furnishing market which would be the focus of their future. Throughout the years they have worked closely with manufacturers and finishers to develop the cutting edge processes which enable them to produce the finest quality products in the industry.
