Yorkshire Textiles Features in Big Issue

Published : June 26, 2014

Yorkshire Textiles were instrumental in a 4 page article in The Big Issue magazine this month on the textiles industry in the North. This is another example of how we are helping drive the revival of the industry in the region. As well as reporting on our initiatives, the article covered intelligent textiles and the use of textiles in the automotive and aeronatutical industries, as well as the less unexpected topics of high quality woollen clothing and how we are helping the resurgence by showcasing and promoting innovative projects.
