Dugdale Bros & Co Cloth Merchants at the Centre of Cloth Making since 1896
Dugdale Bros & Co are cloth merchants based in the very centre of Yorkshire's worsted industry despatching fine cloth from an imposing historic headquarters building in Huddersfield.
The company offers an impressive collection of high quality cloth to the finest tailors, designers, couturiers and retailers throughout the world.
Our designers have captured the spirit and heritage of centuries of weaving in Yorkshire and have brought a thoroughly modern interpretation to the elegant classics worn by true gentleman the world over. With advances in technology, we have embraced the new processes that enable fabric to shed creases easily, retain shape over longer periods and be extremely comfortable to wear.
In addition to our wide range of cloth, an extremely comprehensive range of tailors' trimmings is available ranging from buttons and threads to linings and canvases.
Dugdale Bros remains an independent, family owned Huddersfield firm founded in 1896. In a world of globalisation, we are proud to have used these rare skills here in the heart of Yorkshire to design and manufacture a range of exceptional cloth to meet the high standards sought by today's customer.
All of our cloth and tailors' trimmings can be purchased online or
