Peter Reed represents the pinnacle of English linen making with a reputation for quality second to none. It’s a reputation based on 150 years of heritage and craftsmanship.


The story began in 1861 on the slopes of Pendle Hill in Lancashire, the heart of Britain’s world-leading textile industry, the cradle of the industrial revolution. With state-of-the-art water-powered looms Peter Reed and his son William set out to create the luxury linens that would be appreciated by an emerging cash-rich middle class of wealth-makers. These highly influential members of society travelled widely and were reluctant to leave behind the luxuries of home. It wasn’t long before hoteliers around the world quite literally cottoned-on. Only Peter Reed would do.
