Ethical textiles business moves into "state-of-the-art" former Emmerdale site

A flourishing new retail textile business has moved into a “state-of-the-art” studio at the former site of ITV’s Emmerdale.

Aristocrat London, which specialises in polo shirts, T-shirts, hoodies and Baseball caps, has moved into the 1912 Mill at Sunny Bank Mills in Farsley near Leeds.

The company was based in Leeds city centre, and focuses on selling ethical clothing by sourcing materials in-houses.

Mac Rai commented: “We are a British retail fashion brand, led by an innovative and ethical ethos. Our clothing range is made from organic cottons and is vegan, without using any animal testing.

“We are honored to be based in a former worsted weaving mill in the heart of Sunny Bank Mills in Farsley.

“Our wonderful new premises encompass our showroom, design studios, photography studios, print studios and office. We keep everything in-house, so we can control the quality of our clothing range and create a well-respected label, and sell on-line across the world.

“Our aim is offer beautifully designed and comfortable garments at a competitive price. My own experience in the clothing industry stretches back two decades, working extensively with niche brands which were sold in prestigious fashion houses such as Harvey Nichols, Flannels, and Selfridges.

“I chose Sunny Banks Mills primarily because of its rich textiles heritage, which fits in perfectly with our brand. And it has been a tremendous bonus to find that William and John Gaunt, who own and manage the mill, are incredibly helpful with everything we do.”
