Nurturing the British Weaving Industry

As the oldest of London’s 112 Livery Companies, the Weavers’ Company continues to encourage excellence in all spheres of the United Kingdom’s woven textile industry, identifying, supporting and nurturing exceptional students training for the industry as well as young talent already working within it. We support centres of excellence in textile education, while recognising and working with those who have made the most significant contributions to the textile industry.

Our Work


By setting up motivational relationships with a Mentor on both sides of the prison gate, Switchback helps young men to find a way out of the justice system and build a stable, rewarding life they can be proud of.

The Weavers’ Company was one of Switchback’s first funders, helping them to get started in 2009. Today the Weavers’ are helping Switchback to get their real-life experience course accepted as part of the syllabus with the prison service and probationary practitioners.
