LANX IS PROUD...
to work with Benjamin Thornber & Sons. A family run textile company based in Clitheroe, Lancashire. They have been creating high quality interior and apparel cloth since 1815.
As the industrial revolution was nearing its apex in 1815, Benjamin Thornber wanted in. A Lancastrian farmer with an interest in weaving, Benjamin gave his burgeoning textile business the push it needed by renting steam power for his looms in a Burnley factory. The gamble worked. Benjamin soon opened his own steam-powered mill in the same town. Benjamin Thornber & Sons was on the map.
Under the stewardship of grandson James, the business relocated to Clitheroe in 1906, the same town it is located in today. Benjamin Thornber and Sons now design and distribute fabrics worldwide, including the world-famous Pendle tweed, which takes its name from nearby Pendle Hill, home of the infamous Pendle witches who were put on trial in 1612.
