About your host

I started building this mill in 2011 with one loom. Now we have about 40 tons of machinery, dating from the 1870s to the 1980s, that have been carefully rescued and restored to working order. The London Cloth Company works with clients including Ralph Lauren, Hardy Amies, and DAKS. I'm proud to be one of Airbnb's top-reviewed hosts globally.
