About Us

The Background of Jim Dickens

Jim Dickens takes its name from one James G. Dickens, born 1901, the maternal grandfather of our company's founder, who served to inspire in his grandson a lifelong fascination in all things textile and design.

James set out as an upholsterer in the Black Country, mastering the techniques and skills of the craft before leaving the Midlands in 1931 for life in London. Here, he pursued a career in the textile industry working as a Fabric & Passementerie agent for the Art Textile Co. of Featherstone St, amongst many others.

The Early Days

In 1994, the company's founder Dominic established Loomcraft, a beautiful shop nestled in the historic city of Lichfield, Staffordshire, which became a treasure trove of fabrics imported from the finest mills across the continent. From here, Dominic set about developing his own fabrics for the English market, drawing from a wealth of designs and compositions from his own personal archive, as well as working in collaboration with a network of highly recognised designers throughout the country.

This work would lay the foundation for the establishment of Jim Dickens in 2004, named in homage to the lasting influence of a life lived immersed in textiles.

Elanbach

In July 2013, the renowned Welsh print company Elanbach became a sister brand to Jim Dickens. The soft prints of Elanbach work perfectly as an accompaniment to the strong designs and heavy weaves that make up the Jim Dickens collection. Printing from its own building a stones throw away from our current location in Lichfield, we digitally print to order samples and orders from across the globe on a daily basis.

The Team Today

Today, a closely woven team of a dozen dedicated members work from our base in Lichfield, to provide a personal and bespoke service, supplying fabrics of distinction to our clients across Europe and beyond. Now established for more than a decade, Jim Dickens continues to flourish, sustaining a love affair with the textile industry that began almost a century ago.
