With over 170 years of history, Dormeuil has been in charge of producing the most exclusive luxury fabrics. With their mix of British elegance and the touch of French chic, Dormeuil has built a brilliant reputation, being the choice of royalty, dignitaries, celebrities and connoisseurs all over the world.
Founded in 1842 by Jules Dormeuil, the company started importing sophisticated English fabrics to Paris. A few years later, House of Dormeuil started its expansion until becoming one of the most successful family businesses in the fashion industry. One of their main innovative creations was Sportex in 1922, the first selvedged material that later became a must, specially in sports outerwear. Thanks to this fabric, their headquarters moved to the famous Regent Street in London, considered the heart of the textile retail industry.
During the 50s, Dormeuil started to collaborate with the Parisian haute couture, creating new luxury fabrics with very special textures and finishes. The mix between materials and the innovation in their manufacturing process has been revolutionizing the world of high range fabrics throughout the years.
The textiles by House of Dormeuil are part art, part science and also part nature. The combination of tradition and the British know-how along with the French sophistication, have produced some of the best and finest textiles in the world. The experience accumulated during all this decades, together with the technological progress and innovation, have been a crucial factor in the improving of their fabrics and finishes. The touch of sophistication is brought by the design team, based in Paris. The mix of textures, fabrics and colors, the elegance of French style, are one of the key features that define the brand.
