Textile Enterprises Ltd

A Family Run Business for Over 20 Years


From our Head Office and Manufacturing Plant in Leicester England, we can deliver throughout the UK, Europe and Internationally.

We know that when you need something, you often need it very quickly; that’s why we offer next-day delivery. And, if you can collect or want to use a same-day courier, we can even arrange for you to have our products or samples on the same day.

Unlike some companies, we don’t insist on big orders. Our minimum order is just £75. So even if you just need 10 of something for a special job, you won’t be penalised for a small run.

We always promote adequate stock levels to serve our customers. The stock levels have been set with a view to ensuring that the customer’s demands can be delivered. Delivery is, as standard, next day where viable. Alongside the stock products we also manufacturer products to a customer request, dependant on quantity & material used. These products are designed and manufactured to the customers specifications using our bespoke services following sample approvals.
