Standfast and Barracks, our wonderful fabric printing company, received the royal seal of approval as HRH The Princess of Wales visited our impressive, Grade II listed working factory. Catherine, The Princess of Wales was shown our historic archive, filled with our designs from past and present, and greeted our teams based at the Lancaster site.

The Princess herself has links to industry and manufacture. William Lupton & Co, based in Leeds is a woollen manufacturer and merchant on the Princess’s paternal ancestral line.
