Hainsworth, a leading specialist textiles company based in Pudsey, West Yorkshire, has announced a collaboration with slipper brand Rudels. Hainsworth felts and cloths have been chosen by Rudels for its range of luxury slippers, offering customers timeless fashion with quality and durability.

“Working with the very best British suppliers is crucially important to us, and there are no better materials than Hainsworth. We’re looking forward to cementing a long-term partnership between Rudels and A.W Hainsworth,” commented Bradley Rudelhoff, owner of Rudels.

Rudels, part of The British Wool Association, Campaign for Wool, and associate member of the British Footwear Association and Make it British, was launched in 2016 by founder Bradley Rudelhoff, who identified a gap in the market for luxury slippers for both men and women, combining his knowledge of made to measure and ready to wear experience. The result is a range of beautiful, top quality slippers, made in the UK using Hainsworth True Heritage fabrics.

Hainsworth’s True Heritage fabrics are very traditional and firmly fixed in the history of Hainsworth. Made from wool, the True Heritage range consists of fabrics selected from worsted, over-coating and authentic uniform materials. Rudels is shortly launching two new styles with three different coloured felts from the Heritage range.

“Rudel’s is a wonderful brand that really takes pride in the quality and style of its footwear, which is why we’re delighted to be involved in this collaboration,” said Julie Greenough, Marketing Manager at A.W Hainsworth. “The Rudels offering is second to none; providing its customers with luxury, superb quality, perfect fitting slippers that will last for years to come.”
