Providing the benefit of over 140 years experience…

The Hilden name can be traced back to the 18th century with the invention of the Spinning Jenny by Oswaldtwistle-born textiles merchant, James Hargreaves. It was his descendants who, 100 years later, set up the Hilden brand with the same passion and expertise in textiles.

Founded in 1874, these descendants took the passion for textiles that they’d grown up with and formed the Hilden name; producing innovative and performance textiles with much investment going into refining their expertise.

Over the years, the Hilden performance linen has been seen in some of the world’s most well-known names from hotels, airlines, cruise lines, textile rental and distribution companies.
