Northcroft Fabrics, based in Berkshire, was established in 1991 by John Kitching to design and produce a selection of quality fabrics for the interior design market.

Prior to setting up his company, John had spent 30 years in the industry and ran one of the leading furnishing fabric companies, which was part of a larger, publicly quoted company.

Northcroft Fabrics produces beautiful designs in velvets, silks and damasks. However John has always had a particular fondness for velvets, even before they became fashionable again in the last decade and has offered a selection of velvets within the Northcroft Fabric range from the very beginning.

Over the years, John has been able to develop his interest in historic fabrics and has produced designs for his own range as well as being involved in the restoration of historic buildings such as Cliffe Castle in Keighley as well as Temple Newsam and Lotherton Hall near Leeds.
