Happy 150th birthday James Hare!

A heart warming story of milling folk…the James Hare story is all about the enterprising British spirit, and the success of one small family business founded on ‘upright dealing’, ‘honest value’ and ‘full satisfaction’. A business which has grown to become Britain’s leading silk specialist, producing luxury textiles for the demanding world of fashion and interiors worldwide. Read the story for yourself, including extracts from employees from the 1800’s: http://www.james-hare.com/history-james-hare.php
