About John Lewis & Partners Textiles Factory
The Herbert Parkinson textile factory in Darwen, Lancashire, was brought into the John Lewis Partnership in 1953, and ever since it’s been a thriving example of UK design, quality and craftsmanship, with Partners investing pride back into the business they own.
Combining the best of modern technology and traditional skills, those Partners make many of John Lewis's own brand soft furnishings, duvets and pillows, and all of our Made to Measure Express 7-14 day service curtains, cushions, roman and roller blinds. They make customised duvets too.
Herbert Parkinson is a significant workplace in the local community with over 250 Partners working there. It's also a family affair, with over a quarter of Partners having a relative as a colleague. John Lewis's longest-serving Partner has 40 years of service.
