About Us

Our History

Established in 1946 and based at our corporate headquarters in Nottingham, England (well known for its World famous Lace Market), we have in recent years become recognized as one of the most innovative independent textile suppliers in the United Kingdom, with customers all around the world turning to Litmans time and again for creative, on-trend fabrics as well as traditional laces and nets.

Litmans are very well known for our extensive range of creative and fantasy fashion fabrics. Embroidered lace and nets, plain fabrics, bridal, cocktail, prom dress and evening wear are all part of our huge range of fabrics.

Recently, we have created our own Nottingham Laces; patterns which have been designed in Nottingham, England and are produced at our partner mills. These designs are exclusive to Litmans.  We're proud to be bringing genuine Nottingham lace back to the world.

Our Goals

We are a service lead business. Our customers demand and receive fast and efficient delivery of their goods. Our large stocking facility means that the entire range is carried ex-stock which means we can often ship orders the day we receive our customer’s requirements. Our excellent distribution system means we are able to ship goods to clients all around the globe within days of receiving a customer order.

Our goal is to offer our customers a fantastic selection of stock fabrics which will arrive the day after the order is placed in the UK and within a week for the rest of the world.

So, please look through our web site and see if there’s anything that catches your eye……we’d love to talk to you about your fabric needs.
