Based in Derbyshire, one of the most respected counties for beautiful clothing, they have been the first name on people's lips when it comes to tights for may years. Their "Pretty Cool" and "Nylons" ranges have been refined and improved upon for years, some of them for decades, and now they are at height of skilled design.
After Nylon became the chief yarn for leg wear, they pioneered its use in the UK and started making tights, the newest item of hosiery.
From Post-War Britain, right up to the modern day, Courtaulds have taken every new trend in its stride and made it its own! Today they've even broken out into the ultra-fashionable sectors of the industry, partnering with designers such as Henry Holland.
Today, they are part of the Courtaulds group, which includes Pretty Polly, Aristoc and Elbeo, and they occupy the largest textile manufacturing plant in the UK. Today, they're still the industry leaders, they're still the most innovative and they're still the very best Britain has to offer!
