Bolton-based linen supplier – Richard Haworth – is set to benefit from the £27.4million boon created for Manchester by the Conservative Party Conference.
The party leaders, who are staying at The Midland Hotel from 2 to 5 October, will enjoy the restaurant’s new Richard Haworth Signature Plus linen. The tablecloths and napkins, which are used by top celebrity chefs Marco Pierre White and Antony Worrall Thompson, are made from 100 per cent texturised polyester with a unique cotton-feel, making them easy to launder to maintain a pristine appearance for longer.
The white linen will adorn tables in The French – the luxury brasserie in the four star hotel, which is owned by QHotels – where the leaders will experience fine dining throughout their four day stay.
The two Manchester-based companies have worked closely for four years and this order cements the trusting relationship between them at this important time.
Raj Ruia, managing director of Richard Haworth, said: “We’re extremely proud of our Manchester roots and the quality of our linens, and feel that this order reinforces that.
“Supplying our linens for special guests at momentous Manchester events is important to us and our team of skilled machinists and quality controllers ensure everything we supply is the absolute best there is in the industry.”
The Signature Plus range is revolutionary, in that it has been created using advanced textile technology with the restaurateur in mind. It features a plain weave fabric, which combines specially designed fibres with a unique soft-touch finish for a luxurious “cotton-soft” feel, to ensure linens stay looking new for longer.
Richard Haworth, who turned the order around quickly, prides itself on being able to deliver exactly what its customers want. With its own hemming mill, Richard Haworth is able to produce quality and bespoke linen under restricted time constraints.
Richard Haworth supplies quality linen for the bed, bath, dining room and kitchen and supplies everyone from B&Bs and laundries, to large hotel chains, such as the Crowne Plaza.
