On the silk trail in Sudbury, Suffolk

After many years of threatening and /or promising Julius Walters that I would go and see his family’s silk mill in Sudbury, Suffolk, I made it. It’s a very impressive business, employing 120 people, including 12 designers. Stephen Walters produces tie fabrics, apparel fabrics for men and women, and scarves. David Walters is the side of the business that produces interiors fabrics for upholstery, drapes, throws and so on. This is what I call a family business – Julius is the ninth generation. A great British success story. Keep up the good work.
