The London Textile Fair

With more than 470 exhibitors, The London Textile Fair is the UK’s Premier platform for fashion fabrics, clothing accessories, print studios and vintage garments.

TLTF provides manufacturers and their agents with the opportunity to showcase their products to the most influential British buyers and designers. The show is one of the top industry events within the UK with an increasing international appeal.

TLTF offers buyers, distributors and designers the opportunity to view a large range of textiles from the most prestigious textile mills in Europe – all under one roof!

TLTF attracts designers, buyers and product developers who come not only to maintain existing relationships but work also to source and develop new and exciting products. Being in London, not only is the fair extremely convenient for all our customers but it provides a fantastic opportunity to find inspirational, relevant and directional collections.



TLTF are planning to launch a new exhibition exclusively dedicated to high-end European fashion fabric manufacturers.

The show aims to fill the gap for a high quality textile show able to attract luxury and high-end British fashion brands.

The exhibitors will be scrupulously selected by Textile Events on the basis of the quality and the location of the manufacturing.
