Where heritage and vision meet to create Textile Excellence

About Us

Since our formation in 1970, The SIL Group has grown into a world-class vertically integrated group of specialist textile businesses. Individually and collectively, our brands are recognised on the world stage for their heritage, unrivalled quality, sophisticated designs and technical expertise.

We are proud to be a family-owned group where family members remain involved in the day to day running of the business

We specialise in sourcing natural fibres from worldwide origin markets and selling them to a full spectrum of clients who are involved in processing, manufacturing and tailoring the finest fabrics or finished garments.

Our group strength comes from the diversity of our businesses, the stability offered by centralised group support functions and the strategic overview we gain from integrating our market knowledge.

The SIL Group is creating a bright future for textiles by investing in new technology, refining contemporary and bespoke designs and responding to the needs of our customers and our supply chain.

Our Vision

To be the world’s leading textile group recognised and respected for our technical expertise, quality of service and business integrity. From the world’s finest fibres to the world’s finest fabrics.

Over 50 years

Founded by Raymond Seal, The SIL Group remains a family business and is now managed by his sons Andrew and Jeremy. A third-generation is now involved across the business ensuring continuity and a genuine passion for textiles.

The family’s uncompromising standards and decades of experience bring stability and confidence to a Group whose businesses can trace their heritage back over 250 years. In some cases, these businesses are still located on their original site.

We know that a magnificent heritage is no guarantee of future success, so every business within our Group is working independently to remain relevant to today’s markets. We do this by introducing product and process innovations, identifying global trends, investing in advanced technology and responding quickly to client needs.

Although we work on a global scale, we never lose sight of our family values and we aim to be the very best at what we do. We are committed to delivering the finest products and striving to create a sustainable future for the textile industry.

We are SIL Holdings and we believe in Corporate Responsibility
