Hainsworth Fashion
cloth worn by soldiers


The famous ‘Thin Red Line” of troops at the battle of Waterloo was Red thanks to the striking Scarlet cloth produced by Hainsworth for the soldiers.
There is no doubt that the British soldiers were an impressive sight on the battlefield adorned in Hainsworth scarlet cloth and the same pride in the production of this distinctive fabric is put into production today. The Queen’s Guards still wear it as do Royalty in full military dress uniform.
