UK Luxury Consumer Linen Brand expands to Hospitality Market

Christy – a luxury brand of consumer towels and bedlinens – has decided to expand its business into hospitality. The company’s story began in 1850 with the introduction of the towel as we know it today. Founder Henry Christy returned to England from travels to Constantinople with a sample of looped pile fabric which was new to the Western World. He and his brother studied the fabric intensively. After that they managed to create a machine which was able to produce terry towelling on a large scale.

The new hospitality textiles will include bed linen, towels and robes. The items will be produced for commercial laundering: no poppers, buttons or useless fasteners. All products have been tested in different types of industrial laundry facilities and will meet the requirements of use and lifecycles at hotels. The new Hospitality range is to include robes and hammam towels, bath sheets and hand towels for use in pools, spas or treatment rooms.

The company also announced its intention to launch a separate Welspun Hospitality range, consisting of towels, robes and linen for the mainstream laundry sector. The range will be competitively priced and is to meet the same standards.
