Manufacturers’ Name



Woven from a blend of wool and flax, Main Line Twist is a tweed-effect textile with a beautiful, rustic appearance. Sustainable by design, this eco-friendly fabric expands Camira’s innovative collection of textiles woven from natural materials. When blended with wool in the right proportions, flax creates a beautifully soft fabric which is fully biodegradable and compostable.


Hayley Barrett has almost 30 years of experience working in the textiles industry, having started her career in the retail home sector before moving into high-end fashion and then joining Camira in the contract fabrics industry. Hayley has an undergraduate degree in Textile Design from the University of Huddersfield, specialising in woven textiles. Hayley enjoys experimenting with different textures and combinations of woven structures to balance the aesthetics and performance of contract fabrics.


Senior Designer at Camira, Jane Marks-Yewdall is a passionate advocate of sustainable textiles, and her most recent launches include Craggan Flax, an inherently flame retardant wool & flax fabric, alongside Quest, made from waste marine plastic. With over two decades’ experience, her wealth of knowledge and experience – alongside her innate creativity – make her an invaluable member of the Camira design team.
