Decades of experience and expertise...
The history of Vantona reaches back as far as 1780 and the industrial revolution, when the cotton towns of Lancashire were at the forefront of worldwide textile production.
In 1929, six of the original surviving manufacturers in Lancashire merged together to create Vantona, enabling a fine textile tradition to be born, and the company has been firmly embedded in the household textile market ever since.
A globally recognised brand
Vantona grew through the 1920s and survived the Indian boycott of British cotton which devastated the mills of Lancashire and throughout the second World War supplied textile goods to the armed forces as well as leading household textile stores and supplying hotels and hospitals.
Throughout the 1960’s the Lancashire textile industry was in decline with a mill closing virtually every week. Nevertheless Vantona was now a globally recognised brand, exporting to countries across the world and in 1975, it followed sister company Dorma and launched a range of 70’s style florals and geometrics in key colours of the time.
Vantona witnessed the rise and demise of the British textile industry, and has had to re-invent itself along the way and it is now at the forefront of the growing strength of the home furnishings industry.
Today Vantona is family owned and is part of an integrated group with production facilities both in Britain and overseas which enables the company again to offer a diverse range of quality homewares.
