There are endless combinations of constructions and special finishes that Palmhive can adopt and we will guide you methodically through the options.

The operation of our material is vital to so many sectors. Body armour, patient lifting devices, medical dressings, engine hoses, contract furnishings, baby carriers and military camouflages are just a few of the diverse areas where we are trusted to deliver.

A talented team of over 100 people use their combined knowledge and experience to engineer textile solutions at our headquarters in Nottingham, UK.

Partnerships with off-shore ventures support our UK base and provide extensive resources for acquiring raw materials and complementary fabrics.

Our supplies are made under the control of an ISO 9001 Quality Assurance System and independent testing can be arranged to certify product performance.
