1822–2022: 200 Years of Transport Textiles by Camira

  • This article first appeared in the Railway-News magazine Issue 1 2022.

Global fabric manufacturer Camira is celebrating 200 years of creating transport textiles this year and, to mark the milestone anniversary, the company has a number of exciting launches, events and promotions set to take place over the next twelve months.

We spoke with Sarah Mallinson, Transport Designer at Camira, to find out what is coming up – as well as to discuss a few of Camira’s highlights from the past two centuries.

Q: Could you tell us a little about your 200-year anniversary? How will you be celebrating?

Sarah Mallinson: “We’re so proud of our heritage, and this year’s anniversary gives us the perfect opportunity to take a moment to pause and reflect on all that we’ve achieved in the last two centuries – from starting out as a worsted wool spinning mill in the North of England through to our current position as a global supplier with locations as far afield as Australia and North America, and expertise in an extensive range of manufacturing capabilities, it really has been an incredible journey in more ways than one.

We have a few different projects in the pipeline to mark the occasion – one of which is a brand-new capability that will be launching in just a few weeks, and which we can’t wait to debut, as it’s something new not just for us, but for the industry as whole. Alongside this, we’ll be celebrating with customers and colleagues at an event in our London showroom in the early summer – and this will be a great occasion to look back at some of our most famous fabrics and memorable moments, as well as catching up in person after so long spent apart.”
