As we celebrate two centuries of creating transport textiles, we’re taking a look back at our rich heritage and the journey that has brought us to where we are today.
In the first part of our story, we spoke with Michael Holdsworth. The sixth generation of the Holdsworth family, Michael describes how his ancestor founded a woollen spinning mill in the North of England which grew to become a global fabric manufacturer, creating textiles for such iconic transport routes as London Underground and the Orient Express.
A pioneering project by Deutsche Bahn, the IdeasTrain (Ideenzug) features a bespoke wire woven fabric by global textile manufacturer Camira.
Aimee Larson, Senior Designer at Camira, explains everything you need to know about creating the perfect fabric for your railway.
Railway-News spoke with Camira, transport textile experts for over 200 Years, to get their perspective on the post-pandemic rail landscape.
Deutsche Bahn selected Oceanic - Camira's first recycled polyester to include plastic ocean waste - to upholster the site's chairs and sofas.
Camira answer questions from operators, manufacturers & users on effective ways to keep safe whilst moving forward in the ‘new normal’.
