The Christy story stretches all the way back to 1850, when our Manchester cotton mill began weaving the softest bath towels the world had ever seen. From that day to this, we’ve been filling homes with unmistakably British products, designed with love and made to last.
Over 165 years ago, Henry Christy changed our homes forever. In 1850, he returned from Constantinople with a sample of looped pile fabric and within a year the Christy family set upon the production of the towel we know today.
From that day in 1850 to this, Christy has been making homes more comfortable and after creating the best-quality towels for generations, we now make the finest bed linen too. Over the years, the world – and the way we live – has changed, and Christy has changed along with it. But from the very beginning, our mission has always been the same: to bring a touch of perfection to every household. Over 165 years later, we continue with the mission.
We create products that endure. In our Manchester studio, we merge traditional techniques with the finest yarns and the newest textile innovations. As each new collection takes shape, we collaborate with the world’s best weavers, cotton growers and fabric printers. Every step of the way, we test, refine and improve each product to make sure it’s as soft, durable and comfortable as it can possibly be.
At Christy, our mission is not simply to create the finest towels and bed linen; we want to be the leading lifestyle brand for home textiles and fabrics. This ambition comes straight from our Manchester heritage. When Christy began, we were part of the 19th Century revolution that made Britain’s home textiles prized the world over. Now is the perfect time to revive that tradition. To swap fleeting fashions for lasting quality. And to once again fill our lives – and our homes – with things we love, cherish and enjoy.
Imagine a place where you feel totally relaxed. Where dreaming becomes reality. And moments of joy happen every day. Imagine a home that always gives you a warm welcome. Where you feel safe, snug and special. And everything’s just the way you like it. Imagine being wrapped in softness. Sinking into a sanctuary for your senses. Surrounded by comfort. Imagine living a Christy life.
