About us

Duncan Stewart Textiles is a family run business helping to make those special occasions extra special through personalised embroidered gifts. Based in leafy West Sussex, Duncan Stewart Textiles first established themselves to become one of the UK’s leading suppliers of wholesale premium textiles. Over the last two decades the business has evolved to bring premium textiles direct to consumers.

Specialising in embroidered towels, bags, and bathrobes; we aim to design, manufacture and supply bespoke, sentimental items that cannot be found on the high street. In addition to our gift range, we also manufacture and supply multi-national companies, sports clubs, top London hotels and salons with bespoke promotional textile items.

Set up by Duncan Stewart in 1978 with his two sons, Andrew and Fraser, Duncan Stewart Textiles was established in their family home in West Worthing, selling textiles to local businesses from adverts in the local newspaper. Since then, the company are now based in a warehouse in Worthing, continuing to grow whilst sticking close to its roots. With a specially selected & highly skilled team working behind the scenes, Andrew and Fraser are proud to continue their dad’s legacy and continue to remain true to their core values; producing high quality products at a competitive price and providing high quality customer service.
