Heathcoat Fabrics is globally recognised as the leading manufacturer and supplier of superior quality knitted apparel nets and tulles to a vast number of industries. As cutting-edge fabric technologists and manufacturers, we offer a superb collection of elegant tulles for the bridal, dancewear and prom markets. Our 1808® range covers virtually all requirements for the bridal trade and we are the first choice provider for many of the most respected names in the international bridal industry. Our dress nets are available in many weights and handles, and there is an expansive choice of tulles and meshes for petticoats, veiling, bridal accessories, embroidery, ribbons and decorations. We also offer a brilliant selection of colours and styles which includes sparkle and metallic Lurex.

Safety by design

For the upmost confidence and peace of mind, selected apparel fabrics are finished with Heathcoat Fabrics’ own unique Flare Free® treatment which reduces the flammability of fabrics, resulting in safer costume wear. The patented Flare Free® treatment conforms to the stringent EU Toy Safety Directive EN71 part 2:2011 and British Retail Consortium flammability recommendations for children's costume. A number of products have also been tested and certified to EN71 Part 3:2013, complying with Toy Safety Directive 2009/48/EC. To further protect the consumer, a selection of our fabrics are also available with Zero Formaldehyde, our special registered fabric treatment that reduces the risks of formaldehyde exposure to the skin.

Dance and Costume

To satisfy discerning creative designers, our costume and dance tulles and nets offer a multitude of refined textural finishes and an extensive range of over sixty exciting stock-supported colours; as well as the sparkle and metallic Lurex finishes. We also have a wide selection of tutu and carnival nets. All of our products are treated and colour-dyed to exacting control standards and we can also colour-match to the most precise customer requirements.
