Brand showcase: Heathcoat


Heathcoat’s safety-optimised fabrics ensure no compromise for beautiful occasionwear.

It is the evening of the prom. Everything is perfect. Her hair, stunning. Her make-up, flawless. Her dress, radiant. She knows she will be turning heads and making her mark.

But if you aren’t 100% confident in the safety of your fabrics, your creation could be leaving a lasting impression for all the wrong reasons. Candles, naked flames and even fireworks are a huge part of any celebration or performance, which is why the safety of prom, costume and bridal dress materials is essential.

Heathcoat 1808® dress net, tulle and costume fabrics are independently tested to conform to EN71 part 2 regulations and are the only brand to use Flare Free® technology, providing peace of mind that the materials used are safe for customers.

1808® fabrics have been delighting party-goers and brides for generations with their exquisite feel and exceptional appearance, all the while unaware that their dress uses safe, flame-retardant material.

And that’s exactly how it should be: customers shouldn’t have to enquire if their dress is safe to wear – it should be absolutely obligatory.

However, this confidence does not need to compromise style or elegance. 1808® products can be colour-matched to an exact shade or are immediately available in 54 stock and seasonal colours, using Azo-free dyes. Bespoke manufacturing means that fabrics can be created in a variety of weights, colours, handles and finishes, whether it’s for veiling, accessories, ribbons, embroidery or lingerie. 1808® materials are also readily available in tight turnarounds. A dedicated sample room enables same-day requests for samples, while extensive stock support means that wholesalers and purchasers do not need to carry surplus amounts of stock.

So, with bespoke creations, low minimal orders, outstanding quality and, most importantly, exceptional safety standards, the question isn’t why aren’t you using 1808® already, but can you afford not to?
