Community Solutions Launch New Textile Range ‘The Elmfield Hall Collection’

15th December 2022

Local charity Community Solutions North West have launched a new textile range to help the charity raise vital funds to support the work in the local area.

Taking inspiration from local entrepreneur Frederick Steiner & Co’s early furnishing fabrics. This stunning range of textile, home, and giftware make a statement in any home. The original textiles which inspired the designs date to c.1900-1910.

The textile range has been manufactured by Lantex, based in Accrington, and less than half a mile away from Elmfield Hall. Since 1918 Lantex has built a solid reputation in the manufacturing of bespoke textile products and piece goods.

Elmfield Hall (c.1853) in Gatty Park, Church, was originally the family home of the Gatty family. Prior to this, the area was known as Steiner Park. Both Frederick Steiner and Frederick Albert Gatty were originally from Alsace Lorraine (then France) and had come to Lancashire to work in the Turkey Red dyeing and printing industry.

Gatty had a small dyehouse built next to the hall, where it is believed he conducted some of his dye research. This has remained largely untouched and includes a well and a large dye pit.

The Elmfield Hall Collection is currently on sale at

Every purchase from the Elmfield Hall collection directly supports somebody in the local area.
