Pipers Silks  
 

Pipers Silks was first established by Jack Piper over 30 years ago but is now run solely by his daughter Susan Peck who for many years worked alongside her father.  Jack was a re-knowned silk throwster who was responsible for the production of silk threads for weaving the silk used to make the wedding gowns of Princess Anne and Princess Diana. This small business is based in Suffolk which is the foremost area of silk production in the UK.

 

Our silk history reaches way back through many generations; our ancestors were silk velvet weavers in the old Spitalfields of London.  Susan was born and lived in the silk mill house of the local silk throwsters in Glemsford, Suffolk, where her father Jack, who had succeeded his father to become the manager, lived with his family having moved there at the age of 13!  Silk was indeed a family affair as Susan’s mother and grandmother were both silk weavers and her sister and extended family were all silk throwsters. 

 

From the early days, Pipers Silks has always offered a friendly, customer-focused service to ensure that they provide the right threads to produce excellent results that their many talented customers can treasure.

 

We provide our silk threads to meet customers’ exact requirements. We will supply to order and will provide the silks threads required to reproduce a design or pattern from the many publications that recommend the use of ‘Pipers Silks’. We also provide a colour matching service.

 

Our knowledge of silk is second to none and we are always happy to advise and answer queries from customers.

 

To provide customers the opportunity to see for themselves the extensive range of silks in full colour, we exhibit at the Annual Christmas Lacemakers’ Fair at Cranmore Park, in December each year.
