Dormeuil Tailoring Fabric​

Dormeuil (pron. Dor-May) is a French textile company founded in 1842 by 22-year-old Jules Dormeuil.

Dormeuil began with importing English fabrics to France. By 1862 its headquarters were established at 4 rue Vivienne in Paris. The first shop outside France was located at 10 New Burlington Street in London. Dominic Dormeuil is the current President.

During its 170 years of history, Dormeuil has been producing the finest fabrics on the planet, blending timeless British elegance with a touch of French chic. With an undoubtedly reputation, Dormeuil is the choice of kings, presidents, Hollywood stars and connoisseurs from all over the world.

During the pandemic, Fielding & Nicholson was chosen as the pivotal tailor to occupy The House of Dormeuil. We are now in our second year of residence at the showroom and look forward to many more.

Claims to fame

Dormeuil is well-known for its luxurious fabrics for suiting, high-quality cashmere, silk, and merino wool. It’s one of the few brands whose history can be known from its origins to the present day.

They can be tracked down through renowned, innovative creations, starting from 1922, when the mill launched the first cloth Sportex to have a woven selvage. The cloth, designed to give warmth without restricting movement, became a must for outdoor sportspeople all over Europe.

Thanks to this fabric's sweeping success, the company expanded further, moving its headquarters to Regent Street in London’s West End, the world’s epicentre of textile retail. In more recent years, movies such as the Kingsman series used Dormeuil fabrics on their production set.


Creating Dormeuil's fabrics is considered one part art, science, and part nature. Following these pillars, Dormeuil feeds on the outstanding quality of carefully selected raw materials, expertise gained over years of tradition, and the aid of a factor crucial to innovation and improvement - modern technology.

The noble fibres harvested for Dormeuil cloths are as diverse as the rare animals they come from, sometimes so rare they are only found in the most secluded corners of the world. The production of Dormeuil fabrics hinges on technology and the ability to use the latest trends to introduce new factors to improve the performance of fabrics, keeping the wearer comfortable in different environments.

Finally, a touch of sophistication is added by the flair of the company’s design team based in Paris.
