A NEW hub which aims to provide a supportive environment for new and growing creative, fashion and textile companies has been launched.

It is the result of a partnership between Leeds Beckett University and specialist Leeds textile company, AW Hainsworth.

The Creative, Fashion and Textile Hub was launched at an event at the historic Hainsworth Mill. AW Hainsworth’s company director Adam Hainsworth said: “We don’t know yet what is going to be created within the Hub, but I’m sure there will be some great synergies for us to help them in their new businesses and for them to contribute to ours.”
