About bbrown

It all began in 1934 with a man called Bernard Brown, hessian cloth & and a barrow in London town.

Today hessian is still one of our fabric ranges. We developed from selling off a barrow on the cobbled streets in the City of London to a small, but successful store in Greville Street. The company subsequently moved from London and bbrown developed into a successful sales and distribution business from offices and a warehouse in Hemel Hempstead. The group offices are still in Hemel Hempstead and since January 2019 the bbrown warehouse was consolidated in Kent and our customer reach continues to expand from local markets to an ever growing global market.

We supply flame retardant display materials to the retail, shopfit, education, leisure interiors plus TV staging and film production markets. With over 400 stocked products, glitter fabric, 3D illusion film, PVCs, 3D tiles, suede, felt and other natural display materials.
