People and Community

Our people make us the business we are today.

We operate to the highest legal and ethical standards with all our stakeholders and support wide-ranging good causes.



Our actions have been designed to make us an attractive employer, provide opportunities for personal development, improve health and well-being, and provide safe, comfortable and inspiring workplaces.


Our objective is to set the standard for design, manufacturing and sustainability in our chosen markets, by inspiring customer success, making the best product, and building a company we are proud of.

Investing in people


Every one of our 650 strong workforce has an active role to play in the successful delivery of our sustainability actions, so we work hard to embed sustainability into our company culture and daily behaviors. 


It begins right at the recruitment and selection phase, through comprehensive induction, performance development and training, and wide ranging internal communications activities to ensure motivation and engagement.

Sustainability Steering Committee


We have a Sustainability Steering Committee responsible for defining and delivering our sustainable development aims and principles, actively supported by our Board of Directors. 

Our CEO, Alan Williams sits on the Board of our main industry body UKFT (UK Fashion and Textiles), is on the Board of the North of England’s Textile Centre of Excellence, and is an active member of the Furniture Makers Company, all of which influence the broader development of the sustainability agenda in textiles and furniture.

Commercial Director Anthony Croall is on the Regional Advisory Board of Make UK and represents Camira on the UK government funded project ACT UK (Automatic Sorting for Circular Textiles Demonstrator).

Doing the right thing


Community matters to Camira, so we actively support good causes, both locally and internationally. From teaming up with large charitable organizations to supporting smaller scale charity projects local to our places of work, we’ve seen the difference that investing in our community really makes. Over the years, we’ve aligned some of our best selling products to international charities through give-back donation programs for every yard sold.



Our wool felt Blazer fabric supported the New Zealand Whale and Dolphin Foundation, recognizing the New Zealand origin of the fabric and the endangered Hector’s Dolphin; our icon Titus and Tangled fabrics, by Emma Shipley, helped support the Gorilla Organisation, promoting gorilla conservation in Africa; and our Synergy fabrics made a difference to providing safe, clean water through the international water charity Just a Drop. Closer to home, our nominated UK charities are the Kirkwood and Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, while in North America we support Habitat for Humanity and United Way.
