Customer Testimonials

"What a pleasure it will be to order from a company which obviously cares"

I want to take a moment to extend my sincere thanks for the outstanding service I recently received from your company.  I ordered and received three meters of liner fabric to test in the men's hats I custom make.  I am quite impressed with the quality of these goods and will definitely reorder.
Further to this, along with my order I requested a few swatches.  Not only did you send these swatches, you sent additional fabric cards, swatches and a fabric book. I cannot say enough how much your consideration means to me.  What a pleasure it will be to order from a company which obviously cares.

"The quality of everything is extraordinary"

I am delighted to be able to access the finest quality trimmings and accessories. My orders are tiny yet the service is fantastic. Working with companies like yourselves adds greatly to my individual bespoke commission garments. The quality of everything is extraordinary. I look forward to working with The Lining Company.

"I would highly recommended your company to my friends and family"

I would just like to say how pleased I am with the service I've received! I have ordered lining for my final collection twice and both times the items have arrived super quick which is amazing as I am a fashion student and needed the lining as soon as possible. The staff, both on the phone and via email, have responded so quickly and answered all of my questions. I would highly recommended your company to any of my friends and family. Thanks again.

"What wonderful service!"

What wonderful service! My order was acknowledged straight away, I was informed about dispatch, and my fabric arrived the next day. My lining arrived well packaged, in perfect condition, and most importantly is beautiful and good quality. A true pleasure. I am converted.

"I'm so glad to have discovered your company - great quality and fast shipping."

I just received my order and am so pleased! The Cupro Jacquard lining fabric is just gorgeous--superb quality! I recently purchased some Harris Tweed while on holiday and will use the thistle jacquard lining fabric for some simple vests for Christmas gifts. It's so difficult to find quality fabrics in the US. I'm so glad to have discovered your company. Great quality and fast shipping.

"It is rare these days to have the level of customer service you have shown"

It is rare these days to have the level of customer service you have shown, your patience and brand knowledge has been an incredible support. The lining material you provided is a perfect match, better than I could have hoped for. Thank you!

"I cannot recommend highly enough"

I had a wonderful experience ordering from Bernstein & Banleys. I am located in the US and was hoping to order a few buttons for a project I'm working on. The team was very responsive over email and worked hard to make sure that I got the best deal on shipping possible, since that was my main concern about ordering such a small set of items from farther away. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thanks everyone!

"I would not consider using an alternative supplier"

Having been a professional self-employed creative dressmaker, for more than three decades, with a substantive repeat business established clientele, I have used Bernstein & Banleys/The Lining Company for a number of years. They have always been efficient, courteous and ensure that I receive my deliveries within 24/48 hours of ordering. I can honestly say that I would not consider using an alternative supplier.
