HMS International Fabrics Corporation

Huddersfield Fine Worsteds is part of New York’s HMS International group. The Solomon family first began selling fine English fabrics from their Manhattan warehouse in the late 1930’s. Over the decades the family business continued to thrive and by the early 60’s brothers Herbert and Michael Solomon had taken the helm of their eponymous company, HMS. With a passion for Fabrics and an unrivalled knowledge of the business, Mickey Solomon continues as C.E.O and in 2009 added HFW to his now global HMS group of companies.
