How to Use
Fabric marking or ‘Tailors Chalk’ is used by tailors and upholsterers to mark out lines on garments, ready for cutting. After the cut has been made the chalk is then removed with a stiff brush. Marking should be done on the reverse side of materials, but if this is not possible, test on a waste piece of the same material to ensure that the mark can be removed.
H Webber was founded in 1902 by Harry Webber, Silk Merchant of the City of London. The company has since been trading as a family business, now in its fourth generation. They are suppliers of tailoring and upholstery tools for trade; we use these products in our factory. They supply our chalk tools for retail also, however Hancock’s are the manufacturer of them.
The family business of Timothy & Sandwith was established in 1867, but in 1924 they purchased their rivals H Hancock’s and transported their base to Bracknell. Since then they have been producing quality chalk tools for industrial purposes.
