Heal Fabrics Ltd., London, was founded in 1941 as a subsidiary of the long-established firm Heal & Son and was originally known as Heal's Wholsesale and Export Ltd.. After the Second World War the company began to specialize in furnishing fabrics and in 1958 changed its name to Heal Fabrics. Under the visionary direction of Tom Worthington (1948-1971) the company secured a worldwide reputation for issuing well-designed contemporary fabrics.
