Berisfords began back in 1858, with Charles Berisford and his brothers Francis and William.
"The John Clowes book "Ribbons and Bows" recalls that Charles was only 28 when he founded the company, but his association with the textile industry started at the tender age of nine. Working in a mill, he was so small he had to stand on a stool to reach his bench."
Today Berisfords manufacturers ribbons and trims in their Mill in Cheshire. Their ribbons and trims are sold in haberdashery and craft shops up and down the country and can also be found on many online stores like Amazon, Ebay and Etsy.
I particularly like their printed ribbons...
