Hield's primary business is in weaving fine suit fabrics. Hield is not a fabric merchant like Dormeuil, Scabal, H. Lesser, John G. Hardy or Harrisons of Edinburgh. Scabal owns the British weaver Bower & Roebuck, and John G. Hardy is part of the same group as the weaver Huddersfield Fine Worsteds. Hield, along with Moxon, is under Gamma Beta Holdings, which is controlled by the Chamsi-Pasha family. Only fairly recently did Hield enter the finished clothing business.
