We have been supplying knitwear for corporatewear, workwear and uniform for thirty years. We work in association with knitwear manufacturer Charles Kirk & Co to offer stock and contract styles of pullovers, cardigans and other knitwear.

School knitwear

We have supplied high quality school knitwear for many years. We now work with UK knitwear manufacturer Charles Kirk & Co (following the closure of Balmoral Knitwear) both for stock school pullovers and cardigans, and for bespoke styles to match school colours. We also supply embroidered and printed polo shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies and jackets, plus hats and scarves in school colours.

Working with knitwear manufacturers for retail brands in eastern Europe, we can offer a really wide range of styles, often with minimum quantities of just 100 garments per style per colourway.
