designs that set the trend

Together with a strong academic foundation, our vibrant in house design team, has a broad knowledge of the practicalities of manufacturing and make up. Consequently we are able to create our own designs, develop customer's designs and work with our customers to make appealing products which are practical to produce and commercially successful.

Using the latest Shima Seiki and Stoll design technology enables us to offer very efficient turnaround times. This in conjunction with our expertise in utilising the best yarns, from natural fibre compositions to bespoke mixtures, and a wide variety of trims and finishings means that we can deliver great products at great prices.

And this is what, we believe, helps us to continue our passion for designing affordable, stylish knitwear that sets the trend.
