Made in Britain
When I started Under The Cloth I knew that I wanted to manufacture in Britain in small runs and not many people thought this was possible, but I happened to read about a Trade Show called 'Meet the Manufacturer' and signed up. Under The Cloth now has a London based manufacturer who makes short runs for us. There is a resurgence of designers choosing to manufacture in the UK, something which we are now proud to be a part of.
It's going to cost more to produce in the UK that is a fact, but we choose to do this because we want to support our manufacturing industry and build collaboration. We also know who made your clothes, that they are paid a fair wage and work in a safe environment. We can also stay in regular contact with our manufacturer and can keep an eye on the quality of the product because that's important to us. And clothes last longer and are better loved when they are made well.
