FABRIC/ TRIMS SOURCING
We have a wide range of fabrics that our customers select. Our fabric are sourced mainly from Europe and the UK. At Clothing manufacturers UK, we prefer sourcing our fabrics from the UK where possible to support our UK fabric suppliers who mill their fabric here in the UK. Which is great for brands who are concerned with sustainability and being ethical. However it tends to be only jersey fabrics that are milled in the UK, it's more rare for woven fabrics to be milled in the UK.
Most of our fabrics that we source from the UK is usually sustainable.
Some of the sustainable fabrics that we can source for you is (depending if its woven or jerseys fabric you are looking for):
Recycled yarns such as recycled polyester
In house we have a fabric library that our customers can come in and have a look at and feel the fabric samples and pair them to other samples we have.
Many of our clients have a focus on creating sustainable garments. Therefore we have moved our focus on sourcing more sustainable fabrics for them. There is a lot of focus on being ethical, eco friendly and being green. Being sustainable adds value to the finished garments.
One of the best ways to make sustainable garments is using sustainable materials. Synthetic fabrics isn't sustainable such as polyester. However using recycled polyester is a better option. It's important to be sustainable as there is so much textiles filling up our landfills and polluting our earth.
