Made in the UK products are desirable by consumers who are increasingly appreciating the provenance of their garments and see the ‘Made in Britain’ label as a status symbol. It carries a large export appeal for our international clients.
Britain is no longer the “workshop of the world” but just because we do not manufacture products on the scale we once did, that does not mean the outlook for British manufacturing is poor. British manufacturing success these days is less about churning out large volumes. It is more about how we use our brains, skills and technology to make the more sophisticated products the world is demanding. It is clear that over recent years, consumer demand for exclusive British manufactured goods is on the rise and it is a pleasure to see our factories busy once more. We believe that localised production is not a passing trend. Companies of all sizes are looking to reduce their costs and carbon footprint, as well as cater to the increasing demand from customers looking to invest in high quality products with a compelling provenance and story.
Bridge & Stitch aims to change the perception of apparel manufacture as a viable and fulfilling career choice for young people. We want to work with the industry to invest in skills to ensure that British manufacturing has a vibrant future.
