Made in Britain
The birthplace of knitting and the textile industry Great Britain has a lot to be proud of. However, in recent decades the decline in such an industry is clear to see, with more and more cheap imports saturating the British market. Yet, since the recession, the tide seems to have turned, with consumers and retailers now turning to more quality based products, better economical solutions and most importantly, having the desire to support British business.
We have seen our knitwear Industry decimated by cheap imports from the Far East. Just think….nearly every big retail chain on the High street and every supermarket that sell clothes is offering knitwear costing just a few pounds…..the major percentage of the price goes to the retailer…the garments have to be sent halfway across the world….tax and duty has to be paid….the raw materials have to be purchased ….. What is left for the person who makes the garment?
Therefore, the demand for great British design, British based companies and high quality products has never been higher and so, Sweateronline brings you wonderful, elegant clothing manufactured and designed in the UK from businesses across the British Isles.
