Find A UK Clothing Manufacturer

Looking for a UK Manufacturer? You’ve come to the right place!


  • Are you looking for a UK clothing manufacturer?
  • Want to find a British footwear factory?
  • Searching for somewhere in these isles to make your new handbag range?

I’m Kate Hills, the founder of Make it British, and I can help!

I know that finding a factory or supplier in the UK is never that easy. Some of the questions that I get asked all the time are:

  • “Why can I not find a UK clothing manufacturer on the internet?
  • “How do I know which factory makes what?”
  • “Where can I get advice on who I can trust?”

I want to see more and more businesses giving work to UK factories, that’s part of the reason that I set up Make it British. I know all of the best places to go, and I want to make sure you do too. I have helped connect hundreds of designers, buyers and retailers with quality UK clothing, textile and handbag manufacturers over the past five years, and I would be delighted to help you as well.
