Halcyon Blue was established 2005. Although we can make a wide range of basic clothing we specialise in working with stretch fabrics. We make simple swimwear (see below), dancewear, leggings men's underwear and simple activewear and athleisure.
Our current capacity is up to 2,000 garments per week. However, this does very much depends on the complexity of work at the time.
We have a range of industrial sewing machines including elasticators, overlockers, cover stitch (including top and bottom cover), flat seamer, bar tacks, flatbed lockstitches, zig zag (not 3 step) and binders.
Other machines include a band knife and a twin head trimming machine help us keep work flowing around the factory.
We use the Vetigraph CAD/CAM and lay marker system. This is compatible with Gerber, Lectra and most Optitex systems.
WHOLESALE - For Adults and Children
“Our designs are custom made specifically for your customers needs”
We set about creating an ever evolving continuity range of products that are not age or body type specific, that feel comfortable and secure but still look beautiful. During the design process products are rigorously tested to guarantee quality, durability and fit.
We make a range of products for leisure and serious sporting activities, which are available in 1,000’s of stunning print designs on a range of fabric bases.
Our designs can be made for you under our own brand or your own brand or company name.
CUT MAKE & TRIM (CMT)
Cut Make & Trim or CMT is the most common form of small scale manufacturing in the UK. It means you supply us with everything we need to make your garments, and we make them for you.
There are lots of pro’s to CMT production here in the UK:
- You have 100% control of the materials that go into your products
- You can be very involved in the process
- Communication is easier and quicker
- The manufacturing price is higher, but delivery costs are much lower, lead times shorter and there aren’t any import duties .
Of course there are some con’s and we are sorry we cannot make any lingerie, bras or any swimwear that has boning, underwire, lots of straps or padding or is bagged out.
We would consider 50 units a good small order for wholesale and CMT and generally ask for 5 of each colour/print, size and style.
