As the autumn shows come around, it seemed timely to remind designers and makers of the Meet The Manufacturer event which took place earlier in the year.
I worked in fashion textiles in a previous life so was intrigued to see the comprehensive selection of companies based in the UK specialising in different skills. Take, for example, London-based screen and digital printers Insley & Nash who work with short lengths for niche designers
and I’ve already written about another UK manufacturer The Deep Print Movement in an earlier post.
Although I’m no longer in the commercial manufacturing textile world any industry benefits from sourcing locally, particularly for specialist skills, so visit the website to see who else makes in the UK. The good news is that there will be another Meet The Manufacturer show next year: I received the notification last week.
