A Time To Reflect | Hand Manufacturing + Technology

Our highly skilled manufacturing specialists learn on the job and we still use traditional craftsmanship techniques which have been passed through generations of the business.
Alongside the traditional sewing techniques, over the years we have introduced innovative technology to help make our products more efficiently and higher quality.

During the early 1990’s we purchased our first cutting table which was when we were still based at ‘The Old Ropey’ on Bents Road. This meant that we were able to electronically cut out the pattern pieces for some of our products and produce them more quickly, cutting down production time.

We now have two cutting tables at our new premises, alongside other pieces of equipment, like our high frequency welder which we use to create waterproof seams and allows us to make our larger covers for industry.
Take a look at some of our photographs to see our skilled specialists in action.

Just a reminder that we are now partially open and we can deal with your enquiries through email or phone. ⁠
