Fabrics and Production

At Lavender Hill Clothing we only use the best factories in Europe and take the greatest care in sourcing and manufacturing our goods and want you to know where everything comes from.

By carefully sourcing our raw materials and manufacturing all of our products ourselves, we are able to take great care in ensuring only the best quality for our customers. We require complete transparency with regards to where our raw materials come from, and we monitor our supply chain closely for quality control, which is paramount to our business ideology.

Please take a moment to click on the images above to look through the different processes of manufacturing our t-shirts and scarves.

(1) The Fabric Factory:

Our fabric is knitted specifically for us.

Location: Austria                Established: 1907

About the Factory: A leading specialist in knitted fabrics, the factory is renowned for producing an exceptional quality of goods and for its environmental focus.

About the raw material: Using Lenzing Modal® and cotton yarns our knitter combines the two fibres to produce our super soft cotton and modal blend. More information...

About the construction process: In order to make the fabric, over 100 yarn spools are placed on the knitting machine which can take over three hours to thread. The yarns are passed through two sets of needles that loops and combines the yarns together to make the fabric. The fabric is knitted in the cylindrical method and then cut, dyed (we use only the most environmentally friendly dyes available), washed and dried before passing through the final quality control check.

(2) The Garment Manufacturer:
.
Location: Leicestershire, England
.
Established: 1977
.
About the factory: A third generation family run and owned business. With over 35 years' experience manufacturing in England. They strive to bring greater manufacturing opportunities to the local communities and abide by the ETI Base Code, an internationally recognized code of labour practice.
.
About the construction process: The patterns for our t-shirts are hand drawn by a highly experienced and specialised pattern cutter. Once the fabric has been laid out on the cutting table, the patterns are carefully positioned and cut out by hand. The fabric pieces are then passed to the machinists who sew them together, starting with the sides together with a care label and then the sleeves. The collars are neatly pressed and sewn into the neckline of the t-shirts and the lavender trim is then stitched to the neckline with our Lavender Hill Clothing label. Finally the finished t-shirt is pressed, packed and ready to be sent out to you.
