UK manufacturing

UKFT is a passionate champion of UK manufacturing and we work with UK manufacturers of fashion and textiles in many ways.

If you are a fashion brand looking to explore UK production, we have a free-to-use database of UK manufacturers of fashion and textiles called Let’s Make It Here.

On the site, there are also a series of resources to help you get the most from working with a UK manufacturer, such as a Tech Pack Template and Garment Making Checklist. View the Resources here.

Manufacturers: Make the most of your membership

We work with our manufacturing members from central London to rural Scotland, running projects to support growth and innovation, promoting and matchmaking businesses and ensuring that the next generation of skilled people entering the sector are being trained to the highest level. Find out more here and here are a few highlights:

 

 

  • In 2020 we launched British Textile Week to showcase the craftsmanship, creativity and technical skills of the UK textile industry

 

  • We also launched Sew Connect – to share vacancies in sewing, textile and garment production

Skills and training

Do you want to hire an apprentice or find the right training for your business? We can help simplify documentation, cut down on red tape and facilitate links with sector training providers.

For manufacturers, we have developed a new training course for sewing machine leaders and we have secured funding for young textile technician training.

There are many sources of funding available to support businesses across the fashion and textile sector to train a skilled workforce. We can help you navigate the support available.
