#BuyBritishMadeClothes

This article on British made clothes is very comprehensive – please give it a few seconds to load. You may wish to use ‘find on page’ to help you look for something in particular.

I sense a revival of British clothes manufacturing. Much has gone, but there is still a fantastic choice of British made clothes out there, whether you want to spend a lot or not very much money.

Here you can find links and information, in no particular order, about British made clothes, for men, women and children. This article is ongoing and I will add to it when I discover more British clothes manufacturers and suppliers. Only companies that actually make or supply clothes made in the UK will be featured here, not simply companies that used to make clothes in the UK or are just selling clothes in the UK. The products I list here are genuinely made in the UK, not simply labelled to imply British heritage or manufacture.

I’ve not been able to find UK made cotton wool balls, cotton wool pads or cotton buds in any of the major supermarkets for ages. Salvation is at hand though in the form of Robinson Healthcare.

Most Robinson Healthcare products are produced in their factory in Worksop, Nottinghamshire.

Robinson Healthcare’s “Cottontails” and “Soft and Pure” ranges of cotton wool is made in the UK. The range includes:

  • Cotton Pads
  • Cotton Wool Balls
  • Cotton Wool Pleat and Roll

Available in local chemists, at Amazon and elsewhere online, via the Robinson Healthcare Telephone Mail Order Service and via their website (in bulk).

No more buying cotton buds made in Greece or wherever from Tesco’s or Waitrose. Will now be buying English made cotton buds 🙂

Silver Cross currently manufactures two models of full-size coach-built pram in the UK, the Balmoral and the Kensington, as well as two models of dolls pram, the Oberon and the Chatsworth. Silver Cross is the only pram manufacturer still producing coach-built prams in the UK (source Wikipedia). The Silver Cross website confirms this giving some country of origin information about these models; for example describing the Kensington pram as “Still hand made and hand finished in Yorkshire by skilled craftsmen…” They are rather more coy about where their other products are manufactured and of course this means they are foreign made – http://www.silvercrossbaby.com
