Global fashion supplier Simon Foster Sourcing has bought London-based jersey wear supplier Xavia Fashions Limited in a deal that will further strengthen its sourcing capabilities.

The enlarged group is now able to source jersey wear, knitwear, casual wovens and denim for men, women and children for major retailers worldwide

"We have been seeking the acquisition of a company within the field of jersey wear and casual wovens who compliment our vision and commitment to service and delivery," Foster said.

"It was clear from the outset of our discussions that Xavia Fashions provided this platform, and we look forward to integrating them into our team and developing all areas of the global supply brand to its full potential."

Simon Foster Sourcing has a technical, sourcing and design base both in the UK and in India, Bangladesh and the Far East, and a focus on fast fashion.
