Blog: UFKT plans Let's Make it Here re-launch

Katie Smith | 5 September 2013

The UK Fashion and Textile Association (UKFT) is to re-launch its database of UK apparel manufacturers in November.

Let's Make it Here, which profiles UK textile manufacturers, will feature extensive category listings including garments, accessories, fabric, footwear, yarn, components, ancillary equipment, and service providers.

The database is designed for companies who own production facilities in the UK and can manufacture for designers, brands and retailers to their own specifications  and their own label. 

Any firm who is seeking UK manufacturers will be able to use the database to search for companies who can supply services such as pattern cutting or grading for free.

An improved search functionality and a detailed google map search by UK postcode will also be featured on the revamped site, according to UKFT. 

"We think this improved resource is vital for the industry which is demanding more and more UK made products," UKFT said.
