Haddow Overseas Office and Sourcing Routes

Over many years we have established strong trading relationships with factories in many different countries providing overseas sourcing routes which can meet the objectives of our customers. This enables us to design and manufacture products for a broad spectrum of customers across many different product areas including swimwear, active and nightwear, as well as lingerie, and home interior products too.

Our team in the UK and overseas can source a range of fabrics and products from a variety of mills ensuring we keep up to date on the latest fabrics from a variety of sources, and across a range of quality and price points. This allows us to find the ideal manufacturing solutions for our customers.

We are proud that we and our partner factories hold all the appropriate internal and external audit accreditations, for the processes and standards required.

Multiple Sourcing and Manufacturing Routes

We have worked hard to establish and maintain overseas sourcing routes in China, India, Cambodia, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka, emphasizing garments of a quality to suit our clients’ expectations and budgets, plus sustainability through planet-conscious product development and community-building efforts.
