Manufacture by Sample Room 4 U

Sample Room 4 U, phannatiq, who made my clothes

If your garment says "Made in London" on the label, it was made here in Tottenham, by husband an wife duo Ali and Yuksel, just a couple of miles from our Walthamstow design studio.

They run a small set up about five minutes walk from Seven Sisters tube station, employing around four people. Ali does a lot of the cutting and making himself and Yuksel manages logistics, orders and the packaging.

Making our small orders, samples and pieces including the Ash tee, Corin and Jet sweaters and Oscar top locally makes sense because it minimises your "clothes miles" and we can oversee the process and quality control in person.

In addition to the fabrics, we send them samples which are used to inform them how to sew the garments. These are usually made from random fabrics and are just for reference.

A spec sheet like this one is also made to supplement the garment and provide any further information including amounts per size and colour. Patterns are digitised, graded (made in all the sizes) and printed onto card for us to take to them.

They then make a production sample for us to look at and approve. Sometimes it's perfect first time but sometimes we have to send it back with notes for improvement or some changes that have become necessary. 

The garments are sewn and pressed. Seams are inspected throughout the process. 

Finally they are packaged and we pick them up ready to be shipped to all corners of the world!
