Sewing Design for Sewed Fabric Products

Creating bespoke product ranges requires a variety of skills and expertise – at Paul Bristow, we have it all in-house, from design assistance to product production.

Our in-house sewing services mean that your next line of bespoke, custom made textile products are at the tips of your fingers, well, our fingers. It affords you, as the designer, are given complete freedom when it comes to your product design. It means you get variety within your product ranges, but perhaps most importantly, it gives you control.

To us ‘bespoke sewing’ means exactly that, giving you the options to change how a product is sewn, we will advise on the technique and give our industry knowledge but we are always happy to accommodate anything you need.

It is important to remember that we’re right on your doorstep. As a UK based company, both our warehouses and our factories are based at home, not overseas. And you might not think that this is of great consequence, but try telling that the retailers that import textile products from around Europe or China.

As we’re here in the UK, you won’t have to wait months and months for your products. There won’t be any hidden customs charges, or faffing around with the right importation paperwork, dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s, there’s none of that with us! Just give us your (or your customers) address and we’ll take care of the rest! There’ll be no surprise shipping fees, whether you want 10 products, or 10,000, we’re open and honest throughout!

That is what made in the UK should mean. It’s all about speed and service because if we’re being brutally honest, the quality of textiles within the industry is pretty high across the board. Although do remember that we’re the best at what we do!

If your international shipments arrive slightly defective or incorrect, with wrong stitching, sizes or colours, and at that point, you are in a bit of a pickle! Being located in the UK as we are, in the highly unlikely event that there is an issue with your order, we’re only round the corner! So resolving the issue is simple! Either courier your order back to us or bring it in and pop in for a chat, maybe even a cup of tea.

Our sewing and cutting department is made up of a mix of some of the finest hands in the industry, with years of experience, combined with state of the art digital cutting equipment. No matter what shape or size you want your product, our tight-knit are on hand to accommodate your needs! We even offer a pattern creation service, just as your dedicated account manager for more information.

The relationships we have forged in the industry may have started with our skills at printing, colour matching and product development, but they have lasted thanks to the fantastic quality of work that our sewing and cutting department complete each and every day.

Our team of account managers can’t thread a needle, but they don’t need to! Our sewing and cutting department work closely with all other departments when we’re creating your bespoke textile products, we all have an input and importantly, we’re a team, a family. Whether you need our sewing services or one of our other industry-leading service offerings, you’ll get the same level of expert advice feeding into your project to ensure it will be a success.

From bespoke t-shirts, totes bags or our range of home and kitchenware, our sewing services coupled with our dedicated team of experts will take your concept from an idea to the shop floor (whether it’s a virtual store or not), all from right here in the UK.
