Making the right choice shouldn’t be difficult.

We believe that making the right choice for textile merchandise should be easy.  We are expert water based ink printers, meaning plasticised inks shouldn’t be needed.  We also have organic, ethically sourced cotton options for all our products and apply the highest standard to our production. 

Textiles that don’t cost the Earth.

The best work with the best.

Textiles that don’t cost the Earth.

We are so much more than a printer and manufacturer of bespoke textile gifts. We are UK based designers, creators, makers and textile wizards who are passionate about what we do.

At Paul Bristow, we felt a strong responsibility to reduce our environmental impact by providing our customers with an ethical and sustainable printing.  We use GOTS approved water-based inks and have been doing so for 30 years, we were ahead of that curb!

The best work with the best.

Paul Bristow’s are proud to be extremely experienced, UK based and able to provide their customers with high quality organic textiles which don’t cost the earth.

We are nothing without our suppliers and we work closely with them make sure the products we produce for you meet the high standards required.  Listening and learning from their knowledge and trusting them to deliver for us.
