An event, organised by Make it British, the campaign for UK manufacturing, welcomed kilt makers, knitwear and hosiery manufacturers and lace weavers, and some of the most established clothing manufacturers from all corners of the UK.
The communication platform, which now takes place annually, aims to bring together British manufacturers with buyers and designers looking to have their products made in Britain, reinforcing optimism in UK manufacturing, something that Genevieve Sweeney, an advocate for British manufacturers, has adopted in her own knitwear brand.
Premium British brand
Genevieve Sweeney is a British brand, determined to ensure its authenticity by showcasing artisan skills and the rich heritage found within the British knitwear industry. As an advocate for British manufacturers, Genevieve Sweeney aims to demonstrate her commitment to inspire and reinvigorate the British textile industry.
Genevieve Sweeney fuses contemporary design with traditional techniques, using unique yarns and innovative colour blends. The label started recently with a collection for both menswear and womenswear, bringing together an exciting collaboration of silhouettes and key seasonal pieces. The goal is to offer luxurious knitwear products that allow each customer to have an exclusive insight into the story behind the product and learn where it was made and what materials were used.
