About Us

From the beginning - snippets, facts, assorted things.





Founded by our Director Susan Waters in the early 1990's the start was small. A spare room, hard work, exciting and fun (with a few tears along the way).

Then the big bang - well a medium sized one anyway. An order for 4,000 velvet hats, needed for a beer festival within three weeks. 

The order was completed after working 18 hour days and the profit reinvested into new machines.

Today we have 30 machine heads, a loyal expert team, all based in our factory on the stunningly beautiful Rose Lane Farm.



 Our motto - Teamwork Makes the Dream Work!


We supply organisations of all sizes throughout the UK and world.

Perhaps because of this we grow, and new, fabulous customers continue to choose us as their supplier.




Ethics, Morals, Trustworthiness, Kindness.


Top of our list - all of the above.  The important things in life. 

We choose garments whenever we can which have ethical certifications.  Each product shows the certifications it has. We believe we are the only company who do this.

We love ethical trading and manufacture our own brand of clothing called "Cotton Roots".  We are a trail-blazer in the supply or Fairtrade certified garments.  We supply schools, companies and charities with Fairtrade certified uniform. 

Some of our well known customers are Eden Project, Salvation Army and Neal's Yard Remedies.  Please take a look at our sister site for more information about ethical trading.

Very pleased with the tax tabs, look really good on the uniforms. Very good service from receiving samples to ordering the uniform and receiving the finished product. Nothing was too much trouble. It’s been a pleasure. Thanks from everyone at BMAR.
