The annual Schoolwear Association Awards is a platform to celebrate the Schoolwear sector. Businesses are recognized for their hard work and high standards.
We are delighted to announce that we have been titled ‘Best Schoolwear Supplier 2018’. Due to our dedicated support of independent retailers, and our forward-thinking approach. This is a fantastic achievement for our thriving business.
Our Managing Director, Kathryn Shuttleworth had this to say:
“We have always been committed to operating above and beyond industry expectations. Winning Best Schoolwear Supplier is a huge honor and reflects the dedication of our team. Whilst celebrating the core values we hold as a business when it comes to the integrity of our service and our support of independent retailers.”
Over the years we have built strong relationships with our retailers. With a rich heritage to draw upon, the name David Luke is synonymous with honesty and innovation.
We achieved an industry-first, when launching our ‘Eco Uniform’ range in 2012. Eventually becoming a category leader in creating school uniforms made from recycled plastic.
In 2016, one of our two founders, David’s, daughter Kathryn, took over as our Managing Director. Therefore marking a new chapter in our ambition which has seen expansion into China. We all are looking ahead to 2019, ready for the predicted changes within the industry.
We would like to thank the Schoolwear Association for recognizing our efforts and to the retailers for their dedication to our business.
Using recycled plastic bottles to make the Eco-fabric for the blazers is a fantastic way to demonstrate to children how products can go on to become something entirely different through the process of recycling. Students are proud to wear their uniforms.Headteacher, Newport Free Grammar School
