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
Innovation in product development is at the heart of our business. Inspired by market trends, our new launches for 2019 will make it easy for schools, parents and pupils to embrace change in a modern, wearable way.
As schools’ demand for stylish & unique styles continues to grow, our new ‘Inverted pleat skirt’ is the perfect solution. A brand new addition to our eco range, our skirt offers a contemporary and individual style from stock. Our skirts come in a range of styles and lengths catering to school requirements and what style conscious girls want.
“2018 has been a great year for customer feedback. We love hearing from our independent retailers as it gives us a direction and a focus point of where to take product development to deliver the best results. This has been especially useful in our pleated skirts collection where we’ve endeavoured to bring something new to the market, the ‘Inverted Check Pleat Skirt. The inverted pleat is a fantastic way of introducing colour and pattern into the uniform market. As the check pattern is only seen in the inverted pleat it gives a bespoke, high end look for schools who would like to introduce house colours in a subtle way.” -Jenifer Nairne Product Development Manager
This new style is a great alternative to the traditional gingham summer dress. In a super soft touch cotton jersey fabric it gives parents a more comfortable junior summer uniform option.
Our Bermuda shorts in a straighter fit complement the senior girls city short, providing a complete uniform offer which gives senior boys a smart, cooler option in the summer months.
Our City Short offer schools a solution to cover many of the current issues they face. From rising UK temperatures to gender-neutral requirements, the stylish shaped fit shorts offer the perfect solution.
“It’s been a roller coaster of a year, with challenges and excitement. The growth and opportunities in schoolwear have been fantastic. We’ve been delighted with how our skirt, trouser and blazer ranges have continued to go from strength to strength. With the depth we can offer along with the support we continue to give independent retailers, we are becoming first choice for many.” – Kathryn Shuttleworth, Managing Director, David Luke Schoolwear
We are delighted with this new eco-initiative. The quality of the uniform is excellent – you would never guess the material is made from recycled plastic and the added bonus is that it’s more hard wearing and colourfast than ordinary material.Headteacher, Falconers Hill Infant School
