Hi everyone,

It’s nice to be part of this community. I am looking to source organic/fair-trade wholesale ready to print T-shirts in various colours. I was wondering if anyone can recommend any suppliers in the UK. Initially I am looking at a small quantity, and have got various samples from suppliers such as Continental Clothing, and Rapanui Clothing, but was not happy with their cut and fit.

Thank you for your time, Best Paz

Hey Paz,

I have a wonderful supplier if you are still looking. What quantity do you need? Get in touch. 

Hello Nyakio,

I just searched on the network for fair trade/wholesale t-shirts suplliers in the UK as well and saw your reply to Paz.

I'm just starting a little t-shirt line and am looking for a minimum of 10 but max of around 100 t-shirts.

Does your supplier do that?

Many Thanks!!!

Stefanie

Manchester Hosiery - http://www.palmunderwear.co.uk - make three styles of mens' short sleeve T-shirt.

  • Style 850 "ecru natural wool style" - I didn't ask the price.
  • Style 259 Cotton/viscose (right) is £5.10 - £5.50 x 12 per size. They're sent in single size 12-packs with the large sizes slightly more expensive.
  • Style 500 Thermal viscose (below) is £3.80 - £4.60 x 12 per size. Delivery is free on orders over £350.

You don't have to  buy the full 12-pack in every size. The web site lists wholesalers including M Holt of Manchester who can split an order betweeen different sizes. M Holt's minimum for free delivery is about the same but if you're passing Manchester they do a cash-and-carry I think.

 

I don't know the minimum order for a new product made out of the customer's fabric.

 

One problem is persuading people that a viscose T-shirt made in the UK is more interesting in an ethical way than one made of say un-bleached cotton in China. I think it is but have trouble persuading people. Some people don't realise that exchange rates were rigged against UK manufactureres for three decades and that has weakened them a bit. For the same reason, there isn't much flexibility about colour and fit. The factory doesn't dye on site and would need a customer who is easy to work with if they were do do anything different to the styles in their catalogue - probably a large customer.

Another problem is price but if the market is competing with branded printed T shirts then it could be OK. The wholesaler is selling slightly cheaper than the factory at the moment., minimum order £100, £6.50 delivery or cash-and-carry.
