Leading manufacturers of bespoke, retail-ready garments.
7active have extensive experience creating retail ranges from scratch, managing the whole project from initial idea to delivery. We work closely with retailers and brands creating collections and special products for retail.
We’re able to bespoke design your retail project from the ground up.
Our experienced team have worked with some of the UK’s biggest retailers on collaborations for seasonal retail lines, establishing a strong relationship and a key partnership for both parties.
By offering a full service, from trend analysis, design & tech packs, through sampling, production & logistics, we aim to take the stress away from the client by handling every stage of the order process.
Many of our clients comment that despite having a strong apparel offering, they do not need to employ a dedicated department to design and source garments as this is handles by 7active. All we need you to do it sign off designs, lab dips and samples!
CASE STUDY 1:
We’ve worked closely with a well-known national retailer that specialises in retail cycle wear.
7active have worked with them for years creating both their premium cycle wear and entry level offering. Both ranges presented different challenges and objectives, with the need to be of high quality whilst hitting two separate price points.
From the start, we designed to specific budgets for these brands, suggesting the most cost-effective fabric, decoration techniques and trims to ensure the products sit comfortably within the scope of their budget.
All garments manufactured within this project are bagged, tagged and barcoded so they’re ready for consumers.
Bespoke garments on this occasion include cycle jerseys, leggings and bib shorts, jackets and gloves, and we continue to enjoy a healthy partnership with this client.
CASE STUDY 2:
Ethical sportswear for a premium sportswear brand.
The client came to 7active after experiencing high costs associated with using design agents and European manufacturing. We were able to offer him a cost-effective full service that included his design, product development, tech packs, manufacturing, QC and logistics.
The USP of the brand is ethical sportswear, therefore we have created totally unique performance materials made from recycled plastic bottles.
This includes double sided two-tone breathable polyester for tech tees, vests and polos, as well as woven and jersey materials for shorts.
In development are recycled polyester stretch materials for leggings and sports bras as well as rip-stops and poly-cotton blends for jackets and slim-fit joggers as the brand diversifies into athleisure ranges.
