Founded in 1980, we started off in a small office in Bradford, West Yorkshire, UK to supply woven labels to the brands and garment producers of the UK. We could see the potential for upgrading perceived garment values by converting the clothing trade from the use of printed name labels to the use of woven brand labels.
With passion and focus, it wasn’t too long before more staff were needed to try keep up with the customer requirements and Weavabel really began to grow. In 1985, hang tags were added to the range in order to complement the woven labels. Trims and packaging followed soon after.
By 1994, Weavabel relocated to Leeds – 10 minutes away and, in 2005, it was time for a purpose built, state of the art, warehouse and office in Yeadon (North of Leeds), UK. Operations in China, Turkey, India, Bangladesh and Hong Kong all followed later. Each location has been set up with the same drive and passion that meets the needs of fashion brands all over the world.
