Headen & Quarmby Ltd. was established in 1935 in Middleton on the outskirts of Manchester by Mary Headen & Eric Quarmby as a manufacturer of premier sleepwear & intimate apparel.
The factory was once a key employer of 60 local skilled seamstresses, cutters, designers pattern makers, pressers and packers. The full process taking place in one location.
Mary and Eric later married and the company, three generations later, remains a family run business, still lovingly making the same for the UK market.
Our Experienced & dedicated creative team use up to the minute computer aided design software to create garments that are not only original in style, but also in fabric design.
We listen to and understand the needs of our customers, from the initial brief, through to the development of cads, mood boards, the sourcing of new fabrics and then the sampling of the actual garments.
To ensure we deliver the most up to date and innovative product design, inspiration is taken from the catwalk, trend exhibitions and global retail markets.
The core philosophy at Headen & Quarmby since its foundation, has always been to design, fit & manufacture garments to the highest possible standards.
This is something we will always continue to take pride in and as fabric innovation has moved forward so has the depth of our product range.
There are and have been many remarkable advances in textile production over the years, some with truly incredible applications, which hopefully make life just that little more comfortable and we’re very proud to be associated with this.
However as technology plays an essential & important role in keeping up with todays demanding market place, the basic principles behind our business still remain as they’ve always been & are never compromised.
Quality garments that feel and fit better than anything else on the market will always have a place and is something that we hope, will never go out of fashion.
