Women’s and Ladies Clothing Manufacturer UK

Karpelle was established in 1986, we are a leading UK ladies clothing manufacturer. Our main activities are focused on the manufacture and supply of high quality ladies wear, to the better end of the retail market in the UK. This includes coats, jackets, trousers, skirts, dresses and blouses (structured and unstructured).

The origins of the company are based on third generation ladies clothing manufacturing within our own UK factories. In order to remain flexible, in 1991 we began to manufacture clothing in Eastern Europe, where it was possible to tap into a wealth of opportunities. Building on the success of this, 95% of Karpelle’s production is now in Romania and Macedonia, complimented with 5% in Asia. We are able to provide our service from any point i.e. full design and supply, or manufacture to our customers’ own clothing designs.

As a leading ladies clothing manufacturer our activities are supported by our headquarters in the U.K. (Manchester) which consists of 7500 sq. ft. with the following resources:
