The Workshop is a CMT factory that was created in 2007 to fill the industry need for a quality based, small production facility for national designers and retailers. The unit consists of some of the most experienced machinists and pattern cutters in the UK who operate on a wide cross section of machinery. Although we have a broad range of existing clientele including Jaeger, Asos.com and 80 other designers our staff is always open to working with new talent.
The Workshop’s services consist of patternmaking, toiling, first fit sampling and small production while also offering a grading service through GradeRite.

These prices are effective as of 30th December 2011.
All new clients must first meet with our factory manager to discuss their production needs. The initial hour long consultation fee is waived for all annual FashionCapital members however is £30 plus vat for non-members.
