The designs had been finalised, the fabric had been developed, woven & dyed, and the shirts had been, cut fitted and created; it was time for shipping.
22 days after the shirts had left the Hong Kong factory; a whole shipping container of Bespoke Textiles products arrived on the docks of Felixstowe.
A whole shipping container was filled with Bills shirts, filling a whole container with one product is not an easy feat for any dispatching company, so to have a container full to the brim with Bespoke Textiles products and great milestone for the company.
Before distribution, the boxes of product were sent to the warehouse, where they were stacked high on top of each other, Katie the co-director of Bespoke Textiles explains it was ‘quite a moment’ to see all of the hard work finally come together.
The moment that Bespoke Textiles, as well as Bill’s, had been waiting for was finally here, the distribution to all 70 sites around the country. There was a window of just one week to get all of the new uniform to the sites, and take the old ones to Textile Aid - this was to make sure nothing went to waste during the revamp of uniforms.
After a long 9 month journey, the work was done, the shirts were made, shipped and in the sites. The Bill’s staff loved their new uniforms, Katie and Kate the co-directors were over-joyed with the reception the shirts got, showing how their hard work really paid off and how the shirts really translated their manta of ‘service & style’.
