We are the UK’s leading headwear supplier, supplying quality products to leading global retailers and brands. Established in 1947, we have over 75 years of innovation and expertise within headwear manufacturing on both woven and knitted styles.
We can supply decorated stocked styles in around 2-3 weeks from a minimum order of just 50 units. All decorations are carried out in house, on site in our factory in Braintree. Our stock styles are a great way to trial new styles, colours or concepts as commitment is low and delivery can be in as little as 2 weeks from pre-production sign off. Repeat orders can therefore be delivered quickly so you can react to current market trends but ensuring commitment on stock is kept to a minimum.
Our full Made to Order service can be delivered within a 10-week lead time. With our extended teams in China, we can also produce designs to your exact specifications, allowing a fully individual and custom product. Minimums start from just 144 units on made to order caps and 250 units on made to order beanies. If you need assistance in putting your design together, we offer a free of charge CAD service, we will need to be sent a full design specification and artwork files to put your design together.
The extensive range of services that SL Black Label provides is a key reason why we stand out from the competition. Quality and service levels are two of the most important strengths of our business. You can expect a dedicated Account Manager to work with, providing advice and a point of contact throughout the entire process, from initial CAD development through to sampling and delivery. SL Black Label’s in-house Quality Control department generates consistency and quality throughout the production process, ensuring only hats of a commercially acceptable quality are delivered to represent your brand.
Our extended teams in China continue our ethos and uphold the same core values, providing an extension to our global footprint and our passion. The mission of our entire team is to provide the best quality headwear, with the up most attention to detail, at a speed which delivers when you need.
