Cock & Bull Tweed Collection, Manufacturing in the United Kingdom

02 May 2018
Made In the UK

A short blog piece in which we explain a little about Cock & Bull Tweed collection's commitment to manufacturing exclusively in the United Kingdom and are proud to fly the Made in Britain flag.


Why Buy British?

The last few years have seen a major surge in the number of companies championing British manufacturing – and with all of our products proudly made in the UK, Cock & Bull Tweed Collection is one of them. This is a subject close to our heart and one we’re passionate about. In the wider retail landscape, there are many reasons for this shift towards UK manufacturing, perhaps most pertinently the increased emphasis on avoiding unethical processes in overworked and underfunded overseas factories and production lines. Many shoppers now consider it very important to buy British-made products whenever possible – but why should you buy British?

Support the Local Economy

There is no better way to show your support for the UK economy than by consciously seeking out British-made products wherever and whenever you can. By doing so, you’ll be helping to support not only the British economy, but the untold numbers of UK-based companies eager to prove that staying afloat and turning a profit is still possible while remaining ethical. By buying British, you’re supporting UK employment and entrepreneurship, which in turn helps drive future innovation for these companies and ensures a healthier outlook for the nation’s economy.

Benefit from Great Quality

As a way of safeguarding the quality of the products you buy, opting for British-made items is a superb option. Many UK companies carefully craft everything in-house or use trusted experts to create truly artisanal items – just like our tweed waistcoats, bow ties and caps.

Quality is an ever more pressing concern for UK audiences, with 60% believing if they buy British, they’ll get their hands on a well-made item. Buying from British manufacturers helps ensure your items are made by companies who are truly passionate about their products. It’s also fair to say that retailers happy to fly the Made in Britain flag are likely also invested in maintaining the highest standards of production and finish.

No More Fakes

UK patent law prohibits the creation and sale of fake or counterfeit goods, so if you buy a specific brand, you’ll be sure that’s what you’re getting. This not only helps you benefit from superior manufacturing – but also lessens the chance you’ll end up purchasing a pricey copy rather than the ‘real deal’.

Great Customer Service

Wouldn’t it be great to be able to get in touch with the manufacturer of your product quickly and easily? By buying locally, you can be sure that whether it’s a head office you’re seeking or a shop in your town or city, there’s a UK-based port of call.

Reduce Your Purchase Footprint

By buying British, you’ll reduce the amount of overseas shipping required and help preserve the environment for future generations. Anything you can do to help limit the product supply chain will prevent your goods racking up unnecessary mileage to reach you.

Quicker Delivery

This is a very important factor in choosing to buy British – faster turnaround times on purchases. If you buy locally, you can expect a speedy dispatch and arrival time as your product has to travel over a much shorter distance to reach you than some of the cheaper items you might purchase from overseas.

Supporting British manufacturing, companies and products is great for both consumers and local companies, ensuring customers get the items they want and local companies continue to grow and thrive.
