British Manufacturing

We have our own factory in Leicester, where we produce best in class thermal underwear for men, women and children.  Our British made thermals have a loyal client base stretching across the world.  Our British made garments are bought by many prestigious, high profile clients including state institutions, public sector, blue chip companies, film & television productions and many more.  The unique manufacturing process delivers garments that are warm, breathable, lightweight and comfortable.


Far East & South Asia Manufacturing

Even though all of our products are designed in the UK, certain ranges are manufactured in the Far East and South Asia.  This allows us to deliver volume production on tight timescales, while being competitive on prices.  As well as importing under our own brands, we can produce under customer own specification and label.  We have in-house designing services at our offices in Leicester so are able to offer bespoke product and packaging design. 

Trade Distribution

We sell to a wide range of trade customers from high-street multiple retail stores, distributors, wholesalers, independent retailers and boutiques.  As well as throughout the UK, we distribute across Europe, North America and other countries.  As well as dealing with us in person, trade customers can visit our trade distribution website which can be reached at: www.rst-distributors.com.
