At the heart of a Workhouse garment is the sourcing of its materials, they look for stock fabric that has its own story, worthy of the inspiration behind the design. With their dealings in deadstock cloth and our work with English mills that traditionally looms our wool, Workhouse evokes authenticity that bridges the traditional and the contemporary. It’s all about building character, often embracing imperfection rather than perfection to give unique and genuine charm to what they make.
We are not a major corporation; we are an independent team who design and select the very best formal fashion from around the world. All the brands on our site are manufactured here in the UK or in Europe, protecting valuable skills and reducing our carbon footprint. We work closely with our mills and factories to ensure a fair price for a high quality product.
