THE CHARLES KIRK BRAND WILL NOW BE MANUFACTURED AND DISTRIBUTED BY FLAMINGO APPAREL TEXTILES LTD, TRADING AS COOLFLOW SCHOOLWEAR FROM OCTOBER 1ST 2019.

With the turmoil caused by Brexit and the demise of the textile industry, the Horton family has decided that the reduced sales of UK made products and the costs of maintaining machines in Sussex is unsustainable. Distribution of the Charles Kirk brand via Coolflow Schoolwear will achieve a shorter and leaner supply chain, allowing the products to remain competitive in an extremely challenging and ever changing market.

The Loyal family who run Coolflow Schoolwear share the Charles Kirk values of customer service and attention to detail. The technical knowledge of yarns and fabrics held by the team at Coolflow Schoolwear, along with the facility to manufacture in the UK as well as offshore, means that they will continue to provide the service and quality of garments that our customers are accustomed to.

Coolflow Schoolwear also has a produce catalogue including blazers, trousers, skirts and sportswear.
