About us

Welcome to Clothesource

Clothesource provides the world clothing industry with a unique range of services, information and consultancy, based on our roots in garment manufacturing and international marketing.

We set up in 1992 to find Eastern European garment factories for Western customers. Retailers and brands like Gap, Marks & Spencer and Next  have used Clothesource to improve their garment production and sourcing over the past 25 years: suppliers like Brandix and Avery-Dennison use the information we generate for ourselves every day to help them compete for business globally.

Our staff and office in Romania ensure our customers get high quality products on time: from our Oxford office, just inside the Cotswolds, we give them informed advice no other garment or textile consultancy can match.

On consultancy briefs, we apply all our collective expertise to individual clients’ specific needs: we strongly disagree with the “our doctrine meets all briefs” approach to problem-solving too many other consultancies offer the clothing industry.

But when our CEO, Mike Flanagan, is increasingly concerned with the declining profitability of many Western retailers and the effect that is having on wages and working conditions in those developing countries that provide practically all the clothes worn in the West. When he shares  his opinions about industry trends on this site, they’re his views alone.
