History

For over 40 years Arc have been at the forefront of developing innovative fabrics and garments to be used in a wide variety of industries and settings. 

Fashion

Our knitting plant provides many of Europe’s top store groups and Designer Houses with knitted fabrics ranging from Viscose mixes to Lurex stripes and Slubs. Our Jacquard machines allow us to cater for special customer requests. We offer Single and Jersey Knits in a huge variety of blends and mixes. From Tactels and Slinky fabrics to high quality Slub fabrics, our in-house design and development team means our collection is constantly updated. Additionally, Arc’s screen printing and digital printing plant allows us to provide a totally bespoke wraparound service.

Healthcare

Our PPE gowns are specifically engineered for use in health, social care and contamination control environments. They are made in the UK in a special polymer laminated onto a spunbound polypropylene. This forms an effective barrier to liquids (incl blood), low hazard chemicals and microbial penetration. All our gowns conform to either EN-13795 and/or EN14126 We also produce a range of face covering to include snoods and masks, these can be finished with an anti-viral (Covid-19), anti-bacterial or anti-pollution application and include your company branding.

Having our knitting plant, dye house, printing & garment manufacturing facilities allows us the flexibility and scale.
