Spirit was formed in 2005 by Nick and Joy Watkins, With over 25 years of experience, Nick has proven himself to be a key "fashion forward" supplier to an array of high street retailers. Since starting out in 2005, the company has made a name for itself as a creative, reactive, and flexible supplier whilst maintaining a friendly and personal level of service. As a result of this, the customer base has grown to include 11 major retailers in the last 10 years.
Spirit's pattern room in the West End of London allows their in-house designers to turn around new samples very quickly. The designers regularly meet with buyers and collaborate on their latest trend boards, Once an order is initiated, production can be placed in either Vietnam or Bulgaria, depending on the urgency of the order and the fabrics used.
2010 marked the opening of a joint venture factory in Vietnam and the beginning of European manufacturing from Bulgaria.
2012 marked the opening of a Jersey department, which has rapidly become a core part of the product offering for Spirit.
As the company has grown, Toby and Lucy Watkins were bought into the family business to handle extra sales and push the business further.
