We are a world class cap company with a heritage spanning back to 1947, and our expertise in the manufacturing process of retail headwear is unrivalled. Design, quality, ethics and great customer service is at the heart of everything that we do.
But enough about us—let’s talk about you. Whether you are a major high street retailer or an aspiring private label brand, you need a supplier that takes care of the complicated stuff, so you can focus on what’s important to you – your business.
Put simply, we manufacture headwear for the retail and fashion sectors.
We pride ourselves in offering the highest possible quality, not just in the products that we supply and manufacture, but also in our customer service and advice.
We will work with you and your team, helping you to create the best possible products, putting your brand’s needs first at all times.
As a business we promote long standing partnerships….. period.
For several decades, we have been manufacturing and importing headwear from partnered production facilities across Asia plus we have our own stock and decoration facility, right here in the UK.
With our expertise in production and sourcing, you can be assured that you are in safe hands when it comes to creating and ordering your products. We live and breathe headwear, and we are not ashamed to admit that there is almost nothing we don’t know or can’t tell you about headwear.
At SL Black Label we are passionate about making your life as easy as possible – simply tell us what you want and we will deliver, be it a simple off the shelf product, to a unique piece of headwear designed specifically for your brand.
Whilst recognizing that overseas sourcing of fabrics and/or garments will offer substantial cost benefits, SL Black Label are aware of the potential social impact that offshore supply can have. For this reason we have issued a statement regarding humane manufacturing conditions in overseas countries that we ensure adherence to.
SL Black Label opposes the exploitation of child labour, and will not knowingly make purchases from manufacturers or their agents who do not comply fully with the labour, safety and other relevant laws of their respective country and the relevant ILO conventions on child labour and working practices. SL Black Label will also not knowingly make purchases from any manufacturing source where workers of any age are expected to work in unreasonable conditions. For example where the levels of hygiene or safety or general environment are unsatisfactory taking into account local factors. SL Black Label opposes the exploitation of workers generally and supports a fair reward and a good working environment, taking into account local conditions.
A written commitment has been obtained from all our manufacturers, confirming compliance to the SL Black Label statement on ethical sourcing and manufacturing.
SL Black Label will take all reasonable and practical steps, including regular factory visits by the company’s representatives or agents, to ensure that required standards are being met and maintained. We will also strive to be alert to any signs which may indicate that a production process may involve exploitation or represent a danger to health, safety or the environment.
SL Black Label operates a formal system that encourages our clients to make independent visits to our factories to undertake an audit if required.
Where ever possible, SL Black Label will source materials for their products responsibly. Our primary factory has recently been accredited with W.R.A.P and OEKO-TEX 100 Standard and we are doing all possible to actively encourage our other factories to do the same. You have our assurance that your headwear will be delivered in the highest quality and with the environment in mind.
