Trio of fashion wins for Duo UK

Trio of fashion wins for Duo UK

Manchester-based packaging manufacturer, Duo UK, has been appointed by three major fashion labels to provide all e-commerce and returns packaging.

Online retailers Pink Boutique, Pretty Lavish, and TAYLRD Clothing have chosen Duo UK to manufacturer and supply their packaging, off the back of the firm’s credentials with other successful fashion e-tailers.

The manufacturing firm employs more than 100 people at its 70,000 sq ft factory, and will manufacture branded polythene mailing bags for Pink Boutique designed in the retailer’s signature pink and gold colourway. 

Duo UK will also manufacture all branded packaging for TAYLRD clothing, a new clothing brand specialising in menswear staples, and fashion brand Pretty Lavish.

The firm has 29 years of experience producing postal packaging solutions, as well as the ability to distribute internationally.

Anthony Brimelow, commercial director at Duo UK said: “We’re thrilled to be working with three of the most successful and dynamic fashion retailers in the UK. Our clients choose to work with us because we genuinely care about their businesses – they trust our advice, which has come from years of experience in the e-tail sector. As manufacturers our knowledge of the engineering of packaging products and applications enables us to offer insight and guidance on best practice in the industry.”

Duo UK is the first UK manufacturer to produce mailing bags using GreenPE, a polythene that uses sugarcane, rather than oil, as its base substance and is carbon neutral as well as 100% sustainable. 

The company works with brands such as JD Williams, JD Sports and Tesco and in 2015 launched DuoGreen to help customers achieve their environmental goals.
