A Yorkshire-based fashion brand has moved into larger offices to accommodate fast company growth.
Established in 1988, the family-run Breton Shirt Company boasts 100% organic cotton shirts, made on the Atlantic coast by a small Portuguese family business. The shirts are created, manufactured and hand finished to the highest possible standards using only locally sourced materials and skilled craftspeople.
Expanding the retail brand’s office space, the new base is within a converted townhouse on Tower Street, off West Park in central Harrogate.
The increase in office size has allowed the business to put plans in place to expand its current in-house team, including seeking a new appointment to support business growth.
The retailer has seen huge success across the globe, sending 40% of orders overseas to its largest markets in Australia, America and Japan. The firm plans to increase its UK customer base, as well as the recruitment of a new member of staff to support business expansion and development.
Commenting on the expansion, founder, Rachel Walker said: “I’m incredibly pleased to have moved my business into a new office in Harrogate and I am proud of the growth we have achieved that has enabled us to do this.
“This also gives us the opportunity to expand the team now that we have additional space to accommodate the growing business. The move has allowed us to be more creative, approaching new design methods and developing new ideas for our products.
“We are now looking to increase our UK market and are well equipped to take this Christmas by storm.”
