The ATMF has been set up primarily to act as an apparel & textile manufacturer's voice.
We aim to work with various stakeholders such as manufacturers, designers, brands, innovation centres and Universities to promote quality production that utilises local industry, skill-base and vertical set-ups to ensure shorter supply chains.
We aim to achieve this through:
Supporting and enabling practices that promote a fair, inclusive, and ethical environment for suppliers in the garment/textile industry.
To act as an official channel of communication and promote sector unity between the industry and its various stakeholders.
To promote the business, technical, and general knowledge and of those engaged in the industry.
To host workshops, networking forums and trade shows.
To create a directory connecting designers and brands to garment and textile suppliers in Leicester transparent in their commitment to legal and socially responsible business and employment practices.
To help meet net-zero targets through sustainable, recyclable output, backed by innovative ideas and production methods.
To Promote “Brand Leicester” under the BRAND UK umbrella.
Based in the heart of the country with easy access to all parts of UK we are well placed to represent the entire apparel and textile supply chain, from design, embroidery, knitting, dying, printing and manufacturing to delivering the finished products to brand warehouses.
