These knits were made by Hop Hing Woollen Sweaters Factory who we have been working with since 2007. They are a family owned business established by the late Mr Tsui Senior in 1962. Now owned and managed by his son Jeff, they have their head office, development team and sampling in Hong Kong and their main manufacturing in Dongguan, China.
We visit Hop Hing at least once a year and have a great, long term working relationship with them. We are actively working to source the most sustainable yarns with them through Novatex and UPW. Jeff's team is highly experienced, and their operation has full, onsite capabilities including washing and finishing.
