made in england since 1987

our story

Founded in 1987 by Dilip Patel, a bio-technologist from India who came to the UK in 1981, Jack Masters is a knitwear manufacturer based in the Aylestone area of Leicester, England.

Run by Dilip’s son, Snahal Patel since 2012, Jack Masters’ aim is to create beautifully crafted knitwear which is ethically produced, with a low-carbon footprint and at a fair price. Uniquely, we are able to design, manufacture and ship, all under one roof at our small, UK based, family-owned and operated factory.

This means that we can be completely transparent in our all practices and have total control of our manufacturing process from start to finish.

We employee 40 people who, between them, have an in-depth understanding of knitwear manufacture. Our home city of Leicester has been the historic centre of the garment industry in the UK for almost 200 years, and the special skills required to produce our very high-quality knitwear have been handed down through the generations.
