About Us

Founded in 1987 by husband and wife team, Dilip and Illa Patel, who came to the UK in 1981, Jack Masters is a high quality knitwear manufacturer based in the Aylestone area of Leicester, England.

Now run by Dilip’s son, Snahal Patel, Jack Masters’ aim is to create 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 and family-owned 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 35 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.

Jack Masters makes luxury sweaters and accessories, for men, women and children, using sustainable yarns such as Italian Merino Wool, Scottish Cashmere, British Lambswool, Organic Cotton and Linen. We also knit using recycled cotton mix yarns, man-made synthetic yarns and blends with low MOQ’s and fast lead times.

Extended services include manufacturing Christmas JumpersDog Sweaters, Throws, Cushion covers, Baby blankets, Homeware, Shawls, Ponchos, Wraps and other lifestyle products. We specialise in producing contemporary styles with short lead times whilst guaranteeing quality and competitive pricing so our customers can sell their products with healthy margins.

We have wide collection of classic timeless styles and our experienced design and technical teams are capable of producing all kinds of bespoke knitted designs. Please contact us at sales@jackmasters.co.uk for more details.
