About Us

Skinwear Ltd arose from the ashes of Davenport Knitwear and can boast over 50 years experience of supplying fashion knitwear to the best UK brands and retailers. All of our products are manufactured here in our factory in Hinckley, Leicestershire – the cradle of the UK’s knitting industry.

For the last 10 years we have pioneered the use of Shima 12 gg ‘Wholegarment’ knitting machines which produce garments and accessories without any sewing seams whatsoever.

Our expertise covers all yarns from cashmere to synthetics, from fashion garments to complex knitted medical devices, and from small specialised projects to large production runs.

Our ‘seamlessness’ enables the creation of beautiful, comfortable clothing with almost unlimited patterning/striping ability, thus allowing us to keep pace with the fashion industry and to create unique ranges of undergarments for the sports and medical markets.
