Grahame Gardner sets the trend with revamped workwear line


orkwear provider Grahame Gardner has relaunched an innovative range of garments which bring state-of- the art fabrics together with the latest printing

techniques. The Advance range, which was first unveiled in 2016 and is still a UK first when it comes to producing dye sublimated tunics, is now new and improved after undergoing a refresh. The range utilises cutting-edge dye sublimation technology allowing customers to choose any colour, image or pattern as part of their uniform designs. Customers can even use their company logos to create bespoke panels and trims, allowing organisations to present a strong corporate image across their entire business, ensuring staff have workwear that truly aligns with their corporate identity.

The Leicester-based firm originally launched

its Advance range in response to increasing demand from businesses for more customisable and contemporary uniforms that provide increased comfort and resilience. It targets the dental, nursing, healthcare, veterinary and spa and beauty markets and uses a technical fabric called Aura which provides the wearer with moisture control as well as durability.

The 100% polyester, 160gsm Aura fabric, can be hand washed or in a washing machine at 40⁰C, and is easy to maintain due to its fast drying nature and inherent wrinkle and shrink resistance. Sizes are from 6 – 26 (XS – XXL) and available on minimum order quantities of 10 garments, with delivery in approximately six to seven weeks.
