Paloma - Specialist School Uniforms

PALOMA has been supplying specialist school uniforms to nursery, pre-prep, prep and senior schools, boys and girls, in the UK since 1990. We are unique in that we manufacture small production runs of individual, customised uniform, and supply both retailers and schools.

 

We do not confine you to a fixed stock range, but instead respond to your individual requirements. For example, if you would like your summer dress to be either front or back opening, we will suggest a range of designs to include this, or if you have a sample or an idea you would like to pursue, come and talk to us.

 

We supply full uniforms, or one garment only, or somewhere in between. Sometimes schools need to change just one garment to improve an otherwise successful uniform. For example, we are regularly asked to up-date a traditional outer garment.

 

Practical points: we aim to increase the life of each garment by including as many practical design features as possible. e.g. adjustable button elastic on waistbands, two inch hems on all pinafores and non-pleated skirts - unheard of for schoolwear! Also, we only use fabrics that have been specified by fabric manufacturers as 'fit for purpose'.

 

All our garments are machine washable, and many can be tumble-dried. We give clear labels concerning wash-care. This includes our outerwear styles and all knitwear. The only exceptions we can think of are structured hats and tailored jackets.

 

Our charges: There is no charge for any design work necessary to carry forward your ideas. If a visit to your school is required, the first is free, and all others if you proceed with PALOMA. We like to produce samples before proceeding with the new uniform. You will be informed if there is a charge to any sample requested, (standard production cost), but most samples are free and returnable to PALOMA.

 

Your uniform is part of your corporate image, and we will discuss with you how this can best be reflected in the uniform. Our starting point is with you, the school.
