Over its 160 year history Cookson & Clegg has gone from producing leather products to manufacturing some of the world’s most robust, functional and iconic pieces of military apparel. From WWII battle dress to cold war era arctic wear we have built our reputation upon the quality of the products we manufacture.

Today the firm employs those same skills essential in the production of military grade products and applies them to the manufacturing of premium quality textile products including clothing and protective wear. Our clothing division manufactures outerwear, jerseywear and legwear for many of the UK’s finest premium clothing brands. Our protective wear division manufactures scrubs, gowns and disposable and reusable face coverings for medical and non-medical applications. We operate across two sites in Blackburn with Darwen totalling 45,000 square feet of state of the art production space, with capacity to produce up to 50,000 sewn products and 500,000 ultrasonically welded products a week.
