Caroline and Bernard Bunting started a children’s clothing company, The Children’s Warehouse, in 1994 not long after the birth of their second child, Anna. The Children’s Warehouse, based in London, had a strong reputation for the design and manufacture of high quality children’s clothes; so much so that parents asked schools to enlist The Children’s Warehouse to manufacture school uniform – and so that’s exactly what they did.
By 2007 The Children’s Warehouse had grown significantly in the independent school uniform sector in London. A chance phone call that year led the Bunting’s to acquire Perry, a Leeds based factory that had been firmly established as manufacturing distinctive school uniforms here in the UK since 1946.
Since then, the Bunting’s have grown Perry to become leaders in innovation and design as a supplier of uniforms to schools, universities and clubs. We operate close to our original locations with our factory and warehouse in Armley, West Leeds, and three showrooms in Knightsbridge, London.
As the business has grown, we have increasingly been commissioned by a wide range of prestigious organisations seeking to enhance their own brand with garments that showcase their heritage. We have a thriving textile design team and specially trained garment technologists who work with our clients to ensure we interpret their vision and reflect this in garments their students and members are proud to wear.
…And as for Anna? Having grown up in the business, she now heads up the University and Club division of Perry – A family business which prides itself on the quality of garments and a friendly service.
