About Us

The Hosiery Company

Our History

We started life in the East End of London in 1955 and are now the longest established manufacturer and supplier of hosiery to the trade, with over 60 years’ experience. In 2012, The Hosiery Company moved to a larger purpose built warehouse in Bedfordshire as our range continued to expand and we had sadly outgrown our original premises since 1955. The Hosiery Company is still run to this day by the original family.

We supply thousands of products to numerous businesses from the High Street, film & theatre productions, Department Stores, E-Commerce retailers and even Airline’s Cabin Crew. At the last count, we have sold our products to 172 countries, only 23 left to go until we are truly global!
