Clothing brand Henbury celebrated its 20th anniversary on 13 October 2017.

Henbury was founded in 1997, with its first products launching in January 1998. “From humble beginnings, with the initial offer of five polo shirts, the Henbury brand has evolved into one of the main players in the industry today,” said managing director Katie Stewart. “Known for its quality, innovative designs, stylishly crafted products and high level marketing, Henbury has continued to offer reliability to its customers for the last 20 years.”

The scale of the Henbury’s evolution will be evident in 2018, with the brand promising an impressive 87 fashionable and contemporary corporate, promotional and workwear styles. These will include new additions, the Men’s Knitted Short Sleeved Polo (H716) and the Ladies’ Longline Open Cardigan (H719). Both are made in a 50% cotton/50% acrylic, 12-gauge knit, and available in black, navy and grey marl. The styles have a fashionable design with European appeal and are trans-seasonal pieces. Henbury says the new designs offer more flexibility and a casual option for corporatewear, with the polo in particular aimed at a slightly younger customer, while the cardigan will appeal to a wide variety of age ranges and professions.

Henbury adds that it values its partnerships and still works with many of the same suppliers it used when it started out 20 years ago, saying that “ensuring continuity is one of the key strengths of the brand”.

Katie commented: “On a personal note, I have relished the opportunity to bring such a highly respected brand to the market and to be part of such an innovative business. I have been fortunate to work with some wonderfully inspiring people whom I can now call friends and I look forward to the next 20 years of Henbury.”
