About Us

Leonard Hudson – specialists in schoolwear since 1965 – has its roots in the clothing trade dating back to 1879 . Built on six generations of experience, our mission is to “provide schools and organisations with a quality range of uniform, which is value for money and backed up with personal service all year round.”

Our range provides schools and organizations with a complete source for their uniform requirements. We design, manufacture and distribute some of the most cutting-edge schoolwear, under our own label – which is renowned for quality, style and choice.

Please browse our website to view the full range of our capabilities – you will find we have put our experience to good use.  Lynwood, our Ties, Badges and Scarves brand is synonymous with the best quality in the industry.  Leonique, our bespoke garment range, offers you the opportunity to create a unique image.  Acrylomax, our unique blended cotton/acrylic fibre is the secret to our high quality Classic sweatshirts.  And now, in our Hudson River range, a new addition to our portfolio, you have the ideal solution to your garment needs for school leavers, events, trips and sports teams.

In line with the guiding values and principles of Leonard Hudson, we are committed to improving our performance and pursuing best-practice in labour standards and environmental management, and to constantly assess what we do to ensure that it is providing exactly what our customers need.
