Uniform Care
Proudly South African
We are a trade only supplier and only supply Schoolshops on school premises or Retailers.


Since 1933, it has been our mission to become one of the most respected school uniform manufacturers in the world. Our factory is based in Diep River, Cape Town (South Africa) and we currently employ 550 employees. We believe the key to our success has been the philosophy of “sticking to our knitting” and through this we have become masters in manufacturing School Uniforms.

The increased demand from export markets, mainly the UK, has enabled us to specialise in manufacturing quality uniforms throughout the year, as well as retaining the necessary skill and expertise to be extremely efficient, consistent and competitive. In addition, this allows us to provide unparalleled quality, flexibility, service and delivery that our Customers deserve.

Our competitive advantage is that we are able to provide continuous support to our Customers all year round, on all our product lines and offer unbeatable turnaround times on all urgent replenishment orders.

Our Schoolwear brand, Envoy, has been the Industry benchmark for over 77 years. This has been achieved by continuously updating our plant and equipment to ensure the best production methods are used - enabling us to consistently manufacture highly durable and stylish Schoolwear.

We refuse to compromise on quality standards and only the finest performance fabrics, tried and tested over many years are utilised for our Schoolwear range. As a result of our strict quality standards, fair labour practice, environmental standards and 100% of our direct labour costs incurred in South Africa, we have been awarded the status of being a “Proudly South African Company”.

Our website product catalogue features our more popular Schoolwear products as well as miscellaneous ranges in an easy-to-navigate format.

We would also be more than happy to customise any existing product in our range or design any new product according to your specifications and design requirements.
