Shahtex Fabrics

Shahtex UK Ltd is a family run circular knitting company based in Leicester manufacturing high quality weft knitted single and double jersey fabrics for over 30 years. We deliver both greige and finished fabrics and work with garment manufacturers and brands to create fabrics to their specifications.

Shahtex Seamless Garments

In August 2021 we invested into a new venture of circular seamless machines, and they are the revolution in the world of textile machinery. These machines produce products for leading brands elsewhere in the seamless manufacturing world. We are the first and only UK company who have invested (as of yet) in the Seamless manufacturing world.

Placing functionality, performance and aesthetics at the centre of our internal design process we used specialised machinery for our innovative production of:

  • Activewear
  • Shapewear
  • Underwear
  • Medical compression wear
  • Fashion
