About our factory

Halcyon Blue CMT Swimwear Factory Logo
Please note we are not taking on any new enquiries for Swimwear.
Halcyon Blue Manufacturing is the industrial arm of HB Activewear and Swimwear. Our sewing factory is based in West Sussex, United Kingdom. Most of our work is with stretch fabric and Lycra. We are happy to consider any simple sewing work and over the years have made many different items. 
We specialise in working with stretch fabrics. Garments we make on a regular basis include: T-Shirts, dancewear, leggings, gym tops, lycra shorts and dresses and men's underwear and men's lycra swimwear.

Whether you are an established brand or looking to start up in business we can help you.

Halcyon Blue Manufacturing works with clients on a confidential basis to ensure trust and security is assured. Our reputation depends on a high level of service and dedication to providing tailor-made solutions for our clients.

Our current capacity is up to 1,000 garments per week. However, this does very much depends on the complexity of work at the time.


We have many industrial sewing machines including elasticators, overlockers, cover stitch (including top and bottom cover), flat seamer, bartaks, flatbed lockstitches, zig zag (not 3 step) and binders. Other machines including a band knife and a twin head trimming machine, help us keep work flowing around the factory.


We use the Vetigraph CAD/CAM and lay marker system. This is compatible with Gerber, Lectra, Assyst Bulmer and most Optitex systems. Card patterns can be converted to digital files for a nominal charge. We can quickly and easily advise clients with fabric consumption data, prior to production, to assist purchasing and costing.
