Our Brand Story

Where It All Began

Nonglak and John McFadden began their respective careers in The Textile Industry in 1987. John with Desmond & Sons in Northern Ireland and Nonglak with Castle Peaks Garments in Thailand. Their paths were to cross for the first time in 1990 when John was posted to Bangkok to manage the Desmond’s Jacket production based in the Castle Peak Factory in Thailand.

Thus, began their business and personal journey. They married in 1993 and returned to the UK in 1994. Over the next 14 years they built their experience of Off-Shore manufacturing and amassed a wealth of experience over several roles within Desmond & Sons and Marks and Spencer.

Who We Are
