Ten&Lee

Working with Cowboys!

Ten&Lee was working with a small manufacturer based in Acton in north west London up until early April. We will refer to this manufacturer as a cowboy because they are refusing to refund payments Ten&Lee made for incorrect monokini sample pieces they produced. The manufacturer Sample Studio who we are no longer working with have refused to take ownership for their errors when making the St.Lucia and Grenada sample pieces. Negligence of quality control on their side and sheer laziness has caused a loss of time; money spent boh on printing & production, alongside a waste of fabrics and trimmings.

Ten&Lee's official launch date is 20th June 2016, to keep informed, follow Ten&Lee's social media channels to find the first season collection of monokini's and how they can be purchased.

Packaging envelopes

Ten&Lee has been searching high and low for reasonably priced  packaging envelopes to dispatch the swimwear pieces once produced. After checking both UK and overseas manufacturers to purchase customised bubbled lined envelopes Ten&Lee have managed to locate a supplier through Alibaba.com in China, who provide these at a very low cost. Ten&Lee will be using Royal Mail to deliver the swimwear pieces, which will not cost UK customers any extra fee on postage or to return/exchange any items over £100. Ten&Lee will be offering free delivery to all UK based customers once the products are available for sale spending £100 or more.
