Sourcing Studio was founded in 2000 to fill the need for brands to be able to translate their designs and ideas into beautiful, high-quality garments. Founder, Sharon Taylor worked in fully fashioned knitwear for 9 years prior to launching Sourcing Studio. While Knitwear is still the core of our business, with all team members specialising in this category, we also work across a broad range of apparel categories including shirting, silks, coating, as well as soft homewares and accessories.
