Established in 1993 Banana Moon Workshop Limited is a personalised clothing company with a longstanding reputation in design quality and customer service. The company was formed by directors Paul, Jackie and Nikki who have been in the industry for over 30 years.
Banana Moon has always tried to separate itself from the usual embroidery and printing companies. As you can tell by the name we are a little bit different! Banana Moon began serving the local school and nursery market. The launch of an innovative website with e-commerce facilities helped to push the company into the national and international mail order market when web marketing was very much in its infancy.
Currently in a brand new purpose built 7,500 sq.ft facility with ultra-modern in-house embroidery and printing departments, the company is well equipped for further growth. Located in the commercial hub between Bradford and Leeds, just off Junction 27 of the M62 motorway, Banana Moon Workshop is right at the heart of a bustling business area, defying the current economic climate.
What We Do

Since moving into our bespoke built factory in 2009, Banana Moon has invested in another brand new unit. In terms of machinery, we have introduced brand new processes and seriously increased output capacity. This has also coincided with the doubling of the workforce since then. This is to meet the demands of orders but also to constantly drive down out turnaround times with maximum efficiency.
