Fashion software company, Unmade, raises £4.75m to fund continued expansion
We are excited to support Unmade's £4.75 million investment alongside Octopus Ventures and Felix Capital.
Founded by Hal Watts, Kirsty Emery-Laws and Ben Alun-Jones, Unmade was started with the mission to reimagine both the design and manufacturing processes within the fashion industry, so brands only make what is actually sold, in support of a sustainable, ethical economy. Unmade is driving innovation through an end-to-end digital solution for on-demand production at scale, delivering customisation, team-wear and micro-fulfilment.
Unmade is partnering with forward-thinking fashion, lifestyle and sportswear brands including Rapha Racing Ltd, and a number of iconic fashion houses, to foster a new level of customer experience through customisation and direct interaction with the product that is completely integrated to the existing ecosystems. Earlier partners of the company include Opening Ceremony, Farfetch, Christopher Raeburn and Selfridges.
This funding round will be used to fund Unmade’s continued global expansion and development of its technology, as well as improvements in serving existing customers.
