Our History

From our humble beginnings back in 1956 Korbond remains a family owned and UK operated business in which we still hold family values at our core.

Korbond was established by Henry Korski who supplied stiffened belting to the garment trade. Henry was an engineer and his wife a chemist. Together they expanded their business to become a major coater and laminator of textiles for the garment and shoe trade, specialising in thermo plastic coatings. Various products were developed including different types of fusible interlinings, belt backing, bra strapping, shoe and garment labels and curtain linings. The knowledge passed down by Henry and his wife has formed the basis of our “iron on” technology and expertise that we are still proud to promote with today’s extensive range of products.

Having traded for over 50 years within the haberdashery and clothes care market, Korbond are respected as haberdashery experts with the reputation of a brand established on product quality, supported by excellent service, representing value for the consumer. In the early 1980’s Korbond entered the UK Market as the “Care & Repair” brand. Korbond is now the number one supplier to the UK grocery sector for haberdashery products, having traded with large retailers for over 25 years, as well as an established and respected supplier to major high street stores, convenience and independent stores, large national wholesalers and digital outlets.

With many years of experience within the retail sector, Korbond have expanded their product range to include other high impulse, emergency and distress products. Our comprehensive family of UK and internationally recognised brands encompass care and repair, sewing and crafting, hair care, beauty and bath, travel accessories and home essentials.

With a portfolio of brands established on product quality and value, supported by excellent service, Korbond have an industry reputation as non-food experts.

We offer a bespoke solution to each customer, allowing them to tailor their product range and service model to suit their needs. Our approach is friendly and flexible and designed to deliver a low maintenance solution for our customers.
