About Korbond

Origin of the Korbond Name - Henry Korski

History

Korbond was established in 1956 by a Polish migrant, 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 55 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.
