Hunter Apparel Solutions has won a three-year contract to produce ethical and sustainable uniforms for Lumo, a new train service due to run between London and Edinburgh. Launching October 25th, Lumo is a 100% electric rail service that aims to encourage greener and more affordable travel and has bold ambitions to reimagine rail for the 21st century.
Lumo sought a partner that could design, source, and produce a sustainable uniform that would minimize the company’s carbon footprint. The uniform design had to be distinctly different, standing out from previous rail uniforms to reflect the company’s challenger status and ambitions to reimagine rail travel. Attire for over 100 staff is currently in production at Hunter’s factory in Derry~Londonderry, which will help create apprenticeships, and preserve jobs and legacy skills in the region.
