Our founder, Paul Mitchell, has been a successful retailer for over 28 years, with broad experience across all functions in retail. With a background specializing in operations Paul has a proven track record of success in both Retail and Hospitality across leading organizations from Donna Karan to House of Fraser and latterly the Frasers Group. This wealth of knowledge has given Paul the confidence that he can deliver any project of any size. Calaby Uniforms is unashamedly technology focused and uses this to add value to clients. This knowledge and experience has helped define his belief in a sustainable world, where people are looked after, and the planet is protected. Fashion is a major driver of climate change and any retailer worth their salt must strive to be part of the solution. On this basis, Paul started Calaby Uniforms, with the aim of being a carbon neutral business from day one.
