About us

About the shop

From the early days when A Star was first conceived , to now, where we tailor thousands of garments every week, quality has always been our focus.

As we have grown, so too have the products we offer. From athletics to angling, we are proud to be a major UK-based sportswear supplier for so many different sports. Spanning all sports, our tracksuit range continues to go from strength to strength and this year we will be offering even more choice in terms of fabric and style.

In addition, we are really excited to announce the national launch of our new ski and snowboard base layers, which are part of our Body Barrier range. We’ve given boring old base layers the A Star treatment guaranteeing that you’ll turn heads both on and off the slopes.

As all of our loyal customers will notice, we’ve had a makeover and we’ve got a new logo and brand to carry forward the A Star story into the next chapter. This allows us to showcase our products even better and appeal across the many sports and activities we now cater for, of course, while still staying true to our roots in producing the high quality leotards and gymnastics accessories we always have.


Geography

We are based in Mid-Devon and although we move from village to village have still stayed within a 5 mile radius of where we originated. We are now in a Rural Business Centre miles from no-where!

History

A Star is Born. And my daughters are to blame.

Having spent enough time listening to my daughters request for a specific coloured leotard and not being able to find one, I wondered that perhaps the only way to get peace in the house was to make one myself. The more I talked to other parents, the more there seemed an opportunity for a new range of outfits, particularly quality garments at realistic prices. Hence “A Star Leotards” was born back in 2002. It took a long time and lots of research to launch a range of fashionable quality leotards all that time ago. Initially we tried to obtain British made fabrics but could not find the quality of manufacture we wanted (if you’re out there please contact me!) so we imported most of our fabric from Europe. Our designers spoke to young gymnasts and trampolinists to discover what points they consider to be important and then a range was produced. Since then we have developed the range of designs and fabrics, we hope you like them.

Although both my daughters are still involved in the sports, they are no longer competing (coaching only).

Logistics

We employ local people, mainly mums with children at schools locally to cut, sew, embroider, diamante, check quality, process orders & administer accounts. We work closely as a team to bring you the quality garments you have come to expect from A Star Leotards. We do not outsource our products and it is important to us that we promote the UK economy in providing jobs and income to support this.

Being a small company we can often make individual garments as requested so if you see a design that you like which is not in the fabric you like then please give us a ring and we will try and help. Alternatively try out our Custom module on the website. This is a part of the website where you can look at our designs and try them out with different fabric options to see what they would look like. Also if any clubs or schools want special designs, for teams for example, then please do not hesitate to contact us.

A Star Leotards are absolutely dedicated to your total satisfaction. If you have any suggestions or comments please email us at sales@astar.uk.com .
