Our parent company Gailarde Ltd was established in 1979. We have been in the textile industry for nearly 35 years, sourcing and making the finest bed linens and towels. Our family has worked in the textile industry in the UK for 4 generations. Gailarde Ltd was established to provide Household Textiles specifically manufactured for the Contract Trade. Over the years, we have widened both our range of products and our scope of customers. Over the past 3 decades we have built up both long standing and lucrative relationships with many hotels, care homes, hospitals, universities, cruise ships, prisons, laundries, etc. We are a fast expanding company who both import and manufacture. Gailarde Ltd has been supplying the student market for the last 20 years. We currently supply over 70% of the Universities in the UK and over the last few years have been selling to thousands of students directly from our website. UniKitOut has been developed to allow students to furnish their accommodation with even less hassle (and money!) than ever before.
We pride ourselves on providing quality products with attentive and genuine customer service at competitive prices. These principles over the years have allowed us to grow into the UK’s number 1 linen supplier. Although Gailarde Ltd is a growing company and now has a full time staff of over 40 people, we remember that we started as a small family company and we remain faithful to that heritage. The company has always and will always put relationships and people first. The utmost importance is placed on doing right by our staff, our suppliers and, above all, our customers. Here at Gailarde we are extremely proud of our fantastic reputation for customer service and, as such, we would like to encourage you to pick up the phone and give us a call. We will be delighted to help you with all your linen needs and are confident that we can provide the unparalleled quality, value and service for which Gailarde has become renowned. Gailarde Ltd is an ISO9001 & ISO14001 accredited company. As an extension of Gailarde Ltd, UnikitOut will embody all of its values and working practices.
UniKitOut are specialist suppliers of student essentials. Being linen specialists, we started off selling bedding to students but soon realised there was a requirement for much more. By using our own knowledge (consulting our young 'ex-student' graduate staff) and working with the universities we were already supplying, we came up with a range of products which we know students both want and need. These include bedding, linen, towels, cooking equipment, crockery, homeware and much more. We have taken a lot of time and care when sourcing our range of products. This is because we know students are clever, savvy consumers who want good quality and even better prices. We pride ourselves on understanding the student market and students themselves. We have collected a comprehensive range of what we feel are essential items when moving away from home for the first time. To make the experience even easier, we have collected these items into packs. The most important criteria for the products on UniKitOut is that they are reliable, quality items and GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY (we did say we understand students!)
