Unmade was co-founded by Ben Alun-Jones, Kirsty Emery and Hal Watts, a dynamic trio who met while studying at the Royal College of Art. Combining their backgrounds in textiles and engineering, Unmade offer unique, made-to-order scarves, t-shirts and jumpers which allows the customer to be part of the creation process, disrupting the colour, pattern and/or scale of designs. Once decided upon, the design goes instantly to one of the Stoll knitting machines in the Somerset House HQ, where it is knitted using the finest Italian Merino wool, Cashmere or Cotton. Customers can take advantage of the free UK delivery; arriving on their doorstep within 5-7 working days.

By enabling people – and brands – to "print" clothes to order, the whole process of clothing manufacture can be reconfigured. Unmade will never produce anything that nobody wants.
