Irish School Wear Association
The Irish School Wear Association is affiliated to ISME, the Irish Small & Medium Enterprises Association.
The Irish School Wear Association (ISWA) represents more than 300 school wear suppliers and manufacturers nationally. The Association is committed to producing, distributing and retailing quality products to ensure that parents and students have access to uniforms of exceptional quality and value. The Association is also committed to protecting the jobs and businesses in the school wear industry in Ireland.
The Association campaigns to educate parents, teachers, boards of management and the Department of Education and Skills about the value of quality, smart-looking, long-lasting uniforms, rather than opting for the cheapest garments on the shelf.
The ISWA represents businesses nationwide involved in the manufacture and supply of school-specific uniforms from manufacturers to wholesalers, independent retailers and direct school suppliers. All of our members agree to a code of practice. The Association is run on an entirely voluntary basis by some of the sector’s most experienced professionals.
