Universal Works’ history

Universal Works was founded by David Keyte. This Englishman is the centre of everything Universal Works stands for. Keyte was involved with everything from the start in 2009, the year Universal Works was founded. The design process, produce, and sale process. He even made some Universal Works clothes at his own kitchen table. David Keyte thinks it’s important for Universal Works that al processes are working in a responsible and fair way. His goal is to create real, fair clothing based on a good shape and design, but is never over-designed.
David Keyte grew up in the 70’s on the countryside of England. He was part of a working-class family and so wore lots of working clothes and gear. As founder and CEO of Universal Works, Keyte values the way a product is made and how it functions. Keyte works with passion from the heart for Universal Works to create a high quality, but also sustainable product. He does this with success. Besides Europe, you can find Universal Works in Asia and the United States. In addition, Universal Works had collaborations with different other big brands, like Adidas, Stag, Sebago and GOODHOOD.
