The company, which recently expanded its embroidery and cresting service for retailers, resorts and golf clubs, has designed and produced an own-brand tartan collection for The 140th Open Championship which will take place at Royal St George’s in Kent from July 10-17, 2011.

“Marbas is renowned for its quality of tailoring and excellence in the manufacture of natural fibres and mercerised garments. These key attributes combined with their manufacture of The Official Open Championship Tartan have always defined Marbas at The Open Championship,” commented Chris Hammond, IMG Golf Licensing.

Of the well-established tie-up, David Kinsey of The Kinsey Partnership, Marbas Golf’s exclusive agent for the UK, Ireland and Middle East, said: “We are very honoured to be celebrating six years of partnership with the R&A and The Open Championship. This association has, without a doubt, enabled us to work with and supply a host of exclusive championship venues worldwide, including some of the best known golf clubs and courses in the world, including St Andrews Links and Turnberry.”

He added: “The expansion of our in-house embroidery department has enabled us to provide a superior service to our clients, allowing us to produce a variety of embroidery styles and, if required, to personalise every piece ordered, right down to the smallest of details – benefits our clients are increasingly seeking in order to offer the very best in apparel for their own customers.”

Marbas Golf, which produces bespoke collections and crested shirts for some of the world’s leading championship golf clubs and courses, is committed to delivering the highest quality garments by combining modern technology and first-rate craftsmanship.

“The secret to our quality products and their impeccable manufacture is embodied in our expert craftsmen and women who, thanks to their years of experience, are devoted to care and attention to detail, which have made Marbas Golf garments the quintessence of style and quality,” concluded David Kinsey.

With 30 years’ experience in producing fine-quality fabrics, together with Italian style and flair, Marbas – an accredited supplier of leading golf retail group TGI Golf – produces garments of unrivalled quality.
