sabichi story

are you sitting comfortably?


At Sabichi, we serve up an intoxicating recipe of design, development and manufacture that define products destined for every room of the home. In 1994, the founder of the business began developing and selling bathroom products to a number of UK high street retailers. Today we design, develop, produce and import (as well as export!) homewares under not only the Sabichi brand, but also as private label brands. The Sabichi brand has a fresh and contemporary handwriting offering clean and modern core basics along with vibrant and cheerful colours. We now work with over 30 of the high street’s favourite brands and retailers, and have developed a product portfolio of over 1000 SKUs, and growing. We supply products to the home departments of UK retailers, as well as supplying our Sabichi branded products to countries as far away as Dubai and South Africa. With a well-developed sourcing infrastructure, our retail partners rely on our expertise to develop and deliver design led lifestyle products at affordable prices. At Sabichi, celebrating our 22nd year in business, we pride ourselves on our service levels and being a trustworthy and honest family business.

Our appeal is broad. Customers start buying great value homeware with us when starting out.

Our customers then build their Sabichi range with us as they settle in. Perhaps the family grows in size and the home certainly becomes a more focussed part of everyday life.
