About EKW

EKW started its origins as a clothes-manufacturing firm in 1958 and since then has built its reputation in the clothing-manufacturing industry locally and internationally. Formerly known as Eagle Knitwear Company Limited, the company was set up by the Aquilina brothers, Frank, Charles and Emmanuel.


In 1998, Frank Aquilina’s son and present chairman of the company, Alex Aquilina, transformed the company into a work wear clothing industry leader producing a large variety of quality garment and knitwear for domestic requirements. Today, EKW is synonymous as the leading brand in custom-made clothing, and continues to diversify and enhance its portfolio of products and services to ensure an efficient and reliable ‘one-stop’ shop for bespoke clothing designs to its clients.


Throughout the decades EKW have produced garments for international labels such as Next, C&A, Miss Selfridge, Stanley Adams, Mary Quant, Ann Taylor, Wallis and many more. 



The Republic of Malta (a member of the European Union since 2004) is a small and densely populated three-island archipelago, strategically located in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, part of Southern Europe. This archipelago has been inhabited since around 5200 BC. Since old times, dating back to the fall of ancient empires, Malta has always been known for its strategic geographical position, which has been ruled and fought over by various sea-faring powers of the centuries.
