End of Manufacturing

Once the company grew to include stores in Jamaica and Barbados in addition to supplying the wholesale business, it became inevitable that some of the production would have to move to the USA. As the world changed, the business had to follow suit. Worldwide manufacturing shifted eastwards making the cost of production in Bermuda or the USA too expensive.

Polly's daughter, Suzannah, took charge of the buying and instead of producing her mother's designs, searched for other lines which represented the Calypso style.

The main Calypso store, based on Front Street, Hamilton, retains a small workroom and the services of a seamstress but instead of production, this is an alteration service for the benefit of customers. Signs of the past are still apparent with long cutting tables still very much in use within the stockrooms.
