Sportaville were a London-based company who made mainly sports and leisurewear and were active at least between the 1950s to the 1970s. They were known for fun and vibrant novelty prints, including their own designs which were named and signed “by Sportaville” on the selvedge.
In 1961 Jacques Heim produced a sportswear line in conjunction with Sportaville.
