Why did I choose a local manufacturer? It was a simple decision for me. I have developed products for manufacture abroad in the past and did not enjoy the process.

I’ve seen the manufacturing process; seen the care put into every stitch; seen the quality of the product that results; spoken to the people making them. I can design and manufacture in small, sustainable batches, adding new designs when it feels right to do so. Finally, it’s important to me to keep jobs in the local economy and minimise transport miles.
