Alongside our day to day business we occasionally take on special commissions and projects and this year we had the privilege of working with Estée Lauder & Jo Malone on their 2013 Christmas stockings. The brief was - 'Make it in England' - and we did. The bespoke striped fabric was woven in Suffolk, the velvet was dyed in Yorkshire, the laser cutting and embroidery were done in the Lace Market, Nottingham, the crystals applied in Kidderminster and finally made by hand by our wonderful machinists in Nottingham. The stockings are available in Jo Malone stores and concessions worldwide and online now. A global project, made in England.
