We pleat by hand, and develop our embroideries here, in London. Smocking was invented in England in the Middle Ages, and was often worn by labourers. This fine, hand-embroidery technique is back once again in the luxury market, and in recent years has mostly been developed overseas, due to the high costs.
We aim to recover this tradition, to hand craft this exquisite embroidery here, where this tradition began. We believe that the process and the experience of designing and developing is part of the experience of luxury.
