Emily took the opportunity during the pandemic to leave her job at Harrods to pursue her own brand and the business has gone from strength to strength as a result. We are delighted that she is supporting and championing ‘made in the UK’ with designs are produced in England in small quantities using natural dyes and high-quality silk twill fabric, embracing a no waste policy.

Congratulations Emily!
