Best of British Craftmanship

British craftsmanship is having a moment, with an increasing number of brands championing locally sourced and hand-made quality goods.
To celebrate we’ve selected some of the most iconic British heritage brands to showcase.

Joseph Cheaney & Sons

As a heritage slow fashion brand, producing some of the finest footwear in the world, Joseph Cheaney & Sons are dedicated to British craftsmanship. The brand may be over 135 years old, but the contemporary manner in which the brand is conducted is continually evolving. They keep the traditional shoemaking techniques that contribute to making a quintessentially English Goodyear welted shoe, yet simultaneously adopt new innovations and technologies. Their Autumn Winter 2021 collection is now available and includes the Men’s Tiger Moth II Military Style Mid Calf Derby Boot in Whiskey Kudu Leather, £425 (pictured)

Bentley Motors

From the moment the first Bentley was created in 1919, the human touch has been vital to the company’s philosophy of unrivalled craftsmanship and performance. At the Bentley factory in Crewe, thousands of highly skilled craftspeople are involved in crafting the cars by hand - from the veneers, embroidery and leather inside to the paintwork that adorns the exteriors. The recently released Odyssean Edition is a limited edition option for customers ordering the Flying Spur Hybrid with exclusive interior and exterior styling including materials such as open-pore Koa veneers, Piano Linen veneers and 100% British wool tweed panels.

Clive Christian Furniture Co.

Clive Christian Furniture coined the statement kitchen and for nearly 50 years, from its workshop in Lancashire, it has been designing and crafting the world’s most opulent homes. Now, for the first time in a decade, the brand is releasing a new collection. Entitled ‘The New Classical’, the cabinetry - pioneering in its design and use of materials - embodies the spirit of classic Clive Christian Furniture design but in a bold, contemporary way.


For almost a century AGA has been bringing life to the kitchen. The company has deep roots in Shropshire - the birthplace of industry – and it is here that all AGA cookers are still made today. AGA takes honest, hardworking materials and engineers them into products that look great and are made to last. It is rare for AGA to collaborate, but the brand has recently announced the launch of an exciting new-look AGA cooker with Taylor Howes Design, set to be unveiled on the cusp of the AGA cooker’s 100th birthday.

Alexandra Llewellyn

From her famed backgammon boards and poker sets to exquisite games tables and card boxes, Alexandra’s beautifully crafted, intricately detailed games turn play into something magnificent. Using materials of peerless quality, always with sustainable origins, Alexandra collaborates with leading craftspeople to realise her award-winning backgammon boards, which are canvases for meticulous marquetry, delicate hand-painting and bewitching print. Her most recent collection captures the thrill of exotic adventures on a richly detailed wood marquetry poker set, backgammon board and a double cards box.


Founded in 1781, the House has historically been recognised as one of the world’s pre-eminent luxury goods brands with pieces made in Asprey’s workshops by their inhouse silversmiths. The British retailer, famed for its jewellery, leather and silver, has a substantial client base of members of royalty, heads of state and world-renowned performers. Recent examples of Asprey’s work include the racing car cocktail shaker, inspired by the vintage racing cars from the 1950s.


The iconic British brand is the largest manufacturer of luxury leather goods in the UK as a 600-strong team of craftsmen and craftswomen make 50% of their bags in their two factories in Somerset. To celebrate the brand’s 50th anniversary this year Mulberry have released joyful collaborations with three of the most visionary designers of their generation – Priya Ahluwalia, Nicholas Daley and Richard Malone (pictured).
