Made in Britain from the web this week: Fox Brothers | Sunspel | Harris Tweed
Fox Flannel: Factory Visit (Permanent Style)
The Fox Flannel mill has been busy with visitors of late; first Make it British took a trip down to Somerset to meet Deborah Meaden and Douglas Cordeaux, then the Tweed Pig stopped by for a chat. This week Simon Crompton from Permanent Style blog reports back with some great photos of the place and news of its impending move back to the original weaving shed.
On the 1st December Sunspel will be one of the first British companies to embrace mass customisation when it launches its Sunspel Handcrafted range. Customers will be able to choose between a selection of shapes, styling details, colours and fits to create their own one-of-a-kind T-shirt, in the same way that Nike iD allows the wearer to customise their trainers. All of the T-shirts in the range will be made in the Sunspel factory in Long Eaton, Nottinghamshire.
Harris Tweed: From Land to Street by Lara Platman (Manufacture & Industry)
Make it British loved this book when they saw it a few months ago. Now M&I have done a great review of this beautiful publication that marks the 100th Anniversary of the Harris Tweed Orb trademark – if you haven’t already bought a copy maybe this will convince you to do so.
