Glencroft Countrywear

About

Glencroft was established in the Yorkshire Dales in 1987 as a British brand of high quality wool, tweed and sheepskin traditional country clothing for all ages.

Glencroft is a family business based in Clapham, North Yorkshire. We are primarily a trade and wholesale business supplying shops all over the UK and internationally, however you can now also purchase directly from us via our retail website (linked in our profile).

Richard and Justina started the business in 1987 with the goal of providing high quality British countrywear and woollen and sheepskin goods. This goal still lies at the heart of the business, as do Richard and Justina who continue to run the business 30 years later alongside their son Edward, who became partner in 2013. Our vision for the business is to continue providing high-quality natural British goods to retailers worldwide, whilst also maintaining our quality British brand, Glencroft.

Our brand was set up to reflect our British and Yorkshire heritage, as well as our close links to Scotland where many of our loyal trade customers are based- many of our materials are Scottish (including Harris Tweed) and we incorporate many Scottish designs into our products.

Richard Sexton & Co are members of the British Wool Marketing Board and are committed to using British Wool wherever possible. Sheepskin for hats is sourced from a British tannery where possible (about half of all hat manufacture). Other sheepskin is sourced from Europe, mainly Iceland or Portugal). Genuine Harris Tweed woven in the Outer Hebrides is used for a selection of hats, handbags and on some jumpers. All labels are manufactured in either the UK and Turkey by British label firms. Where Richard Sexton & Co has purchased packaging this has been made in the UK. All boxes used for our wholesaling business are being reused, no new boxes are purchased.
