012 – Edward Sexton, Glencroft Countrywear – Why we Support the Independent Retailers

Today I am interviewing Edward Sexton from Glencroft Countrywear, a company that have been members of Make it British from the very early days. Glencroft is a family business selling British wool and sheepskin products, as well as traditional country wear such as tweed hats. The business was started by Edward’s father, Richard Sexton, who still to this day trims all of the sheepskin rugs himself by hand.
