139 – Launching a luxury British childrenswear brand – Rachael Attwood, Britannical

Rachael Attwood is the founder of luxury childrenswear brand Britannical, and a long-standing member of Make it British.
The business started life making outwear for babies and was originally called The Great British Baby Company.
The brand is known for its coats, which are now made for children up to 12 years old, and an adults line is in development too.
Britannical is an ethical brand with a strong commitment to sustainability, using British wool cloth for their coats. The brand has developed a strong aesthetic which plays with the idea of Britishness but in a way that does not take itself too seriously!

    I have enjoyed the ‘Make it British’ podcasts that I have listened to; all interesting and informative in their own right.
    However, Rachael Attwood’s story of her road to manufacturing a classic item really spoke to me on several levels.
    I particularily appreciated her defense of her products heritage, Britishness and price point against the cheap, inferior high street imports.
    Thanks for the listen.
