My family has worked for the company for generations. I think my great grandfather had some connection to the original founder but I have photos of my grandad and my mother working here. I still have the scissors my grandad used and my mum has only just stopped doing the intricate stitching. Even if her eyesight hadn’t started to fail, obviously she would have taken a step back. And now me. I like to think I channel their perfectionism, their love of the detail and the heritage. I sit at my keyboard like they sat at their workbench: a craftsman.
