Our team of craftsmen and women work form our headquarters in Northamptonshire, where they beaver away to create the beautiful notebooks, desk accessories and gifts you see on our site. Northamptonshire is the home of British shoe trade, where fine shoes have been manufactured throughout the ages. The county was the home of some of the finest tanneries & shoe companies in the country. Sadly many of these have now closed down with a few notable exceptions such as Churchs, Crocket & Jones & Cheaney’s who still craft some of the finest shows in the world. As shoe manufacture moved abroad and workers were made redundant, so many skills were lost.
