About

Fit For
Purpose

It’s what we’ve done since 1969: ensure whatever we make does its job without complication. It’s what drove Mrs Elliot, our founder, to produce the world’s first nylon quilted horse rug and how each product is designed today.

We predominantly work with British cloth manufacturers, renowned for their durability and quality, and the same is true of the wadding we use in our quilting, which comes from the North of England and is made of 65% recycled fibres.

Made In

Suffolk

Every single Lavenham item is still made just 6 miles from the location of our very first factory.

The passion we have for your Lavenham products doesn’t stop at the factory gates - we offer a full Repair Service, where the same hands who originally crafted your gilet or jacket will repair it, if it needs it.

Coal Drops Yard

Coal Drops Yard, the Heatherwick Studio-designed shopping quarter in London’s King’s Cross, will be home to our first shop, where we will offer curated pieces from our Japanese collection and one-off designs unique to the shop, alongside the full Lavenham range.

Built in the 1850s, the Coal Drops were originally for receiving and sorting coal as it arrived from the north of England by train. Remarkably, the grand brick viaducts, cobbled streets and rich ironwork have survived, and are today being brought back to life.
