Offers from Artisans in British Luxury

Wednesday, June 10th, 2020

I want to thank you for your support during these extraordinary times.

It has taken many years to develop the skills and craftsmanship in myself and my team to reach a world class level.  At the end of the day, we are simply a cluster of local people working together in a family business and times like these remind me of how fragile it is for artisans.  Genuine luxury and artisan skills set the bar high and the constant investment and improvement has a high cost base.

In support of such artisans and luxury businesses, a few of us have gathered together some special offers for you to try or share.  I look forward to seeing you in person again.

Best wishes,
