Appointment with HRH The Prince of Wales


We were very honoured to be invited as local business leaders to be invited to attend in a showcase of local manufacturers with HRH The Prince of Wales. In an event to showcase the best of British companies who export their goods all over the world.

Liz Basing, Regional Director of East of England, said: 

'Today puts a group of top Bedfordshire exporters in the spotlight and I'm delighted we have the opportunity to showcase these companies as a sample of the best the county has to offer.'

The Man Himself!

The event was held at Jordans Mill in Bedfordshire and showcased a variety of products from Beer at Charles Wells Brewery, to hats and fascinators at Walter Wright amongst others. 

We each had our own section to showcase a selection of our range to present to His Royal Highness- ours looked a lot like this...

We showcased a few of our Classic, Best selling lines as well as some of our new metallic foiled articles, to add a bit of sparkle!




A close up of some of the products made from our leather that we had on display. 
Special thank you to Dangerous 9 straps for the watch strap they made us for the event made from our Marsh 'Dirty Denim' leather. 

Head over to their site for more information on the Safari collection made from our leather and the beautiful, bespoke watch straps that they make.





Waiting for His Royal Highness to Arrive!...

Deep in Conversation!




It really was a pleasure to meet HRH The Prince of Wales, he seemed very genuinely interested in our business and came across very nice chap!




Charles had obviously been well briefed and new a lot about our business and was interested to ask a lot about the types of leather we manufacture and was very pleased to see that it was still a family run  business.




I wasn't sure whether to include this last picture as it's not the most flattering action shot! ....but it does capture a lovely moment!.....
