Lavenham is an English manufacturer of superior quality country clothing and horse rugs. The brand was founded in 1969 and made the first nylon quilted horse rug, closely followed by matching jackets and waistcoats for the rider. The name quickly spread and Lavenham established a reputation of quality and durability through its nylon quilted products.
Today, people are still charmed by the brand for pretty much the same reasons as 40 years ago. Keeping with the commitment to in-house manufacturing, Lavenham oversees each stage of production in their Sudbury premises, from cutting, quilting to the final inspection of goods. The best raw materials are sourced within the British Isles, whenever possible, right down to the interlining used. This stamp of British quality and the classically English design have made Lavenham a highly covetable brand.
For Spring / Summer 12 Lavenham is introducing a Classic stock supported range in four of their most popular styles. For the seasonal collection they have slimmed down their iconic two inch diamond quilt to a one inch diamond and halved the weight of filling, which gives the garment a much lighter feel. The fabrics lend themselves perfectly to Spring /Summer and include 100% cotton Jersey, Linen / Cotton blends and shirting. This is also the first season Lavenham have introduced shirts and wind cheaters to the range.
