For our Sheepskin Product range we have chosen manufacturer with years of experience and knowledge as well as great credentials of manufacturing excellence. 100% of the sheepskin products we have chosen to stock are made right here in the UK, many in the same factories by the same people for the past 30 years.
In Glencroft Every British sheepskin rug is hand finished and quality checked by Richard using a steady hand. Where possible every offcut and waste material is reused – either giving to local people and organisations for free, or using for items such as our sheepskin bobble hats or stuffing sheepskin footstools.
Richard has worked in the wool and sheepskin industry since the 1960s and has seen massive changes in British manufacturing over the past 60 years. He remembers when it used to take a week to visit all the different woollen mills across the North of England – we still work with some of the few remaining. Building for the future His son Edward now also runs the business, ensuring we keep to our traditional business values whilst using all the latest modern technology to best serve our customers and keep them warm and cosy in natural materials.
