We are small-scale producers – identical twin sisters Catherine and Jane Elgar, who make a range of individual handmade garments in the UK.

We are fascinated by historical clothing and its construction. We love beautiful natural fabrics, and the functional detailing that fits each garment for its purpose.

We base our patterns on historical styles but we design them to suit 21st century people, sourcing quality fabric to ensure our products will stand the test of time.

We make these unique garments ourselves, steadily adding to our range and continuing to develop the styles we sell.

Catherine started the business at the end of 2015 and Jane joined her the year after.
