Made In Grey Britain
MADE IN GREY BRITAIN WITH LOVE
If there’s any of you who have been reading the blog since around 2010, you may recall my collaborations with Scottish label Jaggy Nettle. We created many things together, most of which is still in my wardrobe, well worn and well loved. A family business, ran by the lovely Emily and Jason, they are the nicest brand I have ever had the pleasure of working with in my years of blogging.
Jaggy Nettle has been dormant for some time though because they have been focusing on launching an exciting new unisex brand called Made In Grey Britain. The core of MIGB is beautifully made, seasonless staples that are built to last, such waxed cotton parkas and jackets, luxurious cashmere accessories and sneakers.
However Made In Grey Britain I would say is actually more of a concept than just a brand. They bought a mill in the Scottish Borders which they’ve been tirelessly working to renovate and bring back to life. Ultimately, the mill will be used as a space not only for their own brand, but for other creatives to come and use the facilities, such as their impressive printing press. A creative hub of sorts. They also hope to stock other British brands on their website, when it eventually launches.
More exciting though is the fact they have opened a physical store selling MIGB and Jaggy Nettle. The shop is located in the small town of Lauder in the Scottish Borders, which is about 30 miles outside of Edinburgh (I don’t have the address but I suspect Lauder is tiny so you shouldn’t be able to miss it if you visit). The Kingdom is hoping to take a trip to visit the shop at some point soon to do some Christmas shopping.
So if you find yourself in that neck of the woods, pop in and say hello. I’m sure you’ll be made very welcome.
