Padfield’s commitment to British production extends beyond our London office address. From our English craftsmanship and British tanned leather, to actively choosing to work with and support UK businesses, makers and suppliers whenever possible. Padfield’s commitment to being authentically British means that our customers know we are offering them the very best of British made luxury.
Quality over Quantity
Padfield prioritises designing and crafting sophisticated styles in timeless colours, to ensure that our accessories are as relevant tomorrow as they are today. It takes several highly skilled artisans to handcraft every Padfield leather accessory. By choosing to tan our leather and craft every accessory from start-to-finish in England, we can be sure that Padfield accessories are made to the highest standards by skilled artisans working in high quality environments.
Padfield believes that sustainability has to be both social and environmental. It is the whole picture of how, where and who that must be considered.
The how: Padfield believes that sourcing and crafting locally in England is the most sustainable option. We are doing so by choosing to work exclusively with British tanned leather to utilise hides from British farming that might otherwise go to waste. Crafting entirely in England Padfield is championing British craftsmanship and consciously minimising our CO2 footprint.
The where: Padfield’s UK production is governed by the highest social and environmental standards.
The who: Padfield’s valued and skilled artisans work in high quality environments in England earning fair UK wages.
What else is Padfield doing… Padfield is also proud to be a plastic free company. To eliminate plastic and throwaway packaging, all Padfield accessories are delivered in high quality recyclable gift boxes. We hope that you will choose to keep your box, to store your Padfield when not in use. Alternatively, please re-purpose the box to store other precious possessions.
Going a step further, Padfield was founded to be more than beautiful British accessories. We feel strongly about leaving a green footprint and are doing so by supporting charities working to regenerate natural British landscapes. Learn more.
