Padfield’s commitment to British production extends beyond our London office address. We are committed to being authentically British. From our English craftsmanship and British tanned leather, to our London based studio and timeless European style. Padfield chooses to work with and support UK businesses, makers and suppliers whenever possible. If we cannout source a key component locally we will include the provenance of the component on the relevant product specifications tab. Padfield’s commitment to authenticity 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 leather 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 a high quality environment.
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 is the most sustainable option. In choosing to work exclusively with British tanned leather Padfield is utilising hides from farming that might otherwise go to waste. The where: Padfield’s UK production is governed by the highest environmental standards. The who: Padfield artisans work in a high quality environment in Somerset England and earn fair UK wages.
With sustainability a key principle, Padfield also chooses to source and craft locally to minimise our CO2 footprint. We are also a zero plastic 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. Padfield supports charities working to regenerate natural British landscapes Learn more.
