News: Cord Control

Lavenham, a truly British heritage label, well known for its superior quality country clothing and horse rugs. The proud producers of the first nylon quilted horse blanket established in 1969 and is famous for its iconic quilted jackets which are still manufactured in Lavenham’s Suffolk based factory in the East of England, by a dedicated staff whose passion for the brand is unyielding.

Made from only the best quality raw materials, sourced within the British isles, whenever possible, Lavenham creates a genuinely British collection of traditional clothing with a country twist. The commitment to setting Quality and Durability as their primary objectives has made the brand highly coveted.

Broadening out from its country wear roots, today Lavenham offers clothing designed for a full lifestyle wardrobe – loved by the country dwellers for years but now equally home in the city.

This season Lavenham presents another example of two worlds meeting – The new elephant cords combine the latest trend on the catwalk and the quilted, heritage nature of Lavenham’s styling and workmanship.

Three new cord jackets were added to the collection, inspired by the surroundings in Suffolk and those who live there. One of them, the top quality “Sandon”, is a Harrington style jacket which features a soft shearling shawl collar, contrasting quilt lining and two hand warmer welt pockets. Also new, the “Craydon BB”, a classic Lavenham design in a 2” diamond quilt throughout with a grown on hood and the “Hundon”, a worker style jacket with a floating patch and chest pockets.

The fabrics and colours were chosen to draw out some of nature’s strongest tones and the innovative quilting and mixes of cloth give these classic Lavenham jackets a new edge.
