Glencroft is a family business that focuses on producing a range of classic British clothing and accessories made from natural fibres including real leather bags, lambskin gloves, sheepskin hats, British Wool and Harris Tweed clothing. We work with a range of local mills, factories and tanneries to create our unique range.
Based in a 200 year old converted cow barn in Clapham in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. We take inspiration from the rural life and stunning scenery that surrounds us, from our durable crossbody leather bags and real lambskin gloves, to our 100% British hand finished sheepskin rugs.
To this day we use the same philosophy as when we first started to manufacture our products, responsibly sourcing high quality materials and creating timeless products that last; nothing fancy, just honest, decent clothing, or ‘proper’ as we say in Yorkshire.
Over 90% of our products are made right here in the UK, many in the same factories by the same people for the past 30 years. The other 10% is made in mainland Europe, again by people and factories that we know, trust and spend time with every year.
Every British sheepskin rug is hand finished and quality checked by Richard using a steady hand. Where possible we reuse every offcut and waste material – either giving to local people and organisations for free, or using for items such as our sheepskin bobble hats or stuffing our sheepskin poufs.
