Since 1789 we have established a reputation that is second to none throughout the World for supplying goods and services to Church and Clergy of the finest possible quality.
This reputation has been built upon the trust, appreciation and satisfaction of many generations of customers and we feel sure that when you browse through the following pages you will also wish to entrust us with your instructions.
Inevitably any representation of the services we offer is limited by the medium and we are not able to illustrate all the vast range of goods and products we offer. This is especially pertinent within the Church Furnishings range of products where there are endless permutations of styling, color, design and techniques.
Our highly skilled and dedicated employees take pride in producing virtually all the products available on-line. All our clothing items are individually created by very experienced tailors, seamstresses and cutters based at our Exeter factory.
Within this extensive site our textiles department embroideresses, design, sew and complete intricate new commissions as well as repair and restore ancient vestments and frontals. These traditional skills are supplemented by modern computer generated machine embroidery carefully prepared to give an exceptional representation of an alternative to hand crafted embroidery.
The silversmiths based within the Exeter complex produce metalwork of an unparalleled quality, whether it be standard items on sale within this site, renovations to metalwork often over a century old or special commissions. These metal crafts are complimented with a range of products made in the "steel" city of Sheffield, these alternatives offer excellent value to the hand crafted items made in our workshop.
We pride ourselves in sourcing materials we use from UK manufacturers whenever possible. All our clothing and textiles fabrics are woven within the European Union, mostly in the United Kingdom. The only exception is polyester and cotton, which is manufactured in the Far East. Our pure cotton poplin is grown in Egypt, but woven, dyed and finished within Europe.
We trust however, that you will be encouraged to place your order for those items we do feature and to advise us if you require detailed information on any particular product that is not included in this representation.
We are here to provide a proper and fitting professional service for all your needs and will welcome your enquiries.
