Abbey England’s Showcase Success!

A scene of beautifully made products using high quality materials sourced from the UK.

As you may have heard, 2017 is the year we are celebrating our 35th anniversary and the 185th anniversary of our foundry. To help us celebrate this momentous occasion, we decided to put on a showstopper!

Thanks to a collection of customers, we were able to exhibit a vast range of British made products from aprons and coats, dog leads and collars, costumes from the TV drama Game of Thrones, luxury handbags and briefcases, to heavy harnesses and saddles which were seen by over 3,000 BETA International visitors.

Our showcase stand was received with both appreciation and excitement from visitors. Each product, told a story about the maker and the materials used and illuminated not only Abbey England’s diverse product range but the growing urged to make high quality products with components sourced from the UK.

“Not working or living close to Abbey England, it was the perfect place to see some of their products and supplies. Getting to see and feel things in the flesh is so much more informative and inspiring. I went away thinking how I can incorporate new components which I didn't know Abbey supplied!” said Ross Bell, Lodovica Leather who exhibited their LL Waspie Belt.

Abbey's Cake CuttingDuring the 3 day show Abbey’s MD, Richard Brown, gave a speech to the press stressing the importance of supporting British manufacturing. “It’s the work of films and so on which helps secure our factories for the future so that we can continue to supply the small workshops and craftspeople.”

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all those who visited our two stands and a special thanks to those customers who showcased a product.
