Made Beautifully Here – Saturday 3rd December, 2016

Upper Mills in Slaithwaite once again opens those big creaky gates to host ‘Made Beautifully Here’ on Saturday 3rd December 2016. From 10.30am to 5.30pm, you’re invited you to come and browse world-class products and sample local delicacies.

The brass band will play, you can get slightly sizzled on mulled wine and a bit podged on fancy pastries. Dress for sunshine or snow!

We’re excited to have friends from other British companies join us. Khunu make lovely woollies out of Yak’s wool, Walsh Sports make trainers in Bolton and Trakke will be there explaining how they manufacture their unique range of bags. Anna-Lisa Smith, a West Yorkshire based weaver and designer who creates minimal, colorful merino woven throws & cushions for the home is joining us again.

Olicana Textiles, who supply Liberty of London amongst others, will be sharing their space with talented friends who make soft furnishings using their beautiful fabrics, all available to buy on the day.

You’ll be able to see where we make McNair Shirts, try them on and even get measured up for a bespoke shirt. We will also be launching some brave new colours.

On the top floor Sgt. Smith will open their doors so you can get your hands on their fun range of kids T-shirts and gifts that are usually only available on-line. Also ceramics from Karen Howarth, glass by Louise Watson and prints from Dan Booth.
