If you are going to buy knitwear it should be of timeless design,
knitted for you by hand, just like your grandmother would have made.
I believe a good scarf should make you feel as if you've been wrapped

Hurd & Co hand make quality garments to be worn over and over
ignoring the pressure of fast fashion trends in favour of slow sustainable fashion.
Our distinctive country style is heavily influenced by the beautiful surrounding Somerset countryside
where we live.
The collections are designed with four basic considerations Comfort, Practicality, Simplicity & Style.
Being a country girl I have an appreciation for the natural world and felt this needed to be reflected in the business model.
A key focus for me is the promotion of natural, biodegradable yarn, sustainability & ethical production.
Striving to provide a transparent production line allowing you, our fab customer, to be reassured that Hurd & Co is a conscious thinking, ethical brand.
Our efforts were recognised by The United Nations, when , in February 2019 we were invited to be part of their Global Goal installation at the top fashion show Pure London.
As a result of the show, in September 2019, Hurd & Co won the BTAA Fashion Accessory of the Year Award for the Made in Britain category for our womens scarf. We were also nominated in 2020 for Gift of the Year for our childrens multi wear capelet.

I am sure we all have a much deeper appreciation for our mental health with the recent Covid lock down experience.
