A STITCH IN TIME - A RICH HERITAGE
A world where luxury and versatility are never compromised. Where our expertise meets your individuality. A world where our craft meets your story.
We endeavour to make the ordinary extraordinary and the everyday timeless. Rooted in deep heritage, we represent over 125 years of British luxury leather goods at their most refined, with an enduring dedication to unrivalled craftsmanship. Smythson has long catered to the highly discerning, from European Royalty and the Indian Maharajas to the likes of Grace Kelly, Katharine Hepburn, Claudette Colbert and Vivien Leigh. Influential figures, leading extraordinary lives, from Sigmund Freud to Sir Winston Churchill, recognised the timeless purity of our creations.
Today, that legacy continues – a distinctly unique, extraordinary brand catering to extraordinary people.
A MARK OF DISTINCTION
We are the proud holder of three Royal Warrants, having been granted a Royal Warrant from Her Majesty The Queen in 1964, HRH The Prince of Wales in 1980, and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh in 2002. While holding Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother’s Warrant (in existence until 2007) Smythson was one of only eight companies in the world to hold all four simultaneously.
Royal Warrants are a highly prized mark of recognition of individuals or companies who have supplied goods or services for at least five years to the Households of the British Royal Family. They demonstrate service, quality and excellence of the highest calibre.
