C&W - An Uncompromising Commitment To Quality Since 1919
Made In Britain
With every Carr & Westley item purchased, you are supporting British Manufacturing and buying into a little bit of history. Our Carr & Westley products are designed and made at Bourne Mill, located in the village of Hadlow, deep in the Kentish countryside. The mill was built in the late 11th century and was used to grind and crush corn until just after the Second World War. The old grinding stones can still be seen outside the mill, which straddles the River Bourne.
Now it’s used as the Carr & Westley design studio, where we use traditional skills that have been passed down through generations to create quality garments. We’ve been here for 70 years and can't imagine working anywhere else.
We are proud to be a family run business full of hardworking, committed people. We pride ourselves on providing traditional clothing styles designed with the customer in mind, without compromising quality.
All of our workshop and office staff live in the surrounding area of Hadlow, Kent. The majority have grown up in the community, with Carr & Westley on their doorstep. C&W standards exist because they care. Our longest-serving employee has been with us for 35 years. We’re immensely proud of them all.
We are relentless in our aim to improve things for the better. By manufacturing in the UK we can develop high quality and innovative products that are only available at C&W, without having a detrimental impact on the environment. We believe in value and this is reflected in our focus on ‘price per wear'. Our garments are designed to last while maintaining their shape and colour for years to come.
As well as manufacturing our own clothing, we also carefully select styles from own-label brands that we believe our customers will enjoy. Ensuring a high level of quality is achieved by maintaining a close relationship with our suppliers.
Timeless pieces, classic silhouettes, pretty patterns and soft fabrics. Having worked with Poppy for many years, we are now delighted to offer their fantastic womenswear ranges exclusively to Carr & Westley customers. Poppy has become a customer favourite thanks to their famous soft jersey and easy-wear designs. Their coordinating ranges of tops, skirts and knits are perfect for everyday wear and seasonal occasions. For more information on Poppy clothing click here.
Most of all, we credit our success to our customers who have supported us through the years. Without you, we wouldn’t exist at all. So thank you all, and here’s to an exciting future.
To all of you, from all of us at Carr & Westley - Thank you and Happy Shopping!
