Heritage brands, what do they mean to you?

Although today the sun is shining in London, Andy Murray is the Wimbledon champion, there is a royal baby due soon and everyone is feeling good!

They tell us that we never entered a double dip recession like originally reported but are we really feeling that good about the financial future.

In times of trouble my eye always wander to the feel safe heritage brands, items that look well made, well crafted and british. They wont be the cheapest products out there but we know that we won’t have to replace it anytime soon.

In the case of a Mulberry bag we probably anticipate using it for years and the the leather will only get better. We can even pop a Smythson leather clad notebook into it.

When it rains as a nation we wrap up in Barbour jackets and put Hunter wellies on our feet. We feel

We are using Mossman trunks as furniture, they make great coffee tables and toy boxes but ultimately they remind everyone of days when people really travelled and before weight restrictions stopped us doing it in style. Glamorous and frivolous!

There isn’t anything quite as reassuring as a royal warrant and smell that reminds you of something delicious from the past, for me that  is Penhaligan’s bluebell.

I have looking through some of my favourite brands and things that I use daily and I have to say they feel and look solid, like they will still be here in years to come.
