Our founder grew up in Macclesfield, historical home of the silk industry. So it was natural for Somerville to support local, British manufacturing.
Collections are conceived in London and then prints drawn in our studio.
And we commission mills in Macclesfield and Brighton to take our images and use their technical skills to print or dye the silk.
Local pattern cutters work hand in hand with us to make samples.
We feel lucky that our garments are sewn in England by highly skilled seamstresses.
