Carrier Company prides itself on sourcing labour and materials as locally as possible. Everything is made by hand in Norfolk, with the large majority of goods produced within 15 miles of Church Farmhouse. Since quality and durability is also fundamental to what we do, we have recently switched to sourcing all our own material. Nowhere is this more important than in the cotton drill we use for our clothing since our rural workwear is increasingly the cornerstone of our company. Our 100% cotton drill is now dyed exclusively for us in England and, crucially, we are now using a heavier 305g per square metre fabric. All this goes to ensure that our clothes last and only improve with age.
The last two years have brought significant changes to Carrier Company as we have sought to renovate and overhaul our website as well as bring our brand to a new audience both in the UK and abroad. We have recently taken on new retail partners to help widen our following, namely Hardy Amies here in the UK and Beams in Japan. For our new partners and their customers, we decided to put together this “Mood Movie”- a collection of images of our products and our heritage in Norfolk to better give an idea of just who we are and what we do.
All our steel products are hand-forged for us in North Norfolk by one septuagenarian individual, Stanley Wells. We’ve been desperate to get him on film but since he is notoriously camera-shy we decided to do the next best thing and show one of his brilliant fire pipes in use. There is no better fireside tool for both starting fires and blowing dying embers back into a blaze.
