I am mad for anything to do with sewing but especially for haberdashery. Merchant and Mills have taken humble sewing supplies and made them incredibly desirable with their utilitarian and unfussy design and branding
I was really excited to be shown a preview of a short film about the owners of Merchant and Mills. It’s lovely to see the duo behind the brand and get a sense of their company ethos too.
Carolyn, the pattern designer in the company works with an old vintage singer sewing machine. It’s great to see a singer machine making clothes rather than adorning the windows of All Saints! The Merchant and Mills patterns are timeless simple shapes rather than fashion forward, meaning you’ll be able to wear your handmade creations for years.
Merchant and Mills are a British brand, and if you’d like to know more watch this great short film!
