Over the years some would have you believe that we do not manufacture in Britain anymore, it is janeyB intention to show you that this is a myth.
To ensure a truly British product we at janeyB insist that most of our materials are also manufactured in Britain with the exception of some of our yarns, such as cotton, silk and cashmere. Wherever possible we will use yarns that are spun and dyed in Britain by British spinners and dyers. The vintage glass buttons that we use are sourced here in the UK but cannot guarantee that they are made in the UK. The other buttons used on the knitwear are made here in Britain.
janeyB works with British artisan hand knitters using only our luxury yarns and two knitting needles. The need for highly skilled hand knitters declined with mass produced machine knitwear becoming more profitable. janeyB aims to preserve this beautiful craft by bringing it into the current fashion realm. For us at janeyB nostalgia for knitting isn’t the drive, it’s the unrivalled skill and passion for the craft. janeyB blends this artisan skill with a contemporary twist to vintage British designs for a collection that ignites and showcases this traditional quality craftsmanship, giving you a unique and timeless piece.
The brand concept was created in 2017 and launched its first collection in the Autumn of 2018 with its A/W 18 Collection
