All our stockings and sacks are made from the same deluxe materials as my husband’s suits. And boy, let me tell you how fussy he is about those! Of course he wears the suits every day, and for twenty-four hours in a row on Christmas Eve, so it’s not surprising that he wants them to be as comfortable and as luxurious as possible.

So when you own one of our Christmas stockings or sacks, it’s like you’ve got a bit of Santa in your home.
We’ve been making his suits at the little workshop since 2008, when we created an in-store display in Santa’s honour for Selfridges. Since then we’ve made all the Santa and elf costumes for Selfridges.
