Coronavirus: Thank you for your continued support in these difficult times. Since our office and factory are in a rural area, our staff travel to work individually by car and we have enough space to maintain social distancing, so in consultation with our staff, we have decided to remain open for business unless government policy changes.
We are still able to despatch most of our products, however, the ones listed below (that are made by other manufacturers) will not be available for a while.

Tableware (Coasters & Placemats) and Wallpaper.

Our despatch times are normal, but Royal Mail & Parcelforce delivery times are varying depending on location - some parcels arrive next day and others are taking up to 10 days, which we have no control over.

We will update this message as anything changes.

More about this scene


Caption for Morley, Queens Street c1965: Looming over the town is the tower of the town hall, clearly more than a little influenced in its design by its more prestigious neighbour at Leeds. It was built in 1895 by G A Fox, with a portico formed of six composite columns. Until recent times textile mills jostled the building. As a part of the Heavy Woollen District of Dewsbury and the Spen Valley, Morley suffered during the slump of the 1930s. Bewteen 1924 and 1930 over 46,000 jobs were lost in the woollen industry, most of them in Yorkshire.
