Wanting to take influence from my hometown and the history and heritage within the clothing industry that it brings, ‘Lombes’ is inspired by a revolutionary named John Lombe who commissioned the build of Lombe’s Mill, a historic former silk mill which marks the southern end of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site (currently known as Derby Silk Mill).

John Lombe copied the design for the machines used for spinning large quantities of silk, during a period spent in Italy, working in the silk industry. His machines were capable of producing far greater quantities of silk and provided serious competition for the Italians – something which they weren’t very happy about!

Lombe’s was accused of being one of the first example of industrial espionage and died in 1722 in mysterious circumstances, believed to have been poisoned by an Italian assassin in retribution for stealing trade secrets.

The ‘Lombes’ logo takes influence from the original Lombe’s Mill, a time of clothing revolution within Derby,  as well as the River Derwent in which it sits.

The main priority with ‘Lombes’ is to manufacture as much of the range as possible from right here in the UK, sourcing supporting materials from other independent companies. All of our releases are strictly limited edition – when you wear ‘Lombes’ you know you’re wearing a piece which won’t be mass-produced.
