Guy Fawkes night is almost here, so it’s time to wrap up and get the sparklers ready. This year, make sure you look good when standing around the Bon Fires with Etre’s new Autumn / Winter 2012 collection which draws on the understated but characterful traditions of British workwear.
The collection includes traditional fishermen’s sweaters, knitted to a pattern familiar to generations of fishermen’s wives and customised with motifs originating in the centuries-old fishing communities of Polperro and Staithes, alongside the innovative Etre Touchy and FIVEPOINT gloves conceived specifically for use with mobile devices.
Each piece is lovingly crafted in the British Isles, using responsibly sourced, time-honoured British materials. Leather gloves are made by a family business established in 1944, now one of the last surviving British glove manufacturers. Satchels and holdalls, crafted from the same high quality Melton wool as the jackets, are fabricated by a small Cornish leatherwork company.
