Company of Makers
Furniture & Textiles
We design and make products inspired by the British military’s influence on pop culture – Think of Sergeant Peppers or the MOD’s and the RAF roundel, then you’ll be in the right ball park. From trench coats to duffle coats, khaki to navy blue, sailor collars to camouflage fabric.
Our Hotwalls studio is in the heart of Old Portsmouth and is part of the city’s historic military fortifications. This unique heritage location based in the home of the Royal Navy is the perfect inspiration for our military inspired creations.
The purpose behind all this creativity is to help fund making workshops for ex-Service personnel and their families who are struggling with life on civvy street.
Funds raised through your purchase, contribute to workshops for those members of the Armed Forces community that have struggled with the transition to civilian life.
Our making workshops help with the adjustment to civvy street, teach new skills, build confidence and assist those entering the world of work. Our participants have gone on to find work, start a new business or commence further training.
