Lavenham was founded in 1969 making the worlds first nylon quilted horse blanket. Their skilled and experienced workers still make all their products in their own factory in Suffolk England.
Lavenham have created a special project with Japanese designer/Artist Kosuke Tsumura (born in 1959). Kosuke Tsumura started working at the Issey Miyake Studio in 1984 where he developed his own brand “Final Home” under the Miyake’s guidance in 1991 before going independent in 1994. Conceptual in his thinking, Tsumura experiments with technology and fabric development while also designing with thoughts on the social impact. His designs and concepts have had a huge influence on other highly regarded designers and brands
