Welcome to Grey House England- A beacon of British ingenuity and craftsmanship and a pioneer in eco-friendly fashion, founded in August 2014.
Here at Grey House we aspire to push the boundaries of fashion and sustainability to provide you with a product that is of cutting edge design from distinctive materials.
Grey House England products are innovative, defined and high quality, and we would like to introduce you to the world’s first woven cardboard bag. We pride ourselves on this groundbreaking conception in both fashion and design. A one-of-a-kind design that is durable, waterproof and ecologically friendly. Each product is lovingly handmade in England from reinforced, recycled cardboard and natural jute.
Currently based in the heart of Leicestershire, our designs are inspired by both metropolitan and rural influences. We develop modern and unique designs using traditional machinery and techniques. Our 1942 Singer sewing machine, a throwback from the Second World War, is used to add a bespoke touch to unmistakably unique items. A combination of Britain’s industrial past and our ecological future, we pride ourselves on craftsmanship and the quality of our products.
At Grey House we use the traditional technique of hand-weaving to add flexibility and strength to our cardboard bags, thus every one of our bags is a unique work of art as well as a utility piece. Pay close attention to the textures and unusual structures of the Grey House bag and be inspired by the hybridity of this unexpected material and the uniqueness of this concept.
Grey House England hopes that during our journey we continue to work closely with local manufacturers and suppliers and to get the first product into launch this year, and we hope you will join us on this journey.
