Summer Weddings

Summer Weddings

We are always honored when friends and customers include Ledbury in their wedding. We figure that the bride has the final say on the groom’s attire and if the fiancé approves of Ledbury at the altar we must be doing at least something right. This spring and summer we have kitted-out a wedding party nearly...

Early Believers

Early Believers

When we started Ledbury the market was hovering around 6,000 and a financial apocalypse appeared to be at the doorstep.

It could have been blind faith, a...

Meet Our Friends

When we first moved back from London to start Ledbury we spent the better part of two months working from my family farm in the Northern Neck of Virginia. Bordering the bay, at the mouth of the Great Wicomico River, the farm was where I spent most of my summers growing up. Some of my...

Premiere Vision

Premiere Vision

Great fabric is not the only perk to exclusively using European fabric mills. There are also the obligatory trips to Italy and France that are difficult requirements of the job. So last month it was back to London and then Paris for Premiere Vision and three days, 10,000 fabric swatches and some late nights with...
