New! Debbie Bryan Heritage Collection
From our studio in the heart of Nottingham's Historic Lace Market, Debbie Bryan Heritage design and commission exquisite collections that embrace traditional British industry. We use only the highest quality raw materials and skilled producers to create stunning products that will be treasured for generations to come.
Our beautiful table linen collection includes the very same laces that were used by the Royal School of Needlework at Hampton Court Palace to create the lace appliqué for Kate Middleton's exquisite Wedding Dress. Our Levers Lace designs were first created in 1845 and are meticulously crafted less than 8 miles from our studio by family run company now in its 9th generation.
Woven Irish Linen
Rich in heritage, quality and history, our linen fabric is woven in Northern Ireland and proudly bears the Irish Linen Guild 'carpet beater symbol' as it’s colloquially called -the mark of true Irish Linen. Our industry partner has been established since 1854 and uses fine raw materials, skilled weavers, advanced loom technology and careful finishing to create our fabrics. These are the foundation of our embroidered table linen.
Our intricate lace embroidery is produced just 500 metres from our Lace Market studio and is inspired by our fascinating collection of hand drawn ‘draughtsman’ drawings. The Lace Drawings were designed by the last surviving lace embroidery producer in Nottingham, established in 1910 and famously the creator of Lady Diana Spencer's Wedding Dress lace.
Traditional Hand Casting
Our unique brooches are individually hand made by Debbie Bryan in our Lace Market studio. A collector of heritage textiles, industry drawings, found objects and nostalgic imagery, Debbie carefully selects materials and then encapsulates them within an innovative and sustainable plant based resin. Each piece is hand finished!
Our luxury scarves are steeped in tradition, inspired by vintage patterns dating back to 1920. Collections are knitted on 100 year old lace knit machinery that sit along-side antique hand frame machines originally designed in 1589 by Reverend William Lee, inventor of the first knitting frame. 2012 marks the centenary of our industry partner - a 4th generation family owned knit specialist.
