Merchant & Mills

 

Merchant & Mills

Carolyn Denham and Roderick Field began Merchant & Mills in 2010 with the intention of bringing style and purpose to the overlooked world of sewing.  We were determined to include the steadfast makers and menders who had continued regardless of current trends, in supplying patterns, fabrics and tools that allowed the creation of a desirable functioning wardrobe. We offered a viable, wearable alternative to the increasingly indistinguishable options of the high street.

New patterns and products emerge, never rushed to market, but slowly developed to be exemplary, desirable and pragmatic.
Our ethos is to respect the roots of sewing, from trade to home dressmaking, as we enable and inspire more people to find the satisfaction of simply making. To this end, we have published three instructive, illustrated books.

Carolyn Denham has a degree in Fashion design and has worked in New York, Italy and London.  Roderick Field is a respected photographer with works in the National Portrait Gallery.
