The time has not come
We’re delighted to say that Village England will continue.
At the end of last year, we wrote an email announcing the closure of Village England.
While our December email was heartbreaking to write and send, the response to it was overwhelming. It reminded me that we had achieved what we set out to achieve - a lovely village full of wonderful people. From customers, old suppliers, manufacturing partners, photographers, videographers, PRs, and graphic designers, so many people reached out, sad at the thought of letting it go.
One of them offered real, practical assistance - a proper lifeline. And we’re delighted to say that we’ve agreed on a way forward.
So, we’re delighted to say that Village England will continue.
The biggest changes will be behind the scenes, although you'll notice a few too (when you team up with your manufacturing partner it can only mean same Village England quality at an even better price). For the most part though, Village England will continue pretty much as normal.
We’re going to send out a few emails as normal while we get next seasons bags into production (which we’re so delighted to do - this next collection is the best we’ve ever done) and while we sort out our new warehouse. So please do bear with us while we’re unable to ship anything from the site.
