The Shackleton Design & Manufacturing Company creates superb quality knitwear, outerwear, boots and accessories – all inspired by the great early 20th Century Antarctic explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton.
The great man’s granddaughter Alexandra Shackleton is a part owner of the business, and its brand ambassador to Shackleton enthusiasts around the world.
The company began life as a musical instrument manufacturer, and continues to make banjos in Britain’s only banjo factory, in Norwich, Norfolk.
Its other products are almost entirely British made, including: knitwear from Leicestershire (with British wool); boots from Northamptonshire; outerwear from the midlands; shirting from London.
Shackleton products are available on its own website, and from a growing number of premium stockists, including the Natural History Museum and The Dandy Lab.
