7th of December: Trevor Pickett
"The customer can create their own colour palate from various leathers. The board pictured is available in a choice of 9 pastel pigskin shades, customers can select these to match their home, their racing colours or simply their personalities. By giving the customer a hand in the design it adds more of a personal touch and makes the present more special."
The business was born in 1988, primarily selling premium quality, handmade leather goods. Briefcases, luggage, wallets, stud boxes and handbags fitted snugly into the tiny dark wooden alcoves of a small shop in the Burlington Arcade. A bespoke service was introduced, creating revivals of customer's old and beloved wallets or handbags and giving Pickett an original edge in the market.
For the past twelve years Pickett has offered a bespoke service, which goes from strength to strength offering the traditional skills of leather craftsmen. The service offers you the opportunity of customising any of Pickett's range of leather goods
Today, Pickett's trademark green and orange signage currently hangs above four of London's most beautiful retail spaces. Two sit facing each other in the Burlington Arcade; one is on Sloane Street; and the fourth is located at the Royal Exchange.
The most recent introduction of semi-precious jewellery has proved to be an astounding success. Customers can choose from numerous ready-made pieces, or create a bespoke item from an uncountable collection of semi-precious stones and colour combinations.
