NURSEY SHEEPSKIN is a British sixth-generation family business dating back to 1846.
Throughout the company's long history we have prided ourselves on producing high-quality, handmade sheepskin and leather products here in Suffolk, England for our loyal customers.
The Nursey family has a wealth of experience making luxury, sheepskin and leather products with James and his fiancée, Marcella, being the latest, and sixth, generation to run the business.
Today, Nursey Sheepskin still applies the same principle to “work only with the finest sheepskins and raw materials.”
Once delivered to our workshop in Suffolk, the sheepskins and leather are matched for colour and texture by eye and touch before being transformed into sheepskin and leather slippers, hats, headbands, bags, gloves and mittens by skilled craftsmen and women.
Cut by hand, our products are built to last and we hope there will be something for all the family in our collection available here, purely online, since we closed our factory shop in 2014.
Like most British manufacturing companies, we have had to adapt to a changing retail environment and we now operate solely as a boutique online business, selling a select range of our most beautiful luxury items including sheepskin slippers, hats, bags, gilets and mittens.
Based out of Bungay, Suffolk, we only use ethically sourced skins which are a by-product of the food industry.
We truly believe we are unique compared to other sheepskin businesses. Who else can boast a client base including most famously icon 'Del Boy', portrayed by Sir David Jason, in the hit BBC comedy 'Only Fools And Horses' in which he regularly wore his famous Nursey sheepskin coat?
More recently in 2010, we were named winners of the Traditional Business category in the Countryside Alliance Awards. We are proud that the enduring quality and reputation of our fine products are recognised.
Unlike other sheepskin and leather businesses who claim to be “British”, we make everything here in Suffolk. Buy a luxury Nursey Sheepskin product and be confident you are "buying British".
