Mackenzie & George – I couldn’t do this kind of series without including them!
I have the absolute privilege of working with Mackenzie & George… which is more than a little useful given my addiction to the company’s hats, brooches, keyrings and leather accessories. But more about that another time!
Mackenzie & George’s stunning products are an essential part of anyone’s country ‘kit’, but more than just looking gorgeous, everything is beautifully made to last. The leather belts are crafted in the company’s Shropshire workshop, the beautiful feather brooches are made by Wendy Goode and are something else… it’s all lovely. What’s more, Chris and Melanie Clarihew who are co-founders, are some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet, and the team are so lovely too. Now, over to Mackenzie & George.
How long have you been exhibiting at The Game Fair?
Since 2013, our first full year of doing shows. We started in Rural Crafts and then took the decision to go outside two years ago, and so pleased we did!
Which product are you most excited to show the people visiting The Game Fair?
We are launching our dog collar range so that’s going to be really exciting; it is something we are asked for all of the time, and means we get to meet some gorgeous four legged customers as well!
What’s your newest product? What makes it special?
We’ve got quite a few new pieces at the moment. Along with the dog collars which are all made in our signature vegetable tanned leathers, and have personalisation or branded shotgun cartridge options, we also have our new solid brass cuffs which we are doing in an exciting range of colours and
textures – I completely adore them! Then we also have our new Marlborough belt and clutch, and keyring all featuring our branded M&G solid brass shotgun
Which product do you expect to be a best seller?
The Wycombe is an everyday classic that has that touch of shooting inspired design, works for men and women and looks beautiful personalised!
If you could sum up Mackenzie & George in a sentence, what would it be?
Timeless design that lasts.
Do you have a typical customer? Or do you find your products have a broad appeal for all ages?
I don’t think we do, I think quality speaks to people of all ages.
What are you most excited about for this year’s event?
Our dog collar competition! The prosecco stand & seeing all our lovely customers!
Where can visitors find you at the event? Are there any special offers they should know about?
You’ll find us on stand F704. Yes! We will have show discounts, lucky dip scratch cards
with each purchase, an amazing dog competition AND a free glass of bubbly – what more could you ask for?
