The Perfect Fit you could say!…but did you also know that...
 
All of our products are 100% British  -  Designed, Sourced & Manufactured.
 
And when you'd like to speak to us...
 
It's Not A Call Centre  -  You're speaking to us, directly at the factory.
 
And if you purchase any one of our products...
 
They're NOT thrown into postal bags by exploited staff somewhere in a sprawling warehouse  -  Each garment is folded & packed with love, fresh & direct from our own factory's production floor.
 
And as for our product reviews...
 
They're 100% genuine, written by our customers & ONLY by our customers, who generously give their precious time to tell others about their experience.
 
It's so much more than just about making lovely knickers & lingerie, everything matters if you expect...

Vintage Floral With A Gentle Touch August 13, 2017 09:27

As we inevitably edge away from summer, not that we've seen much of one here in Manchester, our thoughts here at Kinky HQ are ever more focused on the arrival of autumn and boy, have we got some stunning things lined up for you!
However right here and now, we're in that in between, transitional period, where our bright & colourful collections are still in high demand but it's time to introduce a selection of deeper, richer tones as temperatures begin to cool.
So being the busy beavers that we are, this week we'd like to introduce you to four new entries we've just added to the collection.
The first being a beautiful 'Vintage Floral' limited edition soft knit jersey strappy cami top & classic knicker.
The fabric's locally sourced & printed cotton & elastaine jersey and is so completely versatile, we'll be shocked if it doesn't become one of your firm favourites!
In a slightly heavier weight fabric, with a little more stretch thanks to the higher elastaine content, you'll find the cami more supportive than some of our other pieces, which makes it more adaptable as it can be worn as underwear, sleepwear or even outerwear with a pair of cool denim jeans or shorts to complete that timeless boho look.
Second on this week's new menu... the luxurious, beautiful, heavenly, sensual & utterly sublime, gentle touch strappy cami top & classic knicker sets,  ...and these are words our customers have used to describe this fabric!
Formerly known as 'butter soft' this British made fabric has to be worn in order to be fully appreciated.
Matched with our newly re-designed & produced contrasting edge lace in three fresh contemporary, opulent jewel inspired combinations -
Crystal Grey & Quartz  I  Dark Ruby & Moonstone  I  Malachite & Aquamarine
These pieces are truly figure flattering and a delight to wear all day, every day, we can all personally testify to that! ;-)

The Ella & Me Classic ‚ÄėSilk‚Äô Pyjama (Born 7th October 2016) October 08, 2016 10:43

How do you describe something of such exquisite beauty with so many different facets without writing pages & pages of descriptive text which would surely make many reader's eyes glaze over? 
Our 'Ella & Me' Classic Silk Pyjama presents just that dilemma.
From the beautiful silk fabric, to the timeless & elegant styling, to the flattering fit …and that's before we even start to try and tell you about how meticulously made this little treasure is.
The painstakingly slow, very careful & intricate work, which a garment of this quality demands, all takes place exclusively, here at Headen & Quarmby in Middleton, Manchester, as with everything else we make and to be completely frank it's not so much a garment but rather a work of art! ...an heirloom piece as our designers call it.
Therefore we’ve produced a list of adjectives which the team came up with and hope these go someway to help you understand it…
Vintage, Collectable, Limited, Romantic, Elegant, Pure, Nostalgic, Beautiful, Quality, Exquisite, Indulgence, Powerful, Aspirational, Confident, Independent, Sensual & Sexy
The 'Ella & Me' Classic Silk Pyjama is made specifically to order for each customer by our incredible team of artisans and sent to you in a gorgeous, satin ribbon tied gift box, delicately wrapped in tissue, with a special thank you card from all of us and even photographs of your actual garments production taking place.
*(As such please allow 7 to 10 days for delivery)
...And we know this piece is incredibly expensive, not surprising when you take into account all the the work it involves, not to mention the cost of the fabrics & trimmings etc. ...and we’d like to thank you so much for indulging us, but if nothing else it highlights the wonderful skills our machinists have worked extremely hard to achieve and it's the very same ones that make every pair of your Kinky Knickers! :-)
We’re extremely proud of them, in awe of them actually!
Headen & Quarmby has been producing the finest, luxury & quintessentially British lingerie since 1935 and to this very day we continue to design and manufacture every garment in our own factory here in Manchester, England.
