VISITING PANTHERELLA & TUSTING FACTORIES - MADE IN ENGLAND

With so much uncertainty in the world right now, a Chinese stock market mini-crash and the possibility of a Greek exit from the Euro, us British and our tiny island have a lot to be happy about. For starters we can withdraw more that £60 from our cash points and although we love to queue, camping out overnight is a bit much (even for us). Then there was the inspirational Woman's English Football team who finished 3rd at the football world cup and with Andy Murray firing on all cylinders at Wimbledon, these should be happy times.

Add to the mix a Great British manufacturing revival pioneered by brands such as Pantherella and Tusting, I feel it is time to give ourselves a little pat on the back, whilst sipping a nice brew of course.
