My Interview with Englana® – Immerse yourself in the world of true British Luxury

At Englana® we were determined to create a distinctly British luxury brand that would support British manufacturers, businesses and jobs.

Tell us about your company
Englana® was born in Shropshire in the heart of England. It is hard not to be inspired by these surrounding landscapes in some of England’s finest hill country. We wanted to create a product that would, in its design, capture the natural elements of our environment whilst utilising exclusive yarns, fibres and raw materials. The wonderful materials that are used at Englana® are as natural as possible – wool, cottons, leather, linens – and are made using traditional British craftsmanship, which we both champion and celebrate.

At Englana® we were determined to create a distinctly British luxury brand that would support British manufacturers, businesses and jobs. All the raw materials have been sourced in England and, as our early prosperity and wealth was founded on the wool and leather trades and the cotton and textiles mills, this seemed an obvious place to start.

With an ethos, the craftsmen and women ready, the materials sourced and the desire firmly ignited, Englana® was born.

Englana®’s very first luxury product was The Rupert and he now sits alongside a core range of stunning items for those discerning customers who yearn for something special that will last a lifetime. It has been an incredible journey so far, filled with new discoveries, with learning, with fun and inevitable frustrations. We are proud to now lead a team of wonderful people who share my aim, believe in our ethos and have worked with us to create the luxury English products that proudly bear the name ‘Englana®’.

British Luxury

Established in 2015 by rural business power couple Philip and Helen Gutteridge, Englana® is a brand that epitomises natural, British luxury. So what better way to understand the brand than to hear the story in their own words…

In a former life Philip was a navigating officer in the Merchant navy before joining the army for more excitement.

We have always adored and been fascinated by beautiful quality items that celebrate style, elegance and design. We both feel extremely passionate about our island’s proud heritage, our history and our wonderful countryside, having our own family roots in farming and agriculture.

Through Englana® we wanted to create a brand that would marry the two, beautiful, luxurious products made from the highest quality materials that would age gracefully and stand the test of time. We feel incredibly proud that Englana® is synonymous with stylish design that celebrates our English heritage.
