In the year 1750, John Ross founded a whip-making business at 238 Piccadilly, London.
James Swaine later bought this business in 1798, after being the foreman of a successful whip-making business in Holborn for some years.
After a royal appointment with His Majesty King George III and his sons, the Prince of Wales and the Duke and Duchess of York, Clarence, Kent, Cumberland, and Cambridge, Swaine Adeney’s quality reputation increased quickly.
The royal appointments were renewed in the reigns of His Majesty George IV and His Majesty William IV. In 1835, James Swaine moved his business to larger premises at 185 Piccadilly. The business continued to flourish and in 1845 Edward Swaine partnered with his nephew and Swaine Adeney was born.
Many things remain the same today in many ways, the same crafts are used to mould fine leather by hand: tools, stitching and engraving of each piece in the traditional tradition.
Swaine Adeney’s workshops in Cambridgeshire and Norfolk are (sadly) one of the last remaining UK studios in the UK to craft fine leather in this way. This is where customers can send their favourite parts in for repair, regardless of age!
In 1851, Swaine Adeney decided to display his fine products to the world at the London Exposition held at the newly built Crystal Palace. The exhibition was the largest the world has ever seen (drawing more than six million visitors to a space four times the size of St. Peter’s in Rome).
Swaine Adeney won several medals at the London Exposition, prompting the company to display their products at the 1900 Paris Exposition (which was followed by other medals). Swaine Adeney’s reputation was now growing globally, as the best producer of leather goods.
The company specialized in the manufacture of the best umbrellas, canes, whips and products
