Inspiring Fashion & Lifestyle Products you can feel good about

Hi there, lovely to meet you!

I'm Jan, the lady behind the Antonia York shop, and I run the shop with my husband, Rob, and our team of production partners.

ANTONIA YORK is a brand driven by the desire to create stylish, sustainable, ethically sourced fashion accessories and lifestyle products you can feel good about.

Our Fashion Accessories, wherever possible, are manufactured locally in Leicestershire (UK) and we source our premium quality yarns and materials from within the UK too;

We also offer a range of fashion accessories, gifts, and lifestyle products which are manufactured by local artisans and small businesses, or are produced by one of our Fair Trade partners;

Our Health...Naturally range of bath and body products offers you environmentally sustainable, natural, products made from bamboo, luffa and pumice stone.

Our Vision: To build a lifestyle and fashion brand that supports communities and small businesses, that cares about the environment, and offers its customers quality, ethically sourced and produced, products that they can feel good about.

OUR STORY

Jan:
My background is in fashion design. I studied knitwear and textile design at college and university and my first job was as a knitwear designer, producing knitted garments for well known High Street retailers.

Later, I began designing bridal gowns for private clients and in 1996 opened my bridal shop Antonia York Bridalwear in the historic town of Market Bosworth, Leicestershire.

I moved into the online world in 2001 and presently have three online shops selling fashion accessories, lifestyle products, gifts and fabric.

Rob:

I've enjoyed a successful business career owning and managing several recruitment businesses and these days, I also find time to help Jan with both the day-to-day running of our online shops, as well as leading on the management of much of the business administration and finances.

So, if you're looking for a special gift for a family member or friend, or just fancy treating yourself to something that is not available on the high street, then please take a few moments to wander through our shop and see what catches your eye.

Thank you so much for visiting Antonia York.

Jan
