Lansdown is a small family owned business based in Carmarthen, Wales. We started life as Quiltknit, manufacturing technical knit shooting jumpers for the shooting fraternity for over thirty years. Our expertise in high performance fabrics was recognised when we were asked to make specialised wicking horse rugs for premium rug manufacturer Lansdown.
Despite the fact that this was a new market for us, we found that we were both passionate about the same things: Using only the best quality fabrics, ensuring a perfect fit (whether human, equine or canine!) and offering excellent value for money. Our shared values led to us acquiring Lansdown in the 1990s and we continue to make our premium and bespoke horse rugs, hand crafted in Wales, to the present day.
Our shooting apparel has continued to grow from strength to strength, with the recent introduction of our half zip style, the addition of gun dog drying coats to the range, and with Quiltknit being incorporated into the Lansdown brand in the first half of 2012.
The most exciting development to our Lansdown story has surely been the development of our range of ladies equestrian clothing. The journey started at Badminton Horse Trials in 2011 where we introduced a few colourful polos and hoodies to brighten our stand and break up the displays of rugs. We were overwhelmed with the response as people queued in the aisles to purchase! Encouraged, we developed our first capsule collection in 2012, and two seasonal collections followed in 2013 which were also made available to trade customers.
