1. About the owner

You’d struggle to find a more charismatic person than the owner of our Luxe Lace factory, Joe Wong. His infectious energy rubs off on all around him, so that from the moment you enter the factory doors you’re greeted by waves and smiles and there’s always someone laughing on the production floor. Joe talks at length with us about his love for combining western management techniques with Japanese philosophies to create a positive working environment. When I last saw him he was off to an Ikebana workshop on the traditional art of Japanese flower arranging.

2. What do they specialise in?

This team produce our intricately detailed Spell Bride collections. They work with us to mill the bespoke placement lace and mesh (off-sight) and do the complex finishing by hand. The skill and experience that some of the seamstresses bring to these very complex pieces is incredible, (though Joe is always quick to correct me, “the work isn’t complex, it’s comprehensive!’). The very ‘comprehensive’ print placement and fine trim detailing of our more intricate print stories are also created with expert skill.

3. Why we chose them

No matter what sort of challenge we set them, they still manage to surprise us with their attention to detail and the intricacy of their work. Designs that we thought were impossible have been brought to life thanks to their dedication and craft.
