Our Story

NURSEY SHEEPSKIN is a British fifth-generation family business dating back to 1846.

Throughout the company's long history we have prided ourselves on producing high-quality, handmade products for our loyal customers.

Managing Director Tim Nursey has a lifetime’s experience making sheepskin products and is the latest generation to run the business - established by his forefather Samuel Nursey.

Today, Tim still applies the same principle as Samuel to “work only with the finest lambskins.”

Once delivered to our workshop in Suffolk, these are matched for colour and texture by eye and touch before being transformed into slippers, hats, headbands, gloves and mittens by long-serving skilled employees.

Cut by hand, our items are built to last and we hope there will be something for all the family in our collection available here purely online since we ceased our wholesale operation and closed our factory shop in 2014.

Like most British manufacturing companies, we have had to adapt to a changing retail environment and we now operate solely as a boutique online business, selling a select range of our most beautiful luxury items including hats, gloves and slippers.

Our products are specially made-to-order so delivery may take up to 10-14 days.

Based out of Bungay, Suffolk, we use ethically sourced skins.

We truly believe we are unique compared to other sheepskin businesses. Who else can boast a client base including most famously icon 'Del Boy', portrayed by Sir David Jason, in the hit BBC comedy 'Only Fools And Horses' in which he regularly wore his famous Nursey coat?

More recently in 2010 we were named winners of the Traditional Business category in the Countryside Alliance Awards. We are proud that the enduring quality and reputation of our fine products are recognised.
