Founded in 1923 by the Haythornthwaite family in Lancashire, Grenfell began as a ‘wonder-fabric’ developed specifically to meet the outerwear needs of explorer and missionary doctor, Sir Wilfred Grenfell who agreed to lend the fine cloth his name. Over the following decades it was worn by British Royalty, racing car drivers, adventurers and aviatrixes, outdoorsmen, sportsmen and style icons including Cary Grant.

Grenfell re-launched with a collection of luxury iconic outerwear and a collaborative capsule with Bluebird and members of the Campbell family inspired by original pieces from Grenfell’s beginnings.
