So many people catch the bug when planning a wedding – either their own or helping a friend or relative – so that their interest becomes a business venture. Well here’s another.
The Original Cuff Company is based just outside York and run by Katy Walker and Kath Russon.
They make napkin cuffs and bridal accessories using vintage material and lace, jewels, buttons and brooches.
Katy launched the business after making many of the accessories for her sister’s wedding last year. It had a vintage theme and the napkin cuffs were given to guests as favours.
Katy says: “They were so admired, we thought that other people may like them too.”
Katy is a woman after my own heart.
“I love an excuse to buy vintage lace, buttons and ribbons! Sometimes I just go through my collections and admire them myself! But it is lovely to be able to create beautiful things that hopefully other people will appreciate.”
There are three ranges and the cuffs can be made to order to fit in with your colours and theme and are hand-stitched and embellished.
They range in price from £4 to £25 but, uniquely, for many of the cuffs The Original Cuff Company offers a buy-back service where a proportion of the cost is refunded if you send your cuffs back after you’ve finished with them.
Katy and Kath also make wrist cuffs, handlets, birdcage veils and ring pillows.
