About Us

Heritage Trimmings Ltd was founded in 1991, by the present owners Nick and Karen Tubbs, initially to make the gold, silver, and silk passementerie for the restoration of The King’s Apartments at Hampton Court Palace.

Everything that Heritage Trimmings designs and makes is produced in their historic factory based in the East Midlands city of Derby. Under 2 hours by train from London visitors are welcome to see their beautiful passementerie being made, or to discuss their projects with the design team.

From simple excellence to sumptuous opulence Heritage Trimmings offers it all, and it is all designed and made in Great Britain.
