Florence - a unique something blue garter!

Continuing the series of in depth posts on our new collection of lace garters I thought today we'd have a good look at 'Florence' our unique combination of silk and lace garter. Florence is a band of delicate blue silk edged with our extraordinary lace, more on that later!, and finished with a single shimmering pearl. 

The picture below is 'zoomed' so you can see the detail on the garter. The 'something blue' band is cut by hand from huge sheets of silk by hand and encloses the elastic that keeps our garter on your leg during the big day! The band is edged with the delicate lace you can see. Because the silk is against your leg this is probably our most comfortable garter to wear - it's like wearing a cloud! Our lace is sourced from an English company who have been making lace since 1845 under the stewardship of the same family, 8 generations of the same  family to be precise! The final flourish is the pearl that forms the centrepiece of the garter, it is securely stitched by hand and, like the rest of this and all our garters, should last for decades not just the one day of your wedding. We desperately want all our garters to be worn 100 years from now, it's an incredible goal to aim for!
