Lansdown is a small family owned business based in Carmarthen, Wales. They started life as Quiltknit, manufacturing technical knit shooting jumpers for the shooting fraternity for over thirty years. Their expertise in high performance fabrics was recognised when they were asked to make specialised wicking horse rugs for premium rug manufacturer Lansdown.
Despite the fact that this was a new market for us, we found that we were both passionate about the same things: Using only the best quality fabrics, ensuring a perfect fit (whether human, equine or canine!) and offering excellent value for money. Our shared values led to us acquiring Lansdown in the 1990s.
Our shooting apparel has continued to grow from strength to strength, with the recent introduction of our half zip style and with Quiltknit being incorporated into the Lansdown brand in the first half of 2012. Meanwhile, we are very excited about the launch later this year of our new range of Lansdown Essentials horse rugs to offer a more affordable alternative to our bespoke range of rugs, hand crafted in Wales.
