SO VERY BRITISH, MY DEAR!
No matter what's going on in your busy life or how the weather might surprise you, our colourful designs and touchy-feely materials will bring back a smile to your face and a spring in your step.
The idea of the brand came about on a chilly day in November 2016, whilst strolling along the Thames.
The day turned out to be colder than expected and we started longing for a cosy fireplace, warm blankets and snug socks.
And, just as it began raining, a heating & plumbing van parked in front of us, and voilà: the brand was born.
We are Brij & Franck. We are Heating & Plumbing London. We stumbled across each other in Manhattan back in 2001. A small disclaimer before we move on, that neither of us are really into fixing heaters or unblocking drains, but when we came across the name we fell in love with it.
Across many adventures and career changes, we finally put our heart and soul into creating Heating & Plumbing London. This way, Brij can indulge in his obsession of fine-looking socks to his heart’s content. Brij was born in India and grew up in England, and Franck is from Brittany in France. We come from two very unique places with a strong tradition of craft and we decided to make London our home. Heating & Plumbing London was born out of our love for beautifully crafted, comfy & cosy products that have a life beyond one single use, fad or fashion, and as both of us are creatures of habit, we value things that gently fit into our daily routine and become part of our life. We are out to do the same for you with Heating & Plumbing London. Longevity and everyday beauty define all our products, which are all lovingly made in the British Isles.
Our furthest manufacturer is just over 500 miles away from our London studio.
Our nearest artisan workshop is under 8 miles away and we are working with 3 workshops based in London!
We have worked hard to source local mills, workshops, and leathersmiths with whom we have built long-standing relationships, supporting the British manufacturing heritage as well as doing our best to reduce our carbon footprint.
We are proudly part of Selfridges' Project Earth. This project meets our goals of being a modern and playful British luxury brand creating beautifully made accessories locally with the planet in mind.
Let's do things differently!
